It is an interesting theory about the "new" rules reducing stick and holding obstruction actually makes the game more dangerous. More speed. Cant use stick or arms. Have to make split second decisions on when and how to use your body. Not everything is under your control once you make decision to attempt a hit....

Chara hit is one example. But for me what I'd like to see the league allow is putting your hand on someone and "guiding" them into the boards as compared to having to push. I really think this rule change could help address a lot of the unnecessary boarding.
