- Lindsay Berra
In the December 27, 2010 issue of ESPN The Magazine -- the 'New Year, New Rules' issue -- we proposed some changes to the world of hockey.
Then, we tracked down six NHL players -- New York Rangers RW Ryan Callahan, Boston Bruins D Zdeno Chara, New Jersey Devils wingers Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrik Elias, Los Angeles Kings D Drew Doughty and Washington Capitals D Karl Alzner -- and one NHL coach (Claude Julien) and bounced the new rules off them.
The rundown follows. We asked them about no-touch icing, a larger ice surface and mandatory suspensions for fighting.
Lindsay Berra talks to six NHL stars, including Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrik Elias, and one coach (Claude Julien) about potential new NHL rules proposed in the December 27, 2010 issue of ESPN The Magazine: a larger ice surface, mandatory suspensions for fighting, and no-touch icing. The players are very candid.
