I'm not advocating that fans stop paying attention. I'm advocating that the players pay more attention to what they are doing.
The rule is that a player must maintain control over his stick. If he's maintaining control, a professional player can control the altitude and the velocity of the shot. Will the puck still come out? Sure it will--because the shooter didn't maintain control--same as what is penalized now whether it's an errant shot or a strategic attempt to delay the game.
The comment was that having the rule in place led to fewer incidents of the puck coming out of the field of play. So make a few adjustments to the rules, with the knowledge that when the rules are broken someone might be hurt.
