question about 2009-10 NHL and IIHF rules

Post by BlackTapeBandit » Wed Dec 24, 2008 8:09 am

Next season when the rules go into effect for all USA hockey and the leagues in Canada I have a few questions for the refs.
1. Are thighboards illegal, and will they need to be switched to thigh wraps?
2. Are full knee locks illegal? Must pads have a half knee lock?
3. Is the 38 inch rule in effect for the leg pads?
4. Finally, if all of these are in effect next year, will the be able to be questioned by an opposing team just like calling an illegal curve?[/list]
