I like it. This keeps the defence guessing. If they dump it in, the defence has a long way to go to retrieve it, and chances are they'll be banged up in the process. This means 1 of the defensemen will most likely hang back a bit to collect the puck. If the forwards see a defenseman back, they can carry it in with a little more room.
As it is now, all a team has to do is line up at the blueline, force the dump, and watch as their goalie rings it around the boards.
I love it when goaltenders come out to play the puck. I think that they may underestimate the excitement it may create. Goaltenders now a days use that as a way to make outlet passes and speed up the game, not slow it down. Also it creates excitement because when goalies come out to play the puck, a lot of things can happen, such as gafts where the goalie gives the puck away, or running the goalie causing fights.
Taking away the goaltenders ability from playing the puck means only one more thing. More clutching and grabbing behind the net, slowing the game down even more. Hooray!
As a Devils fan...no (what did you expect me to say? :p )
Though as a hockey fan in general, I do wonder what it would be like. Goalies wouldn't be able to intercept the dump and it could increase scoring because of more time in the offensive zone. Then I ask why don't forwards dump the puck in the corners if they're facing goalies like Brodeur?
It's stupid and pointless. If the intent is to increase the offense there are a number of better ways. It's also inefficient in that it doesn't impact all teams equally so it doesn't impact all games equally.
