It's pretty much unanimous, we all want firewagon hockey brought back. And frankly, that's the only thing that will save the NHL, CBA or no. But how do you get firewagon hockey back? Simple. 1. Bring back the tag up offsides rule. 2. Eliminate the 2 line pass whistle. 3. Contract 9 teams. 4. Limit the size of goalie pads and ENFORCE the new rules. The first two put "flow" back into the game. #3 eliminates the pluggers from NHL rosters. There's no reason why we should ever see Jamie Allison, Dan Hinote or Jason Williams in an NHL game. #4 counteracts the heightened abilities of today's goaltenders. Goaltending has gotten better since the 80's, but not THAT much. A lot of it can be attributed to larger pads. 4 steps. Firewagon hockey. Bring it on!
