There are some interesting things in here, but I'd like to see the league go to three points for a win, with no shootouts, and maybe no overtime, like soccer does. The last five minutes of a tie game would be a lot better if there were two points to be had by getting the win.

These are all (IMHO) pretty good ideas, except the tag-up offside rule which I don't quite understand. It's just a damn shame that the league's gonna be gone next season; I hope I'm wrong but this looks inevitable to me.

Damn that Triple H; damn him straight to Hell!

NO SHOOTOUTS !!!! and in case I wasn't clear enough - NO SHOOTOUTS !!!! I would rather see 65 minute tie than a shootout - it's like settling a baseball game with a HR Derby - I hate it......

I like the idea of bringing back tag-up offsides but don't like the automatic icing - true, it eliminates the one or two needless injuries that occur when a player slides into the boards at high speed whiling chasing an icing but it would take away from that offensive player that does hustle his ass down ice to get to the puck first

Hockey needs some changes but unfortunately it looks more and more like we will have at least a year and probably more to debate those changes......

I think they should shitcan the overtime loss rule ("You took FIVE MINUTES LONGER TO LOSE! Here's a point!"). Teams will try to win as much as they used to, so I think they should just go to 4-on-4 overtime for all the marbles.

FLAMES: 28-20-5-3 for 64 points
LAST YEAR: 32-35-12-3 for 79 points
PACE: 42-30-7-3 for 94 points

I agree with you Freeway, get rid of that annoying overtime lose one point rule. It's so stupid... And I really like the 3 point rule for a win, it really makes a giant different having 3 times the points for a win then a tie. That would make you go aggressive for the win if the game is tied. The current system the last minutes of the 3rd period you just play for the tie so you can get the guarantee point.

smark/net attack wienerville advisory is lowered to YELLOW alert - Elevated (Due to Lesner still being champ, Benoit winning the Rumble, but HHH as champ is still a threat) 1/27

Man, who's ahead of the curve yet again?

Me, that's who, in 2002, yeah hoo.

    I really don't like the "one point for making it to overtime" rule. It just don't seem right.

    At the same time, the old way of "we've made it to OT so let's just play for the tie" was in dire need of fixing.

    The solution? As with all of our problems -- look to Europe! The Futball way of getting rid of too many draws is to give THREE points for a win and ONE for a tie. A team who is 7-8-0 would have 21 points, while a team who is 5-5-5 would have 20 points.

    When you are in a playoff race, you had better go for the win, overtime or no. The teams you are racing with certainly will be. A team who settles for draws during the season would be hard-pressed to make the playoffs. Damn sensible, I say.

Don't know the reason, stayed here all season,

But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie,
How it got here I haven't a clue.

Hey, I've said it before and I'll say it again... Flames'll be #1 next year, guaranteed! That being said, I still can't freakin' believe that the Whalers might win the Cup. MIGHT. If they win tonight, they will.
