Which of the New Rules do you like most? Hate Most?

Postby ExPatriatePen on Tue Mar 07, 2006 10:26 am

Well, almost 3/4 of the way into the season and I have my opinions:

Best

1) Smaller Goalie pads
2) Two Line Pass
3) No change on Icing

Worst

1) Shoot out
Hated it before - Still hate it
2) Decreased area for Goalies to handle Puck

Jury still out

1) Smaller center ice (More Room Inside the Blue Lines)
Haven't noticed a difference
2) Zero Tolerance on Hooking Holding Obstruction
Still need more consistantcy on calls
I think we see less hard hitting hockey because of it, (which was not the intent of the rule).

Location: Source, Destination, Protocol, Port, size, sequence number, check sum... Yep, that about covers it.

I like the shootout but would rather see 5 shooters instead of 3.

I still think the NHL has a problem with officials interpreting the rule book and putting their personal agenda ahead of the sport. Need I remind anyone of my conversation with an NHL official.

I totally agree. Giving an 18 year-old kid a penalty because he looked in the ref's direction on his way to the penalty box is one of the most heinous calls I have ever seen.
