Make icing be from your own blueline and inside. There is no real legitimate reason for red line icings. Inside the blueline indicates that you are just throwing the puck down ice to clear the zone. Once you are in the neutral zone, there should be no icing for throwing the puck in, especially in an attempt to beat a neutral zone trap.

Ditch the red line, make icings from the blue line and in.
That would be interesting, except it would eliminate the red line, it would change the ice.

And id be afraid the morons running the show would eventually ditch the bluelines as well. And turn our sport into a sideshow like roller hockey or beach soccer.

That's how little faith I have in the people running the league.
