Stumbled in to this when doing some 'Googling' on NHL rule changes. (I'm doing research on the goalie pad thigh rise rule change). Surprised that no one else has posted this yet

When will hockey rules be left alone? Seriously.

The rules will never be left alone. They never really were anyway. Just better hope they don't screw up the game too much. Cross your fingers.

They keep trying to improve the game. The game does not need improving!

They need to do away with OT and the shootout if they want to improve the game.

Was there this much complaining when the Art Ross net was done away with in favor of one with a rounded back?

I agree. But the only thing that matters these days is money. I believe they keep thinking that if they change things it will bring in more people which will bring in more money.
I agree with you that they should leave things alone, but with the ol'e mighty dollar involved they never will. I just hope and pray that they don't screw things up too much to where the game is unwatchable. Crossing my fingers on that one.

Why not just have a new rule so no NHL team is allowed to have a goalie bigger than 5'8. Problem solved! [Cool]

Personally I find 4 on 4 to be the best part of the game and therefore I love OT. 4 v 4 is so much better hockey than 5 v 5 IMO. Much more flow, more skill/skating on display, puck possession is key, you have to play great defense or you are hosed. No clutching/grabbing and many more quality chances/shots... Unless you like seeing them mix it up and find hitting to be the best part of the game, then I don't know how you can't say that 4 v 4 hockey isn't fun to watch. Actually I think that if you wanted to do away with concussions/boarding injuries, 4 v 4 would go a great distance to solve that as players could not go for the big hit without big risk of odd-man rushes...

How you claim the game does "not need improving" then immediately suggest an improvement? You contradicted yourself.

The simple fact is the game has always been in a state of flux. Nets, tolerance of hooking, dimensions of the rink, boards/glass, equipment.

I like the new nets.

I just wish they would make the big investment and make the rinks wider. More room, would be more space for skills to be showcased, and more room means more time and space to avoid headshots.

After watching the Flyers- Rangers game last night, I can honestly say that I don't like the new nets. Not the dimensions of the nets per say, but in Phily they have the nets pulled so tightly that you really can't tell when or how a goal is scored. I don't know if all of the teams have their nets so tightly bound or not. But the puck shoots out of there so fast sometimes you can't even tell if someone scored or not.

But just wait until a goalie gets hit in the back of the head with a 100 mph slap shot and get's knocked out by it as it exits the net so fast that it knocks the guy out. I can't wait for that. The prissy NHL will loosen them nets up then.

Not to mention the other prissy rule. Taking your helmet off before a fight will get you an extra 2 minute penalty.
