PALM BEACH, Fla. (CP) - They wore the suit and tie and had the briefcase in hand, but somehow Luc Robitaille and Steve Yzerman stood out as the doors opened and Tuesday's NHL board of governors meeting wrapped up.

The two ex-star players are now in the front office of their respective teams and accompanied their governors to the two-day meeting.

"It was interesting to see the passion from the governors to make the game better," said Robitaille, last month named assistant to the governor for the Los Angeles Kings. "That was interesting from a former player's perspective."

Yzerman, a vice-president with the Detroit Red Wings, was also intrigued by what he heard over the two days.

"Interesting, and for me very informative," said Yzerman.

The two retired players got a bird's eye view as owners and GMs weren't able to find consensus on the hot button issue of the NHL's unbalanced schedule.
