Eew. Hockey is 5 on 5. A 4 on 4 league creeps me out just thinking about it.

You cannot outlaw sound defensive play.

We europeans have been without the two line pass for a few years. It's not a big difference really. It means there will one or two more breakaways per game, other than that it's a flop. No increased scoring, however the end-to-end action could be a bit better with it, so why not. I don't see why you want to get rid of the red line though. We still need it to determin icings and stuff.

Agree. Smaller goalie equipment = more net to shoot at.

Don't agree. Thats a rule that would be confusing and probably hard to keep track of when the games get hot.

Lets have the full 2 penalty minutes even if someone scores. That would benefit skilled teams with a good powerplay and discourage teams from taking too many penaltys.

I hope they move the nets back against the back boards like it used to be and allow more curve on the sticks. Other than that, I got nothing.
