While the NHL's clarification of a kicked-in goal may be flawed, it's helped the Flyers on at least one occasion, such as this no-goal on J.T. Miller in a 2-1 win over the Rangers on Oct. 24. (Photo Courtesy of nypost.com)
The NHL's GM meetings wrap up Wednesday in Boca Raton, Fla., bringing a new slate of proposed rule changes. While none of them gained much ground, it's still interesting to look at how the NHL could change if they do in the next several years.
5. Goalie fights: While these were not discussed at this week's meetings, but rather by GMs in November following the Ray Emery/Braden Holtby affair, goalie fights are still a hot-button topic. Suspensions ranging anywhere from three to 10 games for a goalie leaving his zone to fight were proposed -- similar to a player leaving his bench in a fight -- but nothing resulted at the time. Fighting amongst goalies doesn't occur nearly enough throughout the season to warrant that drastic of a rule.
