I've thought about it being offensive only, but you'd have this scenario. Let's say your guy is wrestling Nolf. Coach has him, at the whistle dive at Nolf's feet in period 1 and Nolf counters for a takedown. If we're only giving 3 for the initial offensive takedown, Nolf only scores 2 points. So after the release it's only a net gain of 1, which is back to what we have currently. It's got to be 3 for either the initial offensive or counter takedown unfortunately. An elite VanBrill would never score a 3 point takedown!😉Including when the first takedown is a counter score?
In which case we've already seen the last shot Lehigh and OKST take in a first period. No reason for them to take any risk whatsoever.
