Would you remove the trapezoid where there is designated: DO NOT PLAY AREAS for netminders towards the corners?

No, that set up makes for more drama when people are crashing into the ends to get the puck; the goalie is limited on what he can do. and it likely protects the goalie who might be considered fair game if way over in the corner playing the puck like a D or F.

What I WOULD do is make the blue ice in front of the net the goalies, when it comes to icing calls. Because we are the only ones who have not shrunk the blue ice (even the NCAA has), I would make it the goalie's responsibility to play the puck if it goes through the blue ice. No icing call if the puck goes through those blue corners sticking out on either side of the net. Speed up the game; make the goalie play the puck, and make decisions.

i dont see what the trapezoid accomplishes. The odd time it creates a powerplay but rarely do you see the puck end up in a spot the goalie cant play it. I just find it a pointless rule that accomplishes nothing. Take it out and the quicker goalies could catch teams on line changes.

What I would do is paint the trapezoid Blue. Make it an extention of the crease. Allow the goalie to play the puck anywher eon the ice. In the blue paint he cannot be touched, anywhere else he's fair game

Otto I can't see this happening. You could guarantee that if it were legal for a goalie to get run, players would plow them every chance they get. And legal or not you know that if a goalie gets hit, it will draw a crowd.

saw on TV speculation that the OHL may eliminate the trapezoid by January 1st 2013 as it seems to be on the way out in the NHL.
