Someday we're going to have to have a 0-0 24-round shootout or something similar in which the opposing goaltenders can take shots just to make this seem silly.

(Honestly, I completely agree. But that perverted scenario was what leapt to mind as soon as I read it, so... )

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
