I dont think the league has a say in this. I dont think they can make a rule saying you must sit on this bench, im pretty sure the teams would just much rather sit on the closer bench. It prevents offsides, and its closer to the goalie to get the extra attacker out there for the 3rd period and on delayed calls. Also if you make a bad line change as the far bench youre absolutely screwed.
Only one i like is the removal of the trapezoid. that was never a good idea. Goalies should be able to take the risk and go into the corner to play the puck.
Bang on. This is the only rule that should be changed. The trapezoid is completely unnecessary. the other rule changes dont make any sense. No icing on the PK, are you kidding me? Thats no minor tweak, that would completely change the game. offsides no change isnt a huge deal because you arent pinned in your own end, but theres really no point in making it a rule
