Yea exactly, as someone mentioned in the main board thread that was a rule that was developed because of Patrick Roy.

He would edge himself out of the crease to play the puck while Icing was STILL being called regardless to slow up the offensive player.

So they changed the rule so that ANY motion made by the goaltender to attempt to come out to play the puck would have the icing waived off.

They were going to call icing until Quick went to play the puck.
