They might have picked it by accident. I got in a heated argument with my mother of all people about it and her point was if you're penalized you then why should you be allowed to ice it. I told her wait till it happens and watch injuries skyrocket.
Unfortunately it is not. They are going to try it out in a few markets to see how it works. Hopefully it gets shot down.
I don't know much about USA Hockey but seriously is this their way of trying to improve their system in the US or what?
I'm glad Hockey Canada hasn't done crap like this, at least as far as I know. They do a hell of a job with minor hockey. USA Hockey should consider taking a page outta Hockey Canada books.
funny thing is I actually thought about this once to myself. I was going over in my head how the NHL could increase scoring. I quickly dismissed it b/c it was a horrible idea. I can't believe USA hockey is going to try this out.
