Anyway you get my point on the "clearing the crease" thing, it's a two step deal, goalie and defenseman.
Granted, you know more about this stuff as you play hockey. I'm just a bystander . However, would you agree that we are letting players set up in front of the net way to easily and way to often? or am I just being paranoid?
