1. When you enter the zone, looking at the top part, a player cannot be ahead of the straight red line although the puck carrier can be at the dashed blue-line. This reduces the amount of "close offsides" because the guy can be a couple feet ahead of the puck carrier without calling offside. This will reduce the amount of offsides called as a team enters the zone.
Dammit I hate offsides
Do you realize you've just made it so the linesman has to try to keep his eyes on the puck, players and two different lines that are 6 feet apart ? Do you hate offsides more than you hate blown calls ?
I could probably go for different lines for in/out, but having 2 lines to keep track of for offsides would be pretty tough to handle for an official.
