I still maintain that it's screening the goalie. If you are allowed to stand outside the crease in front of the goalie to block his view, you should be allowed to use any part of your body to do so. Either you can block the goaltender's view or not. What body is in the way doesn't matter.
Pronger just wanted "The Avery Rule" renamed for himself. End of story.
