What did you guys think when they took out the red line?

Agreed that was an awful rule. But the no tolerance for a toe in the crease was even worse.
As for the red line, at first I had mixed feelings about removing it. I know in Europe, there was an opinion that having to defend a longer breakaway pass just made teams play even more defensively and trap more. Didn't see to have that effect when the NHL removed it, so I liked the change at first from an entertainment perspective.
However, with the current epidemic of concussions, I think they really aught to look to putting the two-line pass rule back in to slow the game down for the safety of players.
I'd rather watch Sidney Crosby play a little bit slower than not play at all.
