If that puck hits me, it's the player's fault, not mine. If the shot is hard enough or anywhere near my head, that player is going to get an earful.
Yeah but not in instances where you just want to get the puck out in a hurry. At least twice last week the guy goes and rims the puck around the glass from behind the net and the ref is totally oblivious as to what is going on and it just hits him out near the blueline.
