I think this would have the effect of "killing" penalty killing. Why not just award a goal instead of a penalty?
Would penalty killers ever go on the offensive if they knew that, should the be caught in their own end, they would not be allowed to ice the puck for a line change?
I think it would just be a shooting gallery. Teams would be forced to be extremely passive when killing penalties, to conserve energy and avoid costly mistakes.
Anyway, just my opinion.
