Obviously you're not going to skate all the way to the red line. If you're between the blueline and the hash marks and take a few steps back before curling around, you'll be fine. It's called doing a tight turn. Nobody in their right mind is going to loop behind the net.
If skating into a defenseman ready to lay you out or throwing the puck onto the opponent's stick is the only alternative, there's nothing wrong with it. I did it a lot back when I played competitive as a teenager and I never once got ripped on for it.
