Much Needed Rule Changes
HERE ARE SOME RULES THAT NEED TO CHANGE
KNOCKING A PUCK DOWN WITH A HIGH STICK
Who gives a shit HOW you knock down a puck? I understand… player safety… but its a hockey players’ natural instinct to get the puck anyway. What player have you ever seen doesn’t try to knock down the puck with a high stick. All it does is stop the flow of a game.
NO GOAL BECAUSE OF A HIGH STICK
Again, who cares how the puck goes in, as long as it goes in the net. Can you explain to me WHY this is illegal?
KICKING THE PUCK INTO THE NET
Again, WHY NOT? If it goes in the net, who CARES how it got there (other than throwing it in). If a player blatantly re-directs a puck into the net with his HIP, are they going to waive it off? NO! So why not kick the damn thing in!
REFS SHOULD HAVE INSTANT REPLAY
Why are they always going to Toronto and letting Mike Murphy and his team decide the outcome? In Baseball, the umpires huddle, then they go watch a reply on TV, then they come back out and change the call. In football, the refs huddle to the sideline, stick their heads underneath a black thing, and come back and say, “upon further review…” Let the hockey refs fix the call, not Toronto!!!
Why not? Wouldn’t it be so much more fun to have a breakaway if there WERE hand passes? Dought swatting the shit out of the puck for a Carter breakaway? This rule sucks and all it does is slow down the play.
Forget hybrid icing. You want to cure icing? Simple. Just like fouls in basketball. You ice the puck 4 times a period, you get a penalty, it’s that simple!!!
