    "Finish your check"

    Literally, that means hitting players even if they don't have the puck anymore. Which is the exact definition of interference.

    I agree except I think maybe 10-15 years instead of 25, because a hockey career / generation doesn't last 25 years.

    It would be huge if players removed “you know” from their vocabulary. For Sure.

    I agree, but I think the meaning of it has changed. It used to mean any player, at any skill level, who spent his whole career with one franchise. But now it means any super elite player.

    Really nothing wrong with Franchise or celle

    EA has little do with a term franchise player

    It means it's a guy you build around and sign long term. Figure it out

    Also celle is just slang for celebration . Get over it

    Whenever commentators use the term "real estate" to describe how certain hockey players manage to generate more space on the ice.

    Also, can we stop labeling human beings as "products"?

    Example: [hockey player's name]: a [university/college] product.

    I'd say 'hyperbole' is probably the most overused word in the entire sport.

    True but why can't it be plural

    They also probably use so and so or a team had whatever amount of offsides to save time talking so they can jam it in before play or a commercial starts.

    Asterisk - everyone is on a similar playing field and no one cheated. Let it go.

    Generational - these guys come around every 5-10 years at best. Not 2.

    People were spoiled by Gretzky, Lemieux, and Hasek all playing at once. Made then think generational talents were a routine occurrence. The math says, it may be 30-40 years before we see another true generational talent

    Some commentators use baffling terminology

    “Waffleboarding”— this is why I would’ve preferred Gary Thorne and Bill Clement since like forever

    “paddle” - when referring to a goalie’s stick

    This morning I went outsides to take out the trash. The bin is besides my shed. My wife stayed insides with my son.

    That's how ridiculous it sounds when someone says "that play was offsides"/ "he was offsides"

    I can't believe I just read 273 posts and my biggest pet peeve wasn't listed.

    COMPLEMENTARY

    It means that a player complements another player, and works well with them.

    COMPLIMENTARY

    It means that a player says a lot of nice things about other people, giving out compliments.

    There are literally hundreds of complimentary players out there according to HFers when in reality there's just Wayne Gretzky.

    Using your stance above "he is off on his sides" is weird. A player only has one side of the blue line they are called off-side on
