Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller called the rule "the stupidest thing ever," but it appears that the NHL's powerful competition committee will lobby hard to keep the rule exactly as it is. "I would have to think it will be discussed this summer," said Nashville Predators GM David Poile, a member of the committee. "That was a tough rule to pass. But I voted for it and I like it. The idea is for the puck to be in play and instead of using the glass and the boards all the time, maybe you risk going up the middle of the ice." NHL director of hockey operations Colin Campbell, who oversees the committee as a non-voting member, said people should not forget that the effect of the delay of game rule has to be considered in concert with all the other radical changes the NHL made prior to this season to enhance offence. In fact, Campbell suggested the rule worked to perfection, pointing out that Brian Campbell was tired and under pressure and he was trying to clear the puck out of danger.more
