Hockey Night in Canada

Skip over all the analysis if you want and go to the end of the video where Don talks about no-touch icing. Lilja slaming into the board is in there too.

It's almost hard to watch, I never really realized how brutal just chasing a puck can be.

As weird and crochety as he can be, there's no denying he knows hockey. I like his idea about the puck-over-the-glass rule too, instead of a penalty they treat it like an icing: The offending team can't change and has to take a faceoff in their own end.

If it does damage to Lilja, I'm all for it.

Joke!!!

Nah, seriously--I don't think we can part with touch-icing without seriously altering the game. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it reduces injuries and speeds up the game,lets do it.

i think there should be no-touch icing.

like don cherry said, careers have ended from some of those types of hits.

crazy.

Eh doesn't bother me either way. Of course you'd like no touch icing for obvious reasons due to injuries, but then again I see nothing wrong with the way it is now. Mainly because I like the hustle to get an icing or negate it. I'm always "ICE IT...ICE IT!!" haha makes it more exciting..

It should be under the ref's discretion. If the ref feels he should blow the whistle, then blow it. However, if a ref feels that the one of the teams chasing it needs the icing, or doesn't want the icing, then they should battle it out. Again, under the ref's discretion.

Ref's discretion? That's just asking for trouble my friend.

Plus, that would still lead to teams chasing after the puck because they don't know if the ref will whistle the play dead.

i never really gave too much thought to icing until coach's corner the other night. i guess i never reallized how crazy touch icing is. essentially it forces two guys to skate as hard as they can into a wall. i'd be in favor of no touch.

I saw this segment the other night. These are absolutely brutal!

I'm all for no-touch icing; there are enough ways already for a player to get hurt legitimately. Forcing the players to touch (on the icing) adds nothing to the game 99.9% of the time. It's crazy that this rule hasn't been implemented already.

They deffantly need to change this rule without question.. If it can save someone's career then there would be no reason to not do it.. I hate to see injuries that way :crazy:

The point being that it IS broke and we should probably fix it.

And how is it going to "seriously alter the game" as you say?

I agree. This has become pointless...people screwing up their careers for something like icing? Come on...I thought they at least wanted to pretend to improve the rules.... :rolleyes:

I also liked Don's comment about the buffalo/ottawa brawl..."Gary, if you're watching this....notice how much excitement this caused?" Or something like that....haha. As if Bettman even watches hockey....
