What do you all call a good goal when you're trying to hit the post?

Seems to me that it's either one that hits any metal period, because if you play putting the net down instead, the object of that it to not hit the post at all, so why not the opposite.

Or, is it, if it goes in, even if it hits the pipe, it's not a good goal?

I know there's no official rule on this lol, but just seeing what other players do when there's no or only one goalie and you play full ice. I've played all over North America and it seems the 1st one, any metal is the verdict I've seen the most.

Wherever I've played it's always just been the two posts and the crossbar. However this is completely subjective. Sometimes we'll do pegs, others we'll flip the net up and shoot top corners. Surprisingly I've never done backbar or middle when playing with anyone.

Posts at the rink? It's just off the posts or crossbar but it has to be off the ice. Doesn't matter if it goes in after.

I always thought the whole idea was that if you could hear metal, it's a goal. Thus not having to stand around admiring shots when you ought to be playing.

We just call it "Playing posts", but we usually count the back & middle bars too at our rink because we still stay very intense. At that point, hitting just the crossbar & posts gets really tough I'd rather get shut out by a goalie than be limited to 4 post goals if we're playing posts. I'd much rather do that than play w/the nets down, too.

Playing with the net down (even though it takes more skill than one would think just to hit the net), isn't exactly the safest thing to do.
I've been at a few drop ins where lately, guys are saying side or front bar only. It's just easier to play, as long as you hear metal, it counts as there's less dispute with that as opposed to, example, it hit the side bar from behind the net.

That being said, the wood that's like a shooter tutor is better than trying to hit the post, but, often rinks don't want to pay the money since they don't last that long.

Side posts and crossbar only, no back bar.

But really who cares, it's pickup without a goalie. No one actually keeps score.
