I guess the GM's should never propose anything, ever, unless the league commissioned a study on it... Obviously they can't just have an easy compare / contrast session to determine something like this. Far too many variables. They're just making suggestions on what they think could help.
Guess they should've never proposed getting rid of the red line or any post lockout changes, since there wasn't 100% concrete evidence that it would have the desired effect.
My final point is that the logic is the same as with hybrid icing. Reducing the amount of times people go full speed into the boards = reducing the amount of horrific / unnecessary injuries. That's my thinking, and it seems on par with some GM's and how the refs have been officiating.
