I'm against hooking and obstruction as a fan. But as a D who got crushed in the corner by much more massive players then me, i'm thinking: DON'T CALL IT.
My point was the single thing that would help is calling the rule book as written with the current rules in place. Leave it as is, but call the rules properly. The goalie ideas was kinda if a things were changed, this is what I would do.

I still think goalies should be able to stop the puck when its wrapped around the boards, its just when Broduer or Turco wonder into the corners and fire it right out. At least behind the net, they still have to get it high on the glass to get it by the forechecker.
