No-No? That's BS and I don't care how long Gary Roberts played. They are all good sound exercises.

Bench press is a great exercise. When I'm battling in the corners or in front of the net and I push someone on their arse that's the same weight as me it's at least in part due to the fact that I've built up some upper body size/strength from lifting over the past 18 years and bench press is a big part of that.

Might there be better hockey specific exercises? Maybe, but that depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Trying to gain upper body size and strength? There isn't a better exercise.
