AHL Approves Rule Changes

No touch icing, tag up rule, shoot out, etc.....

Also for Mets fans, the Norfolk Tides ownership has purchased the Norfolk Admirals.

Interesting. This is going to be a chance to see the future--especially since there will be increased exposure (due to the lockout) in the hockey world to AHL games next fall.

I hate the idea of a shootout in the NHL though.

As much as I hate the idea of a shootout ending ties in the NHL, I think it will actually help to attract a lot more people to hockey.

Really, on the off-chance that that a game (including a 5 minute overtime) is going to end in a shootout? That's going to make a difference to a general public that's more interested in watching car racing?

It's just another gimmick.

This should be ineteresting to watch those games next year. It'll be fun.

I shootout will help draw fans? You have to be kidding. Just a little more to be added to the overall bastardizing of the game because you know the NHL won't be far behind in adopting those rules.
