Teams that are playing the trap are often icing the puck at even strength.... There needs to be some extra deterent to icing the puck at even strength.... It is obvious that for teams like the Canucks, Ducks, Devils, etc... that not being allowed to change lines after icing the puck is not enough of a deterent....
What about something like 3 icings in a period = 2 minute penalty for delay of game. Or something similar.
You realize of course that people hate the 2 minutes for shooting it over the glass. Doncha think they'd hate this idea too for the same reason. Especially if they were trying to hit a guy on a breakaway, which is actually gonna deter them from trying it with that rule change. That would be counterproductive I'd think
