The economics of the game will preclude any significant changes. But I'll bang the drum again. For the pros - Olympic sized rinks. Reduced shoulder and elbow gear. Reduction in head injuries.

Minnegasco=Lets try 5 feet wider and 5 feet longer as that would be an easier sell to the owners and that would not effect the game all that much. Clearly your right Minnegasco, a 6 year old kid is playing on the same ice sheet as the pros are

Its true, a larger ice surface is better for a skating game. The goon types dont do well on a big rink, their poor skating is exposed, and they are a liability to be on the ice at all. True talent and skating skill shows on the big sheet. Doing this and promoting SPORTSMANSHIP in hockey will help cull injuries.. Play with Honor, Respect, and good sportmanship, or dont play at all... and most importantly protect the puck WITHOUT turning your back... dont put yourself in harms way...

If they can trade some chaff off of the current team to acquire some scoring, go for it. Do NOT trade prospects/draft picks for a rental. This team was overacheiving, they are lacking the talent to make a playoff run. Be patient and build this team from the ground up.

No checking from behind - absolutely none. Just like in the NFL with the blocks from behind. Only in hockey MUCH more damage can be done with these types of hits. A checking from behind should be a 5 minute major, additional/repeat offenders would draw the same game penalty plus levels of suspension - PLUS - if that team continues to play this player, additional offenses are player suspension and fine, team fines and penalty shot. Not that difficult to call by the officials and the players can absolutely prevent these hits......no real reason to stop right now. They obviously don't respect their fellow players.
