i hate punishing the guys who are true shot blockers but something has to be done to cut down the amount going on these days as its getting out of hand
Going all out to block shots in a tight playoff game is not a new phenomena, nor should it be restricted. If forwards and defensemen are willing to lay their bodies on the line and pay the price then so be it. That's kinda what made Gill-Scuderi so effective during the Cup runs - penalty killing and shot blocking.
