Those suggestions make no sense to me. They're not about making the game better. Having constant penalty shots or constant icing calls during penalties sounds like a snooze-fest to me. You want to keep the action continuous, not have faceoffs every three seconds and 5 penalty shots during the third period.

To me putting the amount of times you can do something is just plain laughable. You really think that a ref won't "forget" that the Rangers are on their 3rd clearing for the game. To me it would just make it more difficult to get into a game.

Scoring is FINE...We've got 40-50 goal scorers in the league, if anything I think we need to stop hamstringing the defense and let the players play.
