    PWHL Jailbreak rule

    I just read that the Professional Women's league has adopted a rule where if you score shorthanded, you "jailbreak" your player from the penalty box. I like it and think it adds a whole different dimension even if it wouldn't happen that often. Can swap momentum in a second.

    Thoughts on the rule?

    I'd have to think about it. I love forward thinking rules that make the game more fun. A also think a two point line (the blue line) should be considered (low percentage shot, but never 0.)

    Frankly, get rid of the instigator and allow players to police themselves again.

    So the team on the power play gets penalized for making a bad play...or giving up a great one...and not because they did something illegal?

    I dunno about that...

    I think a penalty should last the full alloted time regardless if a PP goal is scored. Do the crime, do the time.

    Minors used to have major penalty rules. 70s Canadiens made that rule a joke and the switched it to current rule

    How about if a team kills off a power play successfully they earn a man-advantage for the next two minutes?

    Considering most power plays go without scoring anyways, most of the game would be a possession based special teams mini game basically. You'd rarely see 5 on 5
