What I mean is that the defensemen will throw it along the boards so hard that the puck will either a) go over my stick or b) I cannot reach the boards in time.
Slow, easy pass allows the defenseman more time to pin the forward. Stopping the hard pass gives you time to avoid the possible pinching defenseman. You miss the pass and it goes down the ice, out of the zone relieving pressure. No harm yet the pressure is off defensively.
