An NHL and Hockey Hall of Fame legend spoke out recently about a change in the rules that he’d like to see.

 

Bobby Orr wants the League to bring back the 2-line offside violation, he told the Toronto Sun.

 

Orr believes that it would make the game a little more challenging:

 

“You can pass from your zone all the way to the other line, deflect it in, go get it and shoot it out. Back and forth. If you have to carry that puck out of your end and make a pass, skate with it, it makes it different.”

He also believes that it would prevent injuries, although scoring might be diminished as a result of the reintegration of the rule that was eliminated during the 2004-2005 lockout.
