I was picking between Avery and the instigator. But I picked the instigator because it improves the game. since Avery would be gone anyway, so I voted for the instigator penalty rule.


Well, a vote for the instigator is a vote for Avery since, you know, he is an instigator.

Go ahead, boo me, I know that was bad. :evil:

1)The Shootout, because I hate when an exciting game goes to a skills competition.
2) The Brodeurezoid, I hate it, stop restricting Goaltenders.
3)Puck shot over the glass,delay of game.

The games are almost too long now, but I guess a 10 minute 4 on 4 would work for me. Get rid of the shootout.

Is the Instigator rule that big of a deal? Or is it not liked just because?


I would get rid of the trapezoid ( Not the trap! :P) Well, get rid of it when Marty gets back. Not sure I relish ( hmmm, relish) the thought of Clems out there in no man's land.

I did, man. I've been watching and playing hockey for thirty something years. Fighting is boring.

I'd also like to see a 3-2-1 point system.

I like this rule, its clear and a lot better then have refs trying to guess the intent of a player
