    Random question out of curiosity. For me it would be to let there be more physicality. Within reason of course but I find penalty’s are so inconsistent and harsh. Pretty much completely agree with what Torts had to say

    I would change Tom Wilson from being a current player to a former player.

    Obviously the play-off format; the best two teams should play in the Stanley Cup final even if they are next door neighbours instead of the east-west showdown.

    Shorten the season.

    Realize this could be blasphemous. I love hockey, miss it during the summer and I anticipate it starting every fall. However hockey shouldn't be played in June.

    Give cap relief to teams for players they've drafted or traded for. Having a cap on signing free agents is fair enough, but teams should be able to keep their players together. It shouldn't be at the point where fans are more concerned with an impending cap crunch than actually enjoying their team

    Throw all 31 teams into the draft lottery but give terrible chances to the playoff teams. The cup winner has like 0.01% chance and build from there.

    Shorten the season, force the less financially stable teams to fold or relocate, force teams away from using the Edmonton rebuild method (limiting the top 5 picks you can get)

    I agree with this as well. It's very often not on purpose and needn't be a penalty.

    Agree with the emboldened bit. There's too many games, and they kinda lose their importance. Lose a game? meh, we'll win the next one. Each game should be super super important and carry a lot of weight in terms of the season as a whole.

    Couple small changes:

    Actually give penalties to players / goalies who knock the net off accidentally on purpose.

    Don't let teams delay so long after an icing.

    In the play-offs instead of 2-2-1-1-1 I would change it to 1-2-2-1-1 so that a much stronger team can finish off the series at home if they win 4-0.

    Not very important but a suggestion nevertheless.

    They play hockey outside of the NHL in the summer months.
