since the IIHF is adopting NHL rules, maybe the NHL should do the same

    just watched the recent world championships where on the broadcast, i heard that the IIHF will adopt the NHL's trapezoid rule for the international game...probably for the olympics...

    watching the crucial game between canada and finland, i noticed that in OT you play three aside...since the IIHF is adopting several NHL rule points like the trapezoid, why not the NHL make three aside for OT in the playoffs...

    i know the purists won't like it, i think playing three aside will make OT game a lot quicker and so you don't have to watch 5 OT contest like last years bubble between the bolts/jackets...

    Multi-OT playoff games are great.

    OT in the playoffs is perfect the way it is. I want to watch 5 OT periods, hell some day I hope I get to see a live game break the record for longest game in NHL history, that would be awesome. This would be change for the sake of change, there is no problem here that needs to be remedied.

    the Trapezoid is the dumbest NHL rule in existence.

    Most of the time 3 on 3 overtime is awful. It’s like watching a soccer game where both teams are need to get at least one point. A lot of possession and very few shots.

    But I want to watch sudden death OT to go as long as it takes, not expedite it. 3 on 3 is basically a different sport anyhow.

    Maybe the NHL should focus on enforcing its own rules before implementing new ones

    What? 3 on 3 is more or less an exchange of high danger chances. Breakaways and odd man rushes back and forth.

    Maybe Oreos should stop making cookies with the cream in the middle too.

    Do you really want to live in a world with 3 on 3 overtimes and cream-less Oreos?

    Interminable playoff overtime is literally the single best thing about NHL hockey.

    Sometimes. Most of the time it’s one team trying to keep possession. Have you ever noticed how often teams leave the offensive zone with possession? It’s all about plying keepaway with the hopes that you’ll get a breakaway.

    There’s a reason way less games go shootouts now. It’s because 3 on 3 features more scoring chances.

    Yes, less games go to shootout…because teams play keepaway until they get a breakaway. You can argue all you want, but sit down and watch OT’s on YouTube and you’ll see what I am talking about.

    3 on 3 OT in any kind of a meaningful game is a disgrace.

    I watch them plenty throughout the season thanks. Exciting as hell. If your going argue there’s less scoring chances you don’t really have an argument.

    My bad, I didn’t realize that you were one of those people who come to a conclusion and nothing will deter you. Enjoy your closed minded world.

    NHL should start with calling penalties by the rulebook rather than considering new game formats.

    I don't recall a single Finnish fan happy with the 3v3 continuous OT, even in tournament play. For a final, it should be 5v5, just like the NHL does it.

    An improvement on the shootout.

    I like long Overtime playoff games. Going 3v3 for playoff overtime is a horrible idea.

    I will instantly and permanently stop watching hockey if they bring 3v3 OT to the playoffs.

    Hockey is the greatest game/sport in the history of mankind.

    Thinking outside the box humbly helped to make me the exceptionally successful person that I am in life.

    Knowing when to stick to basic fundamental principles humbly helped to make me the exceptionally successful person that I am in life.

    Cockamamie rule tinkering which leads to a further junkification of the game is a large component of my mindset in respect to the scam of 'growing the game'. Weak minded people would consider it selfish, I just want to enjoy life on a term that fits my lifestyle, just like almost everyone.

    That said, having open and free discussions about topics is perfectly fine no matter how silly some of them are.
