Yes I do miss the hockey of the 80's.
With that in mind here are some rule changes that might bring back some excitement to the game. Comments welcome, please.
1. Get rid of that damn red line
2. Get rid of that instigator penalty.
3. Icing, if it crosses the goal line, blow the whistle. Why is there a need to touch the puck?
4. Bring back the "tag-up" rule for off-side
5.One Ref please
The skill and speed that the current day player possesses is muted by the trap and the dump and chase strategy of the current day coach.
It's easy to criticize, but the bigwigs of this great game need to have a long chat before they loose any more fans.
Oh, the much talked about(possible) strike of NHL players next year will surely bring back the fans.
Side note: What ever happened to the "Kid Lines" ?
