I'm surprised that yellow snow doesn't build up in the goal.

Sorry. Don't agree with this rule. You're out of the crease, you're fair game.


Then you'll have to get the NHL to change the rules.  Cause that is the rule.

In return, Goalies cannot cover the puck outside the crease (unless it's on a shot) and they get a delay of game penalty if they touch the puck on the other side of the red line (to prevent them from carrying it all the way up, since they can't be bodied off)

mootmah: HE'S OUT OF THE FARKING CREASE

By previous rulings by the NHL, it doesn't matter *where* the goalie is, it's still interference if you make contact.


So banging Jessie Vetter gets me a two-minute minor.

And?  Goalie interference is in effect anywhere on the ice, not just the crease.  You cannot hit the goalie ANYWHERE.

Then get rid of the crease.


The crease exists for several reasons:
   1. It has a bearing on where the goalies can freely freeze the puck without getting a delay of game penalty (not the only case, but one of them)
   2. They have all rights to any movement in the crease (meaning if you are in there first and they bump you, it can be a penalty or a disallowed goal)
   3. It signifies where defensive players who are not the goalie cannot cover the puck with their body
   4. It signifies where defensive players who get a "closing the hand on the puck" penalty give up a penalty shot rather than a 2min minor

Sorry. Don't agree with this rule. You're out of the crease, you're fair game.

I don't think a lot of people agree with it.  I don't.  That said, it's still the rule, so getting pissy when it gets called seems "not right", somehow.


I don't agree with it, either, but a certain distance outside the paint I *could* live with (say, five feet), and behind the net to clear pucks. Outside of that? You become a skater, no different than a winger, centerman, or defenseman.

It's a safety issue.  Goalie pads, though great for absorbing a small object moving very fast, do NOT offer much protection or movement from a hit.  You let goalies get hit, you will see lots of torn ACLs, doslocated/torn shoulders and such.  Their leg pads also prevent them from bracing themselves properly and their skates aren't made to turn sharply to meet hits properly.

It's a bad idea.  The real solution is "Dont put yourself in a position where you might hit the goalie"

/Spent his entire hockey life (25+ years) setting up camp in front of the net.  2 Goalie interference penalties in my life.
//Both cause I was being checked on the way in.
///Still my responsibility to not put myself in a position where I might hit the goalie

What they should do is make it reciprocal.  The goalie cannot initial contact (outside the crease) either.  Goalies checking is rare (see Tim Thomas a few cup runs back), but it would also cut down on that stick slashing and groin hooking.
