Improving the NHL

All Star break time. There has been lots of debate on how to improve the NHL.

What do you think the NHL should do? Put some ideas here.

I will toss out some of mine:
(1) Serve the complete 2 minutes for minor penalties - Return to the old days. May result in a reduction of stick infractions

(2) Bring back the tag-up offside - While it promotes the dump-in, it helps the flow of the game. Eliminating it a few years to promote more skill was a nice attempt but it just has not worked

(3) Make the ice surface wider - Increase from current width halfway to the European ice. This will give more space but also not eliminate contact. This will be a difficult one, as it involves removing seats potentially which is revenue etc..

(4) Along with #3, make overtime 5 on 5 again. Hopefully the additional space will be enough to remove this "gimmick"

These are the ones I can think of now
