10 minutes of 4 on 4 OT.

A shootout win awards you a win, for tie breaking purposes, but each team only gets one point, as if it ended in a tie.

10 minute 4-on-4 Overtime of course.

If that doesn't happen, I propose this instead of a shootout:
Each team gets one 5 minute 5-on-4 power play (or perhaps 4-on-3). Whichever team scores more times during their 5 minute power play gets the extra point and wins the game. If neither team scores during their 5 minutes, continue in innings format similar to the shootout. (You could even make the second inning 4-on-3 if the first inning isn't already). Short-handed goals could be worth 2 goals.

Might as well not have it then.

If, at the time of a goal being scored, there is an offensive player (defined by skate location, or body, if on the ice) in the goaltender's crease, along with the goaltender, that goal shall be disallowed.

Also, if the referee determines that a defensive player was forced into the crease by an offensive player, the goal shall be disallowed. If the referee determines that an offensive player was forced, beyond the player's reasonable control, into the crease the goal shall be allowed.

I like this idea but make it 3 min instead of 5

A loss for a regulation, OT or shootout loss. You get nothing.

No points.
That'd make a shootout a hundrer times more important than it is now.

As for my suggestion, just heard on the Marek vs. Wyshinksi podcast: After a playoff series, the winning team gets to shave the losers beards.

I don't think players or coaches want to have an extra 5 minutes of excessive shotblocking all the time.

I'd like to see steroids legalized and be allowed. It would make the game faster, more exciting, and more action packed.

Obvious error. The player to eject would certainly be Lidstrom.

When a Diving penalty is assessed it negates the trip and gives a PP to the non-diving team. You would think this should already be the case but the NHL is ass backwards in common sense situations like this.

Also when they announce the dive...its "2 minutes for Diving" not "2 minutes for Unsportsmanlike Conduct"...embarrass the diver imo.

If a team ends the OT session on a PP, they get to select one of the opposing shootout shooters.

If Boston and Toronto are tied after OT and Boston was on a PP, but didn't get the full 2 minutes before the game ended they then select Colton Orr to be one of the shooters in the shootout.

These errors are especially glaring when they involve called off goals that randomly don't go to video review! Other than soccer, what kind of bushleague professional sport is willing to call off goals based on the sheer word of their officials. We live in an era where video-review is both simple and time efficient and miscalls should not be considered accepted practice!

A shot clock in the opposing teams end. You have 15 seconds to take a shot on goal and if you don't you have to clear the zone ala being offside. Except on the powerplay of course.

No more points for any wins during the regular season, and no playoffs. Stanley Cup is credited to the team with the best Fenwick.

Penalty shots should have assists.

If the idea is to recreate the situation because the guy on the breakaway was illegally robbed of a golden opportunity, why should the passer(s) lose out on the assist?

Not that radical, but every time there are matching penalties, be it 2 minutes for each team or 5 minutes each from a fight, have the 2 teams skate 4 on 4 for the duration of those penalties.

I agree that it is done far too often, but there are circumstances where both penalties are earned. I find oftentimes that the first penalty was legitimate, but the embellishment deserved to be punished as well

To encourage aggressive penalty killing, if you score a goal shorthanded, your man comes out of the box, even if it's a major/double minor.

Interesting that this hasn't been mentioned in two pages but...

Eliminate the shootout, bring back ties.

Exactly. Like it or not it's now part of the game, it decides games, and it needs to be treated as such.

Give the shootout full power or don't have one at all.

After teams are tied during regulation time, have the following 2-minute periods: 4 on 4, 3 on 3, 2 on 2, 1 on 1. If no one scores after all that, take out the goalies.

I've thought about that rule myself, but do you know how slow and boring the game would be? Even with that change, it still makes sense to ice the puck since you're taking time off the clock.
