No. Go Hybrid or don't change it at all. Without any potential races for the puck icings just become even more uneventful and it's already one of the most uneventful events in sports.

Yes.

It prevents contraversy on who touched the puck (I know, I know, it's just icing), and prevents guys from running into each other.

I DO enjoy when somebody beats out the icing though and keeps things rolling. I would just rather it be automatic for the reasons stated.

I would consider hybrid icing a form of automatic icing. At least that's how I voted.

No. I do not think the implementation will bring more good to the game. Sure it might solve the questionable close calls as to who got to the puck first (big deal). The best excuse to change it would be to prevent injury, but I do not think those types of injuries are absurdly prevalent. I just think the race for the puck and the possibility of getting to it first and making something happen is what/how it's supposed to be.

wouldn't care at all if they changed it to no touch icing.
