I've been doing tongue under the shinguard with socks over back and front since I was in middle school, before that it was always tongue out b/c that's all I knew. I first did the tongue in thing b/c it was the cool trendy thing to do at the time, I also found it was more comfortable for me and allowed me to wear a size bigger shinguard so have been doing it ever since.

That's definitely an interesting way, sort of a tongue out fake out. The pic of Forsberg looks like he has tingues under the shin guard and not the way you described; I'd imagine there would be a noticeable bump from the tongue under the sock but over the shinguard.

I've been wanting to try this for a while, I gave it a shot a while back and it never felt or looked right to me with the thick knit hockey socks and the large tendon guard on my old Graf 705's. I just picked up a new pair of One75's w/ a smaller tendon guard and have been wearing pro stock edge socks which are pretty thin so I think I may give this method another shot.
