    It works like this -- once you have gained the blueline, it "disappears", and you get the entire area from the redline in to work. Once the puck goes past the redline, the blueline reappears, and you have to gain it again in order to make it disappear. It has the effect of expanding the attacking zone, while making sure you don't have floaters all game. They use it extensively in men's ball hockey...

    Wouldn't it make it impossible for wingers on defence to cover the points? A good D man could just hang out at the red line, then sprint in for a one-timer.

    But wait...that would be fun to watch. Let's do it, yeeee-hay!

    Maybe the blue line is controlled by the goalie, and if he see's a possible break out play, he can move it up, fooling the offence.

    Sounds too much like basketball to me. I'd be worried there would be too much puck-posession time and not enough counter-attacking.
