Draw a box between the circles at the hash marks and have a stationary shot. Goalie can be standup or butterfly but must be completely in crease. 

 

BAM! Different and ridiculous. Your move NHL.

It still would be nice to have that one guy.

The one they should make illegal is the Patrick Kane "Come to a complete stop & stick handle for 2 minutes" move

 

THIS!

 

Better yet, get rid of the shootout all together!

As others have mentioned, that's inevitably what will happen when you create an artificial situation that decides games.  Players will push the boundaries as far as they can, so it's going to get into more hairsplitting with the rules.

 

Banning the spin-o-rama was a necessary step.  The players were coming to a complete stop, running into the goalie, and jamming the puck home.

 

I can't see them getting rid of the shootout anytime soon but a shot clock situation wouldn't be bad.  Or starting a player from the other team a certain distance behind to chase the shooter down.

That would be cool!

I'd be okay with 3 on 3.
I'd be even more okay with the shootout being gone entirely.

Bert becomes useless if this happens.

 

Good thing he's on board for only one more year.

Yay for Bert!

 

Sorry if this has been brought up already; I didn't see it anywhere.

That's a great idea, Harold. The trailing player, I mean.

 

I'd add that the trailer should be allowed to yell at the shooter and talk trash, maybe even throw things at him.

And just like that, Bert secures his roster spot :P

Bertuzzi could become the first player ever to get into the HHoF because of this move.
