Should the NHL have no-touch icing?
Thu, March 20, 2008

Minnesota defenceman Kurtis Foster's broken left leg is the latest gruesome reminder of the dangers of touch-up icing in the NHL.

Foster will miss the rest of the season, including the playoffs, after crashing hard into the boards March 19th, during a race to the puck with San Jose rookie Torrey Mitchell.

Foster had surgery Thursday to repair a displaced fracture in his femur, and a stabilizing rod was put into his leg. Full story

Should the NHL do like almost all other hockey leagues and introduce no-touch icing?

The dumbest rule in professional hockey. Only an idiot would argue for the retention of touch icing. I'm a traditionalist, but this stupid relic should have been "iced" 20 years ago.

Absolutely! Who cares about touch-up icing? It's hardly a spetacle people want to see. And fans definitely don't want to see injuries on a useless and archaic rule that was made when players were smaller and slower.
