How Many Too Many Men On The Ice Calls We We See This Week?

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

The GMs agreed that long line changes needed to be tightened up. Teams are cheating on changes seemingly more and more this season. So the league’s director of officiating, Terry Gregson, will send out a memo to teams and on-ice officials warning them that line changes will be closely scrutinized for the rest of the season, with the five-foot rule on line changes as per stated in the rulebook observed tightly.

Because of that, expect a number of too-many-men-on-the-ice penalties to be called over the next few weeks in order to drive home the point.

So we are worried about people skating on and off the ice but not all the clutching and grabbing going on?  Nice.  Way to set priorities.

  While I agree that the NHL has other problems, this is actually a much bigger issue than you seem to realize. I’ve been screaming at my TV about this for a couple of years now and I for one am glad they are FINALLY addressing it. I’m tired of odd man rushes created or broken up by thirty foot line changes.
