Here's an idea. How about removing assistant coaches?
Wouldn't that be a direct response to overcoaching? Coach's aren't unionized afaik, so there's no problems.
No assistant coaches behind the bench during games.
You can't stop coaching. Putting players in situations where coaching is prohibited is silly to me. You're removing strategy from the game, and frankly if you do what you're speaking of you'll end up in a trapping-friendly NHL again. Every line will have to be able to trap and smother the opposing players, so offense might go up, but it won't be exciting hockey.
