The international game with the larger ice surface and no two line pass rule is very exciting and the fast, skill guys have room to fly. We'll never get there because the NHL already has smaller ice surfaces in place and Bettman + his cronies have their heads where you'd need a glass navel to see out. It struck me after the last winter Olympics how much more fun it is to watch the international style game.
I do agree that calling all the obstruction penalties CONSISTENTLY would help. I also like the idea of 4 on 4 hockey for coincidental minors and serving the full 2 or 4 minutes of a penalty regardless of goals scored.
