All the talk of using the boards, when I was a kid we were taught a simple procedure for line changes that keeps everyone out of the way of everyone else.
Off the bench over the boards and onto the bench through the doors.
It works if everyone does it. Its also a lot easier going over the boards from bench to ice than vice versa as most of the time its a bigger jump from the ice up. I hate when I'm trying to jump the boards onto the ice and running into the guy trying to jump coming off the ice.
I have really short legs for my height and going over from ice is possible, but not simple or elegant at all (I have to boost myself up like I'm getting out of a pool). I prefer to go in the doors, but always jump over to the ice if its an on the fly change.
Out over the boards, in through the doors, everyone is out of each others way.
