The irritating part is that they're already screwing with it.

The league has elected not to make the offensive zone bigger, which was half the point. In the plan's original form, more room was created in the neutral zone to avoid the trap, and more was created for puck movement in the offensive zone.
Now they've eliminated half the effectiveness of the plan, but when it fails they can still publically pat themselves on the back and say, "Well, we certainly tried our best. The plan just doesn't work. Let's go back to the old way."
I think this was Bobby Smith's idea, not Dave Taylor.
