When the royal mess is all over, there just may be some changes to the NHL. whether these changes will be good for the game or not remain to be seen (hopefully). Hockey purists will resist the change, but the new breed of fans will embrace the potentially higher scores and lack of the dreaded tie.

When the NHL finally returns to the ice, the tie game will probably be a thing of the past.

"If they don't have a shootout, I'll be shocked," New York Islanders general manager Mike Milbury said Tuesday. "That's an easy one.

"The fans want it, and it's the least we can do after spitting at them for the last 12 months."

Fans in the AHL and other minor leagues have grown to enjoy shootouts. The NHL seems ready to implement the system that would eliminate tie games.
