Another coach speaks out against the proposed removal of the red line

BOWMAN LINE

Bowman envisions a line running just above the faceoff circle and below the blue line. Upon reaching it, a puck carrier could then attempt a long blue line pass, but forecheckers would be enticed out of the trap to try to head off the carrier. At least it might cut down on whistles for two-line passes.

"I like the idea (that) we can go back to putting the puck in on the delayed offside," Quinn said. "But I was never in favour of moving the (goal) line out, it was never going to create room where we wanted to create it. All that did was make us cycle, to where it looked like (a panel from a Peanuts cartoon) where Pigpen and his gang had a soccer ball, playing in a cloud of dust.

"That's not the hockey I like. Maybe we can open it up, move it out of that area and get some flow."

Quinn doesn't sound impressed about what he has seen from televised club games from Europe.

"You're worried about the trap and defensive systems on the big ice and they're worse than we are," he said. "They really try to stop the game."
