The goaltending rule is nonsense. If I read it right, when the ball hits the glass first and a player pins it, it will be legal now correct?

And I hate the rule anyway. Shooters bounces will be no more. Scoring will go way down.

The flopping rule I fully support. Its very easy to tell the blatant flopping apart from regular charges. One season of fines and suspensions will stop the flopping altogether and make players play more straight up and try to make plays on the ball and rotate quicker to the spot instead of just throwing themselves infront of the ball and then throwing themselves back. I hope they penalize the offensive floppers just as much though obviously as it's often worse than the defensive flopping.
