nhl- Forget the CBA for a Moment

This is about the future of the game. I have serious doubts that the NHL will tweak this game so much to attract new fans to the game, that all of the tradition and elements of NHL hockey will be changed forever.
I would like to see the rule book called every minute of every game, get rid of the instigator penalty and make the goalie equipment smaller. All of the other changes that are being talked about are just too drastic and I fear the game will lose its roots.
As Damien Cox wrote a few days ago, the people in charge of examining the rules are the same people who said there was nothing wrong with the game two years ago.
