The league has discussed it. They even added a rule about checking players after a touch-up. There is no reason to go to hybrid icing, because the injuries that result from it are so few and far between.

The players in the NHL have been playing checking hockey for years. It's hardly the same thing as a no checking league where you get 2 minutes for anything more than a little bump.
