Start Your Own League and Fix the Rules ESPN Hockey Polls
Want to start the NHL from scratch? How would you organize it? - Start Your Own Hockey League
Let’s say they were actually playing this game - Fix the rules
Currently only three rules changes have over 50% approval, here are the top five:
69.9% Restrict size of goalie pads
63.4% Use tag-up offsides
57.1% Eliminate the instigator rule
49.5% Olympic size ice (100 x200)
45.8% Use automatic icing
The only one I didn’t vote for was the Olympic size ice, but I can’t say I’d have any major objection to it. Eliminating the instigator’s counterpart, ban fighting, only has 7.5% of the vote.
Here’s an interesting part of the vote:
7.0% Reduce roster size
4.5% Reduce the size of the roster
Are they the same? Is one supposed to be number dressed on-ice, the other the complete off-ice roster? Who knows, but I find it odd they’re that off from each other and I wonder how many voted for just one.
