2. More penalty shots on plays that are breakaway or near-breakaway plays. If Jussi Jokinen steals the puck at his own blue line and somebody hooks him at the red line. Give him a penalty shot. Don't make him get all the way to the opposing blue line to make it a shot.
3. If you commit a penalty in the last 2 minutes of regulation or overtime, the game continues until the penalty time runs out. Give the team their full two minutes of PP time. I think that this should apply only if the penalized team is either winning or the game is tied. If you were losing, you shouldn't be able to just continuously commit penalties to attempt to make the game last longer till you get a short-handed goal (which could take forever).
4. If a goalie commits a penalty, make him serve it. If Steve Mason slashes somebody and the ref gives him a minor, take Mason off the ice for 2 minutes. Allow the Jackets to bring in Mathieu Garon, and take a skater off the ice. When the penalty time runs out, the skater can come out and finish the play till the whistle. Then at the whistle, Mason can come back into the game.
5. Don't allow the short-handed team to ice the puck. This would increase power-play goals and decrease all the obstruction because teams will be more afraid of being short-handed.
