When is the E gunna get replay; also variate the icing rule?

I see the AHL is finally getting replay this year:

I see something weird with the icing rule being done here:

• The Board has also approved a test of a variation on Rule 81 (“Icing”) at the request of the National Hockey League, that will, in the event of a potential icing violation, complete the play should a defending player be the first to reach the end zone face-off dots and provided the puck has crossed the goal line at that point. This rule will be in effect until Nov. 19, 2012, at which time its continued use will be determined by the Board. This was the only rules test approved.
I would like to see the E do this on those icings where the team that sent it down is going to get to the puck first. I've always thought that variation should be thrown in to the no touch.
