Your exciting new rule changes for when the NHL comes back!

2004/5 Lockout gave us shootouts and abolished ties. What exciting new change to the game do you propose to bring in new fans and excite disgruntled ones?

(This thread is for fun even though I think all these things would be cool my serious change to improve the game is wider ice surface but that won't happen. I'd love a new commissioner too but we prob won't get that either.)


Here are some proposals I have to make hockey better:

1. Go to 2 30 minutes halfs so we don't have to sit through 2 intermissions and ice cleanings.

2. Eliminate helmets and shoulder pads so the players are more recognizable and it is more of a skill game.

3. Eliminate face offs just give one team the puck behind their own net to start up play.

4. Make it like lacrosse where one player has to stay in the defensive end at all times and one in the offensive end.

5. Get rid of icing and offsides

6. Go to 4 on 4 instead of 5 on 5.

7. Give a 2 minute minor whenever a fight breaks out to the team of whoever loses. (Would reward teams who have better enforcers.)

My first rule change would be to get rid of the stupid 2 min penalty for shooting the puck over the glass from your defensive end. Treat it like an icing and not let the offending team change lines.

Fire Bettman, hire Vince McMahon. Change the name of the company to Xtreme Hockey League. Extract DNA from two players: Anton Babchuk and Rich Peverley. Clone said players and evenly distribute clones to all 30 teams. Watch HFBoards explode.


Nah, but really, you shouldn't be able to ice the puck on a 5 on 4.

My number one change - though not a rule - would be to bring back the FoxTrax glow-puck.

Plus I think we have had the technology to place video screens under the ice for a long time, lets get on that.

Plus the rotating ads on the boards and the heads up style ads on the glass need to implemented, those snazzy eurostyle uniform adspace should be used too.

My # 1 rule change. No more ******* lockouts or strikes. Any owner or player who tries to do it gets lined up along the dashers and gets tazered by a random fan until they soil themselves. Then they get kicked in the nads just in case they didn't get the point.

I wish there was a rule that the centerman ALWAYS has to try and make a play off the dot. Can`t stand watching, in dying moments a centerman who literally just falls on the puck and wastes time.

Another one I`ll toss out there strictly as a fun one that isn`t made for the real game but my buddy and I, when we go head to head in heated XBox battles.....under 2 minutes in the game, the player who is behind (only by 1 goal though) HAS to pull his goalie.

Nice, I assume you merely forgot to mention that those receiving kicks to the "nads" are to NOT be wearing a jock correct??

These to speed up the game/create more offense

1. No touch icing
2. Get rid of the trapezoid
3. All penalties must be served in full even if scored on
4. Change delayed offside so that you can still carry the puck into the zone, but the players that were in the zone must clear before getting involved in the play
5. Line changes can only be done on the fly or when in your offensive zone.

Others I'd like to see

6. A set number of game suspensions for suspendable offenses.
7. Allow linesmen to call certain penalties
8. Coaches right to have a play reviewed ( 1 per game )
9. Get rid of the instigator penalty
10. Play 4 on 4 for matching fighting majors
11. Go to a 3-2-1 point system

Far too logical and proactive Dom, a list perfect for Dave Branch for we know he`d be far more receptive to give these a try long before the ole boys at the NHL level would

I love #3 but cringe at the thought that I/we would have to stomach a full 2 mins of Bruins PP time

I'd like to give a team a PP after it misses on a penalty shot.

good stuff Dom. i would add double minor for diving calls.

#4 sounds good but I think it would be hard for the linesmen to get that right. What if there are 4 players in the O zone and the last one carries in the puck. How do they keep track of who has tagged up. Good idea but I think it would be difficult to get right.

Easy. they can't re-enter until all 4 have tagged up

Know none of this will happen but since question is what WE would like...

Call dives penaties (not matching unless rediculous embelleshment, the refs could have on a head set under their helmuts and check with an upstairs official in the video room to help, not only speed up "under review" plays but be on top of things like this throughout play and they can call the penalty on the next stoppage regardless of what happened to stop play, or if same play is going on when they come to a conclusion, raise the arm as a delayed penalty).

Get rid of shootouts. Bring back ties, doesn't matter whether you have OT or not but NO points for OTL's and if it ends in a tie either the teams get ZERO points or subtract points. THAT will make them "go for it" which is what they say they want (and they're not getting from the current format) maybe minus for tie, zero for OTL?

JMHO.

Double minor for dives. 4 on 4 ot, then a 3 on 3 ot, before a shootout (5 mins each). No touch icing to speed up the game a bit, which would help with the potential longer games if a 3 on 3 OT happens.


A moot point really, doesn't effect the game, but do people want to see the league go back to white jerseys at home, dark's away?

I don't mean this i a bad way by any means, but are you a soccer fan?

I can't stand ties whatsoever, i like soccer, but can never get into it (besides world cup) for that reason. Curious if there's any coorelation there.

I can see the shootout being a gripe for people, me personally i'd rather see a shootout then a tie, but i do think they can get a little more creative with OT, to make an eventual win, more of a team one.

I am not a soccer fan. my brother is a mega soccer guy but I just can't get into it.

Some of the best games I have ever seen have been tie games. I went to one that was a 0 - 0 tie against the Sen's and it was one of the best games I have ever seen.

I would rather see ties then have a team with 15 shoot out wins get into the playoffs over a team with 5 more regulation wins.

I like everything except for 3 and 10. I don't think 4 would ever happen and 5 is iffy as well but I like them.

I think 6 is a little too difficult because each should be case by case imo
