    That's where I'm at. Just give it another few years and a couple more blown out knees and backs and legs; it'll happen then.

    Exactly. I think the Hybrid Icing is even more dangerous than the old race to the puck because it's very confusing and players don't really know what is happening.

    I know we're not supposed to fully quote sources, but...

    I saw this in action at the Carolina game.
    My reading of the above is there are 3 scenarios:
    1. Clear icing case, no attacker on the icing team within close enough pursuit, icing whistled.
    2. Clear icing nullification case, attacker on the icing team is within close enough pursuit, icing waived off.
    3. Ambiguous case, must be determined by face off dots that icing is nullified, or else icing is called (the "tie goes to the runner" rule in baseball in this analogy).

    Anyone else read / see it differently??

    How does this contrast with the international icing rule? I know they blow the whistle sooner. Is there a scenario for icing nullification in international play?
