I'm a noob, but that defenseman guide to pinching was pretty vague.

My advice I give to other noobs is this:
If we have the puck in their zone and you have D support, you should pinch/move/give&go to the net.
If it's a loose puck and you can beat the other team to it, you should pinch.
If they have the puck and are stationary, and you have D support, you MAY pressure.
If you don't have D support in any situation (he already pinched, line change, etc), don't pinch.
If they have the puck and speed... never pinch.

Most beginner D think "holding the blue line" means standing still and trying to poke-check their best player as he flies by.
