Kukla's Korner Hockey

Not everybody likes the new rules designed to promote more scoring. Especially defensemen. Nicklas Lidstrom may be one of those who doesn't mind the changes. NHL fantasy league fans take note: Already one of the better scorers among defensemen, Lidstrom thinks the rules will help him rack up points even more this year. "They want me to try to join the rush a little more, get up in the play, especially with the new rules where you can get up in the play," Lidstrom said. "Nobody can hook you from behind to slow you down, so I think you'll see that a lot more." The changes in hooking and holding will make blueliners have to play better fundamentally, rather than physically - one of Lidstrom's best assets.
