The rulebook- Interference

Been watching hockey since the late 90's and I'm getting really confused.

Interference was as far as I recall a play when the puck is within 5 feet of an opposing player and you deliver a body check instead of playing the puck. That's how they called it originally. Now the refs call interference on plays which are nowhere near the puck.

getting mixed signals here

How close or far the puck is to the player is irrelevant. It's possession that matters. You can only "hit" a player who is in possession of the puck.

Interference is body contact that impedes a players ability to move around the ice if he doesn't have the puck.

Doesn't matter where the play is...

You just see it closer to the puck because there is more reason for body contact while fighting for the puck.

This is the confusion for millions.

You CANNOT hit a man without the Puck. The reason for Bodychecking is to separate a man from the puck and get possession of the biscuit for your team.

Scott Stevens built a fearsome reputation on CHARGING.

As I've stated, I actually and generally like Stevens as a Hockey Player; however, a good deal of his so-called "hits" were actually charges. He was a great bodychecker too, but he was one of the main reasons why leaving the feet (charging) became tolerated.
