What is stupid about the rule is that you can't kick it in, but you can place your skate in a position to have the puck knock off of it and into the net.

In other words, you can kick it in but you can't REALLY kick it in.

Bob said they really need to take a look at that rule and either fix it or re-arrange the way it is explained because it has left so many people confused on the matter.
So it's okay to intentionally control the puck with your foot except if you move your leg a certain amount when doing so? What a dumb rule.
