Unfortunately, the NHL needs a lot more than a spiffy new logo.

Fortunately, the new rule changes are a big start in that direction. I especially like the very long overdue offside pass rules. Now lets see how long they hold their resolve on zero tolerance for obstruction. There are going to have to be some serious fines given referees for failure to enforce before the obstruction rules make a difference. Especially during the playoffs.

Yeah. I'm all about the offside pass rule change. It was a very silly rule to begin with. I like the shootout, and I like (although I haven't read the specifics of it) that they're restricting the amount a goalie can play the puck. I'm not too sure about moving the nets. I know the point is to generate more offensive zone ice and to give skilled players more scoring chances, but I just don't know whether I like it or not.
I'm of the opinion that the refs will be vigilant in their "crackdown on obstruction" for about the first 20-25 games of the season. Same as always. I certainly hope that they're more serious about it, but time will tell.

I'm just glad that this whole ordeal is over and excited about the upcoming free agent market bonanza.
I have four words concerning that....
