I was just wondering what you think about the new rules.What rule do u think mad the biggest impact in the NHL?? I think the penalty shootout, it is pretty exiting to watch.
This subject has been beaten to death over and over again on the main NHL thread.
It appears that the majority like the 'new' NHL as a whole but dislike certain rules like the shootout.
Me? I love everything about the new NHL. I love the delay of game penalty for flipping the puck over the glass. I LOVE the penalty shot as way too many games ended in boring ties in the past. Some coaches even used to say that "a road tie is better than a home win" - whatever that's supposed to mean.
I hope things don't regress because I can never go back to how it was before. The game actually rewards speed and skill now.
