    Sorry, no. That's been discouraged since before the Burr-Hamilton one.

    I don't even think it's that... Because that's died down somewhat... I think it's just trying too hard to be liked

    just another advantage that will go to the Top tier teams with Bluechip forwards. You get a smaller school who busts
    it but blocking shot and the goalie has a great game and then lose in the 3 on 3 because the other team has the Eichel type
    players and you dont.

    For the price we pay now for games just play 20min sud death 5 on 5 and then call it a tie. Why is everyone in such a rush to get home.

    Overtime has existed from the start. Maybe we should go back to full overtime periods like they had back then, none of this sudden death crap.

    Actually the point value will be awarded based on the play-by-play call. Any goal for which the announcer states "The netminder really needs to make that save..." or "Oh boy, the goalie is going to want that one back..." will be a one-point goal. All others will count as two. Different scoring for goals from beyond the blue line will be unnecessary as they will likely fall under the criteria of the one-point goal as outlined above...

    Will they go by the goal scorer's team's PBP call or the goalie's team's PBP call?

    That was exactly what I was thinking about, well that and the fact that the NHL is run by an NBA cast-off.

    Will never understand the need for special entertainment between period on the ice. Need to do chuck a puck for funds ok. tricycle races....not so much

    Rather than give-aways for fans upon entering games we'll soon have to hand out attendance trophies to all fans as they leave the game so everyone can leave feeling like a winner since apparently no one can live with a tie any more...

    Any of our RPI experts have an idea how they will do this? Honestly this seems bigger than switching to 4 v 4 OT to me.
    Probably the same way they do IIHF.

    To paraphrase a couple of points WeAreNDHockey made (see Post #25), the number of players on the ice is not and never has been a contributing reason for the decrease in scoring. Outrageously oversized goalie equipment and the mindset of playing to not be scored on (instead of to score) are the real reasons why we're having this discussion in the first place.

    WRT the former, the NHL and primary governing bodies (USA Hockey, Hockey Canada, and the impotent IIHF) all turned a blind eye while goalie equipment was being pumped up, all of them blithely changing their rules to accommodate the manufacturers. Anybody besides me want to believe that $$$$ changed hands while this was going on?

    WRT to the latter, playing to not be scored on is a prime example of what I call the soccer-ization of ice hockey. I'll probably get hate mail for this but despite my best efforts to come to appreciate soccer, it bores me to tears. Except for relatively rare bursts of energy, soccer strikes me just a bunch of people standing around playing keep-away and watching the clock run. Hockey coaches seem to have picked up on that and the result is endless dump-and-chase-and-wait-for-a-break and its defensive counterpart, the neutral zone trap.

    So let soccer be soccer, and if it likes that style of play and thinks penalty kicks are the way to decide matches, then so be it. But let's get hockey back to being hockey. And if one team isn't better than the other on a given night, then, also, so be it. The only fair and equitable outcome is a tie on the scoreboard and a standings point for each team, not gimmick-laden OTs and [barf] shootouts.
    Not only is soccer boring to watch, but the constant flopping in men's soccer is repugnant and sickening.
