No Surprises in NHL Rule Changes

NHL commisioner Gary Bettman has announced the new rules changes for the 2005/2006 season. There are no surprises from the previously reported rule changes.

So get ready for no red line, shootouts and smaller goalie equipment.

Time will tell if these changes are for the good of the game. Although I don't like the removal of the red line or shootouts, I'm willing to give them a chance.

I'll have more thoughts on the new rules at a later date.


The NHL has released more details about the new rules on their website, including diagrams of the new rink dimensions and the goaltender "trap zone"(a stupid idea by the way).
