    Nope, it means to not turn away if you're within the ~sticklength of the player that makes it not interference. But to do so almost always means committing to the check, and committing to the check while being able to close the gap without exposing your lane makes someone a damn effective forechecker

    True. Should just be best athlete. Very redundant.

    Thorne and Clement were great together. My favorite announcing duo.
    Emrick always said waffle board, maybe even came up with it. Old school blockers all had the “dots” on them like Driedger’s retro set. Kind of, sort of, looked like a waffle. The paddle of the goalie’s stick, the wide part resembles a paddle for a canoe.

    Wondering how you feel offsides is "more technically correct"?
    A player is whistled for an off-side play, singular. A player skates past one blue line for an off-side, again singular. NHL rule 83.1 lists it as off-side, no plural

    I think the trend that celly is born from is unfortunately spreading. When I worked in a shop tendy, chesty, warmies, praccy, and conky all started popping up. Between that and adding -sy to everyone’s last name, hockey players are starting to sound like toddlers.


    I can rationalize both offside and with the -s, but I think the singular is more correct.

    Yes please to no more Celly and Generational. And any cheddar references as well.

    Also "keep your head up" in response to an obviously illegal hit. It shows up so often in those threads you'd think people were using it sarcastically but they usually aren't.

    That's a very fancy way to describe interference.

    KK for Kotkaniemi makes absolutely no sense. His initials are JK, ”Kotka” literally means ”Eagle” so makes absolutely no sense to shorten it as KK either. There are multiple actual KK’s in the league so it’s not just stupid but also confusing.

    Like these current players all come in my mind before Kotkaniemi when talking about KK :

    Kirill Kaprizov
    Kaapo Kakko
    Kaapo Kähkönen
    Kasperi Kapanen
    Kasimir Kaskisuo
    Keith Kinkaid
    Keegan Kolesar
    Karson Kuhlman

    And then we decide to call someone named Jesperi Kotkaniemi KK? That’s absolutely terrible.

    The word "discomfort" is used far too often by announcers during play.

    "Looks like he's in some discomfort."

    "That will cause some discomfort."

    I think of like, a lumpy bed when I think of discomfort.

    Discomfort is when you've got a piece of leftover steak stuck between your teeth and you have no floss or toothpick around.

    I had discomfort when I was on a plane for awhile and all of the bathrooms were occupied by like an hour.

    He just took a puck to the 'nads. He's in -pain-.

    The hate towards Celly here is eye-opening. I guarantee your favourite player today has used that word in the last week. All your favourite athletes are "bros" except in front of the camera.

    So your issue isn't with the term "finishing your check," it's with the rules of the game.

    Is it just terms at this place?

    I once got into a heated debate/argument where a poster here said he was qualified to GM a real NHl team because he won three cups in NHL2K.

    "For sure" is another one.

    I still love this response by Erik Karlsson because the journalist was expecting the usual platitude agreement answer.

    But there are two sides to the line man, so you are off on your sides. Because the puck carrier also factors in, so it’s plural, it’s collective, it’s a team sport. Offsides as in you two were in sides off from one another, therefore whistle.

    This is the hill I die on.

    And I would prefer silence to verbal filler.
