Red Wings Central Closing Down (completely) Nov. 7th

06 November 2014 - 07:05 PM

Back in September Matt (different Matt) said he was no longer doing articles and write-ups on prospects on Red Wings Central.  At the time he said that the forums would stay up, but a week ago he posted that they were being closed as well.  I didn't see anything posted here about it, HFboards had a farewell thread at the time.  I do have to say it was one of the better assesment sites for Wings prospects, especially the rankings.


Some of you may be familiar with the forums there, as it was pretty laid back...well since there was little to no moderation (so quite the opposite as here).  I would assume he's going to dedicate all his time to CapGeek (if you didn't know a Wings fan runs it) and everything will be pretty much frozen in time.  Just thought a post here wouldn't hurt as we are losing an exclusively Red Wings blog/news/forum site.

Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

12 July 2014 - 09:17 AM

Yesterday the American Hockey League annoced a few new rule changes.  I know the overtime and fighting (Yzerman suggested it last year) ones have been considered by the NHL as well.  This may be a test run in the AHL and could be something we'll see in the NHL for the future.


Rule 85 (“Overtime”)

  • During the regular season, the sudden-death overtime period will be seven minutes (7:00) in length, preceded by a “dry scrape” of the entire ice surface.
  • Teams will change ends at the start of overtime.
  • Full playing strength will be 4-on-4 until the first whistle following three minutes of play (4:00 remaining), at which time full strength will be reduced to 3-on-3 for the duration of the overtime period.
  • If the game is still tied following overtime, a winner will be determined by a three-player shootout.

Rule 20.4 (“Major Penalties”)

  • An automatic game misconduct will be applied to any player who has been assessed two major penalties for fighting or three major penalties for any infraction in the same game.

Rule 9.6 (“Helmets”)

  • A player on the ice whose helmet comes off during play will be assessed a minor penalty unless he immediately (a) exits the playing surface or (b) puts the helmet back on with the chin strap properly fastened.
