You actually want to give a dman a penalty for sliding to block a shot? An actual hockey play?
It depends on how its done Most of the time its not a hockey play or skilled at all. An actual shot block involves timing and smarts but all to often a player will just lay down on the ice to block a lane. When he uses his stick its 10' of ice being taken away by a player laying down like a dog. Its not some great defensive play.
