Potential NHL Rule Tweaks: Which One Makes You Cringe The Most?

Reporter: "Hey Lou what are your thoughts about the trapezoid possibly being eliminated?" Lou: "SWEEEEEET! I love playing the puck!" Fans: *facepalm*

On August 17 and 18 prospects eligible for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft will play a game in Etobicoke Ontario as a part of the 2nd annual NHL Research, Development and Orientation Camp. New rule proposals will be tested at this event and there are a whole lot of them. After the jump are links to the list of proposed changes plus a poll on which of the most intriguing ones make/may not make you want to slaughter something innocent and beautiful. Yeah I know this camp is old news but I don't think we've discussed it much here.

First of all...I like many of the ideas and think the tweaked OT rule is the best one and I think many would agree, hence the poll for the worst idea. Yes that one is still debatable I'm sure so I'll include it in the poll.

Secondly, here is the complete list of tweaks and schedule for the Camp.

Thirdly, I think James Mirtle of The Globe And Mail picked a fine list of the most impacting tweaks and I want to present the majority of them in a poll plus a few of my own, so you can not only gain further knowledge of what is being presented if you didn't click the first link above, but also vote for the worst idea. Check out the links and educate yourself before voting. Some of these proposed changes can and will affect your Vancouver Canucks for better or worse some day in the near future. Voice any further opinions in the comments section.

PS: I really think the size of goaltender equipment should be further evaluated. All these ideas for more offence out there and the easiest solution in my opinion is to further decrease the size of goalie gear. Don't tell the goalies that though.
