In Topic: Does Elias get traded?

He's been great.  If a deal comes, let him decide.  

But do not decide for him by 'not trying to make a deal'

I give the MVP to Bryce Salvador. His not playing was my favorite part of this season.

 

I'm now praying that LL does not re-sign our Captain....

In Topic: So now that 3-on-3 OT is happening, what about the format?

IMO, the OT/Shoot out are symptoms of the actual illness, which is that more than (IIRC) 60% of games end regulation in a tie.

This is why I think the 3-point system should be tried.

 

Also all sorts of other 'crazy' things...Like reducing goalie pads, blocker widths, stick widths.  Having a long change in the 1st & 2nd periods.  etc

 

Get more games to end in regulation, and the entire OT/SO thing is vastly dimished

They should just change the point system. Make regulation wins worth 3 points. Overtime worth 2. Shootout worth 1. That would change the way games are played. It would also separate the pack. There should be more emphasis on playing to win. You also wouldn't need the whole ROW to determine tiebreaks. 

 

Agreed 100%...but the NHL will likely not go this as because the lower points keeps the playoff races tighter & going al the way until the final week of the season.  Notwithstanding the Devils of the past few years !

My vote would be 5 minutes of 4 on 4, 5 minutes of 3 on 3. 10 minute period.  First whistle after 5:10 remaining you make the change.

 

 

How can you play effective hockey for 30 minutes on a sheet of ice ?

You can't.

 

You would have to at least do the dry-scrape before the 10 minute OT.
