Agree. It will not go unnoticed either. He has to address it if he can.

No wonder there are so many high-light reel goals. But is it better hockey?
You mean "interfere" with a player that doesn't have the puck? :lol:

That's always been a penalty, they're just calling it properly these days.

Leads to a faster more entertaining game. Definitely better brand of hockey IMO. Give the more talented players the room to showcase their skills.

For crying out loud, I meant the rushing player as BEING the puck carrier. What I suggest, is no penalty.

I think the "get in his face" line is whats confusing.

Do you mean he bumps him off the puck or gets his shoulders in front of the puck carrier and get body position? Cause I haven't seen a penalty called for that yet becasue it's within the rules.

Or do you mean he puts his hands in his face, or maybe his stick, or just 'gets up in his face' and yells at him to give him the puck? I dunno? Not very clear. Those should be penalties, the last one simply for being a moron.

The first paragraph. It is within the rules, although I wouldn't bet that calls wouldn't be made anyways.
The thing is, I feel it is becoming a lost art. It isn't easy to do.
Interfering with the rushing puck carrier from behind is always going to get called, unless it's a marvelous diving poke check.
Maybe with the new stick rules we might actually start seeing it done properly again.
Take some of the laziness out of the game.
