Thanks for the personal attack.
My mistake was simple proof-reading, yours is the entire principle you are trying to prove. Ok, you're played in college and coached. If we're going for appeals to authority then I'm fine by that. I asked some guys I know at work or observed them as they played.
Div I (Boston U), USHL, (Omaha) player - "yeah, hit the ice 2 to 3 inches behind the puck. Even more is fine. Watch Brett Hull he was the king of using the stick to flex."
Div I (Cornell) BCJHL player - Yes.
Div I (Yale), EJHL (Apple Core) player - Yes.
Div III player, HS coach, Youth hockey director - "Absolutely hit the ice. Hitting the puck first you are more likely to flub the puck or tip it on it side causing it to flutter"
4-time Stanley Cup winner player, former NHL, IHL, coach - "For sure"
4 time Stanley Cup winnner - Yes
Div I (Bowling Green), USHL (Omaha/Green Bay), OPJHL (Syracuse) - "Yeah, that's basic."
Div I player (Cornell) - Yes.
SPHL player, Jr national champ coach (coached a bunch of 1st round picks, many OHLers, USHLers, Div players.) - Yes.
But you played in college and coached. Where? I'm not sure, but in addition to these examples I have PHYSICS on my side. That offers a pretty strong argument.
