Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Daryl Reaugh of Razor With An Edge,
If this radical change were to be implemented me thinks the impact on the game would be both positive and profound.
—Reduction of shot blocking, which has replaced ‘obstruction’ as the games’ worst enemy
—More man on man play, less zone
—Neutral zone would become a speed zone, driving the pace of games.
—Goaltenders would have to make more saves rather than just block area. And puck moving goaltenders would be absolute necessities.
—Defensemen would be involved in attack more
—Powerplays would return to scoring ‘skill goals’ instead of the current ratio of 15% skill, 85% ‘ugly’ or accidental goals
