I guess the tag-up offsides rule makes sense to keep applying on up as most of the kids have always played that way at this point. It does encourage players to handle the puck more rather than just dump it into the zone.

I guess I understand taking away icing the puck shorthanded… as why would you make it easier to kill off a penalty… but I don’t know if that’s ever going to be called at the higher levels of hockey that way, so it’s a tough one for me. Definitely promotes players to play with more skill though.

I like faceoffs for power plays always starting in the offensive zone.

I just hope that the major/game rules don’t change the way games are called. I’ve seen possible majors called as minors just to avoid the harshness of the penalty.
