New NHL Rules for 2015 Season

Don't know if this was mentioned, but here are the ones proposed by the league:

1) Long change for OT

2) Zamboni after regulation

3) No shoot out lists. Pick as you go.

4) Bigger trapezoid

5) wider hashmarks

6) Divers will be punished on an escalated scale. Coaches too.

7) War Room can review everything if it's an illegal goal. Don't know about legal goals like after whistles etc

8) Puck-before-Skate on a trip is now a penalty.

9) only one center can take defensive icing faceoffs. Getting kicked out on purpose is DOG penalty.


It was in the THN Yearbook. Couldn't find the link. Looks like they want to make life harder on the slow, diving teams.

Rangers should win a lot of OT games with their speed.

Brodeur must be raging. The second he's (presumably) out of the league, they change the rules in favor of puck-handling goalies.

Puck-before-Skate on a trip is now a penalty.

^ dumb af

otherwise, pretty interesting/good potential changes.

I think the idea behind that is if they reduce the number of players who are tripped (whether legally or illegally), then you reduce the number of potential injuries. Plus, it may result in more quality scoring opportunities.

The NHLPA has to approve them but the committee who wrote them is a combination of execs and players.

The tripping penalty one is just flat out stupid. I bet Lemieux is the one crying in favor for that one.

What it does is deny the defenseman an opportunity to make a defensive play.

It's a good rule if the players don't dive. I bet every play like that will lead to guys diving, and the refs will rarely call it.

On the other hand the defenseman in addition to moving the pack away also removes the other team's player out of the play by virtue of a stick to his skates.

Long change for OT? To run a few extra commercials?

How does rule #9 is going to work? Seems to me it's going to be very subjective and a punishment is very severe if refs mistake a routine FO challenge for a DOG.

1. Fine
2. Seems unnecessary
3. Fine
4. Okay
5. Okay
6. Good in theory, but won't be applied equitably
7. Good
8. Dumb
9. Okay

9 is something the Rangers employed on every defensive icing faceoff. I saw it a lot around the league too. It was a nice little trick - but you had to know something like this was coming.

Don't like #1...not that most games go to OT, but implementing this makes the good end a little less good. I like having our guys attacking the goal on the 8th Ave end in the 1st, 3rd, and OT.

I don't mind puck-then-skate being a penalty. That has proved to be too difficult a call for referees to make in real-time.

1. Meh
2. I like the intention(s). Fresh ice makes for better hockey and more time for commercials is always good from a business pov. Still. That's a long ass break for five minutes of hockey.
3. Would rather it was "no shootouts", but okay.
4. Oh good. More chances for puck handling goalies to draw/create penalties.
5. Sure
6. All for it
7. Hope it goes both ways, but even if it's one sided, the more wrong calls you get out of the game, the better
8. That's dumb as *******. You should be able to make a play for the puck. If you get to the puck first, you're not the one who should be responsible for avoiding contact. Add exception for reckless plays, including full speed dives. (Edit: Poorly worded. Reckless plays should be punishable was what I meant)
9. They need to fix the faceoffs on icings so okay. They better be certain if they're going to call it, though.

More often than not is setting the bar pretty low. Considering these plays happen mostly on high leverage plays, I can understand wanting to make the call as simple as can be.

For a bang-bang play? No it's not. Frankly, I think I am underselling the accuracy of the officials on those calls.

Furthermore, the accuracy of the call is not even really the issue. The issue is the NHL trying to increase scoring.

Like it. Should create more chances to end the game in OT.

Meh. As long as they don't zamboni the ice again before the shootout then it's whatever.

3) No shoot out lists. Pick as you go.

Minor so I don't really care about it but good I guess.

4) Bigger trapezoid

EDIT - Bigger trapezoid = good. Goalies have more room to play the puck now. I'm an idiot.

5) wider hashmarks

Meh.

6) Divers will be punished on an escalated scale. Coaches too.

Like it.

7) War Room can review everything if it's an illegal goal. Don't know about legal goals like after whistles etc

They're covering their ass so another debacle like the Kings - Wings game doesn't happen again but they need to be clear about the rule. What determines an illegal goal? I'm fine if they want to check to see if it hits the netting but if we're incorporating blown calls (checking to see if a play was onside) then absolutely not. Slippery slope when you start reviewing more stuff. And where do we draw the line? What happens if a puck hits the netting but play continues for 5 minutes and then a goal is scored? Does the goal come back since? What happens if a puck hits the netting in the final minute and keeps the puck in the possession of the team on the offensive and they score the tying goal 20 seconds later?

8) Puck-before-Skate on a trip is now a penalty.

Don't like that at all.

9) only one center can take defensive icing faceoffs. Getting kicked out on purpose is DOG penalty.

Guess it'll cut down on the BS but you can't stop a player breaking his stick every now and then or Henrik's equipment failing right after an icing.

It was in the THN Yearbook. Couldn't find the link. Looks like they want to make life harder on the slow, diving teams.

Rangers should win a lot of OT games with their speed.
My thoughts in bold. Is the NHLPA supposed to vote on this before the season starts and will there be a trial run in the preseason before they fully implement it in the season?

I'm surprised they didn't ban fighting

That means we're toast unless we have Glass and McIlrath in the lineup. We have other big guys but they wear diapers and are useless when it comes to fighting.
