New indoor rules: What will be the new layout/formation?

G'day guys. I just read the new rules for indoor hockey and I am wondering what peoples thoughts are on the reduction to 5 players. Will the norm become playing with only one forward, or no center, or only one back? It seems this will now make the game more dynamic, teams will have to adapt on the run and change their strategies for pressing and for beating the press. A great center (or three) will become like gold. Cheers

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
