This week GM’s meet in Florida to discuss rule changes for the upcoming year. Hybrid Icing is one, as is removing the trapezoid which does nothing positive for the game. However my favorite is the possible reinstatement of the Two Line Pass. Old time fans will love this rule because it makes the game more about skill and less about speed. The NHL can continue to make fans with low scoring games if the hitting comes back, and with this rule hitting will be back but it will be safer hitting. Slow down the game, slow down the hits but increase them at the same time. Win, Win situation here.
