NHL Rule Change Question

The nhl recently came out with new rules that are ment to promote the offensive side of the game.



Do you believe these new rules will be inforced ?

and will the game become offensive again the way it was 13 to 25 yrs ago
or will it stay the same defensive rut?

I don't think it will become as high scoring as the mid 80s, but I do expect an increase in offense.

Goalies are smaller, ice is open, no clutching, hooking onto players with a clear shot at the net.

Goals will be up. We'll be seeing more 4-3 games than 2-1 games. But it won't be insanly higher.

All of them have to be enforced. The only one thats objective is the crackdown on obstruction, which will be dealt with for a short time, then gradually abandoned.

But as Larry Robinson said, all this means is coaches adapt. In his case, NJ plays the 1-3-1. There will be more goals, but its still going to be a defensive minded game.

I am 100% the game will become more offensive. Like 15 years ago? No..but the GA will go about about 1.5 - 2 a game.

They need to increase the size of blue lines like they did in the AHL. a good 6" per blue line would be nice.
It should be interesting to see if they actually call clutching. man think of what that might mean.

Offensive play will be awsom if the rules are followed, but I think in order for these rules to be played out properly the rinks have to get bigger aswell. Not olympic size bigger, but more like 4-6ft wider, and only like 10-15 ft longer, just enough to adapt to the bigger players. Any new rink built should have to follow these or similar changes.

I'm optomistic, and am sure the NHL will become more open.
