"If a player drops or lags during the first period, the team of the dropped player, is allowed to call for a remake (completely remake the game) so long as it is still in the first period"

Complete remake does not sound implied to me, I think something should be added to clarify that the existing score will remain the same.

Exactly. Clarification is needed. As is, this rule has every GM/capt deciding on whether a player is going to "dc" in the last 10sec of the first period.

Also, ooter the reason I didn't use your rule is because you take up 2 pages of text with that rule, rules should be simple and easy to explain and convey anything over a sentice or 2 is too long.
That's true, it was pretty long. To be fair though, a lot of its length was examples and explanations, as well as me arguing the case for my proposal. It would be shorter in 'rule form'. Even removing the explanations and examples, you are right that it would be long. That's necessary to avoid problems though. My rule addresses the three important criteria.

1) Preserving game score with an exception for early lag.
2) Proper rounding of period times.
3) MOST IMPORTANTLY, it addresses how disputes should be resolved. That's the longest part, but also the most important.

It's as long as it needs to be to accomplish that. If you want rock solid rules that will prevent disputes and confusion, use my proposals.

I think that if a player rq's or leaves the league there should be a penalty for them
1 They do not get any skin would be awarded to them.
2 Can Not play I the next season.

I agree that this has a negative impact on ZHL, but how would it be enforced? Couldn't a player just "not be able to make it" to the rest of the games?

The penalty is implicit already - if someone quits the league:

1. They aren't playing
2. They're less likely to play next season because owners will have a more difficult time trusting them
3. They won't get their salary (whenever salary actually means something..)
