I tend to agree. And as a fan it would piss me off, frankly. Changing the red line is not going to reduce head-shots (you know that's what they're thinking) much at all IMO. But it will slow the game way down and bring us back to crappy NJ Devils style hockey every night.

For now though I'm more curious about the re-alignment. I haven't heard anything about that since it was approved and then suddenly not approved (AFAIK). We should have some interesting stuff to talk about this summer with big signings due, CBA, etc.
