What would you invent?

Alright guys (and gals)...so what would you hockey players invent or try to improve in the game of hockey?

Here here. Honestly, I can't see how anyone can play with these damn composite sitcks. My son plays with one and I picked it up the other day and the damn end wobbles. Jamming a wooden blade and knob on the ends just doesn't stay tight for very long. There has to be a lot of play in them that absorb a lot of the force of the shot, I flat out couldn't use it. I went and broke our my old Sherwood

A puck with embedded RFID that would obviate any need for replays regarding whether the puck crossed the goal line and whether it was struck in with a stick above the crossbar.

obviate - that's a $5 word

seems like this should already be an option - there must be some issue with it - the RFID would have to sense all the way to the outside surface of the puck as the entire puck must cross the line. Not sure how those things work but wouldn't you also need the sensors or some kind of an emittor on the very inside edge of the pipes and goal line and wouldn't everything need to be very precise/sensitive? Does an RFID send or receive or reflect a signal? now I'm just confused....

right now, break away visors. I'm afraid they're going to ban fighting all together if they don't pass this no helmet removal rule soon. The one major thing standing in from of that is players wearing visors

Tape for your blade that you don't have to re-do every time you have a game/practice. Something to spray on your equipment that makes it dry really fast.

No seriously guys. If we do make a product that makes it big, the inventor gets a cut of the profit. No questions asked.

Something that would make the puck move in the air better.

Soccer has all these snazzy bending shots, there needs to be some way to make them bend better in hockey.

A frisbee can curve, a puck ain't too different in shape.

Or, hell, a frisbee-shaped puck that glides really far. Wristers from the blue line!

In fact, kids who can't lift the puck would love the things. I remember hockey as a young lad, and I don't think the puck ever left the ice. It'd certainly make it a little less boring to watch kids play or something.

Now to make the thing. I have no idea how you'd go about it. Don't really know if it'd work either. But ya never know.

Something like what tennis is using for challenges? I love it. It's instant and there's no debate. Something similar could be useful in football as well.

I'd like to see the hard plastic shells that are attached to shoulder and elbow pads removed. Not really an invention, but something that could help reduce concussions. Mandatory mouth guards wouldn't hurt, either.

Not really an invention, but I want to see a backhand slapshot. I don't know the logistics of it, really, but I bet Randy Jones would score on it if he tried it. It's probably work better if you used a stick with a curve for your opposite hand.

...eh

It'd make for a decent ASG shootout attempt, at least.

This however would take the uncertainty out of calls and make the game less fun.

I would pay soooo much money for that. Even more if it came in a midget version.
