How is anyone complaining about this? This is what the teams and players want. It is a protection issue as the video above shows the dangers of it.
It's a non issue as far as flow. Just different at first.
Agreed, I'm surprised to see people so up in arms about this. They were using it throughout preseason and it had no effect on the speed or flow of the game. I am a little concerned with how quickly the linesmen have to make the judgment call though, maybe no-touch icing would be better as long as they could wave it off when the forward is clearly going to be the first to the puck.
