Watching guys make kamikaze runs into the board adds nothing to the game other than an occasional serious injury. Games are not won or lost because one team is better at "not getting called for icing" than another. It isn't a skill being eliminated from the game.
That would be a hybrid icing that I would like to see. There's so many injuries along the boards as is. Something needs to be done. Give the linesman more responsibility for calling icing. More players would appreciate it I assume.

I know in my men's silver league at Anaheim Ice it's scary going full force for a icing puck. Even though ITS non contact. It's still scary cause its so competitive. Can't imagine at the NHL level
