Spring Break! Woo! The NHL general managers are spending March break in Florida and they've dug up some treasure on the beaches of Boca Raton. First on the docket is a change in Overtime, changing to a format similar to the AHL's 4-on-4 for three minutes, then 3-on-3 for four minutes, then a shootout formula. Am I the only one that's bugged that the length doesn't match the amount of players? Another suggestion was to go straight to five minutes of 3-on-3 then a shootout.
I prefer the first option, since it gives us an extra two minutes of hockey, and I like watching 3 on 3, it's fast and exciting. My only experience with it is at the IceDogs Family Day skills competition, but from what I've seen it doesn't slow down nearly as much as 5-on-5 can. I'm sure the NHL will find a way though.
Who would the Leafs put on the ice for 3-on-3?
Phil Kessel - Nazem Kadri
I like Phil Kessel.
Who would you put out there?
"Just based on the group we had, a smaller group, we did feel that made some sense, That has to go to a bigger group and have more of an open discussion about it. I think we're at the point where that's something we’d recommend."
