ICING as an automatic penalty (delay of the game).
There's a thread on "National Hockey League" Boards, but this one has a POLL.
The NHL might be thinking about this type of penalty in the near future...

Good idea? Bad idea?

Who would ever think this would be a good idea?

Where's the option for "absolutely horrible?"

Seriously, most of the game would be played on the powerplay if this were the case.

The poll should have an "absolute disgrace to the sport of hockey" option.

Maybe. But not for every icing call. I wouldn't necessarily be against a penalty for every 5 icings or something along those lines.

It's a bad idea, but I don't see how it's any different than a penalty for putting the puck over the glass.

Like I said earlier, maybe they could pool all those incidents, such as icings, intentional offsides, pucks over the boards, and give a team a penalty for every 5 of them, or something along those lines. It would get players thinking and might make for a game that moves a bit better and not give teams an easy out when they are under pressure.

Hockey would suck.....I mean icing is part of the game.....but you can't penalize someone for icing the puck.....the puck stays in play.

That's just a ridiculous idea.....and if the NHL ever approves it.........I dunno man, hockey would suck....it'd turn into something like curling....and we'd never see any 5 on 5s anymore.

If they give 1 penalty for every icing, then that's a very bad idea. However, if they give 1 penalty for every 3-4 icings, then I absolutely love it.
I'd vote: "conditional yes"

I think that the results have proven whatever point the original poster may have been trying to prove.
