And a third one said that as long as a portion of the skate blade is on the ice at all times, that's a good goal as well.

In my opinion this should be the new rule. Anything goes is dangerous and anything kicked outside of the crease still presents safety problems.

I like the idea that they would allow kicked goals as long as the part of the skate blade is touching the ice. That seems like a good balance between goalie safety and increased scoring.

And less confusing/enraging reviews.

I couldn't agree with you more. It poses no safety problems, and seems like it should be a legit way to get a goal.

With only 5 of the 17 responding GMs believing the issue needs to be discussed, I wouldn't get your hopes up for a change any time soon.

As soon as Crosby has a kicked goal waved off you'll see the rule changed at lightning speed.

Hockey is played with a stick, unless the puck glances ACCIDENTLY off a skate, any redirection that is intentional should not be a goal. It's easy to tell what is on purpose and what is accidental. If you are looking down at the puck and turn your skate as the puck arrives that's not a goal. If you are not looking and the puck hits your skate and goes in, that's accidental. It's not brain surgery.

They should be able to redirect pucks with their faces if they choose -- unless, of course, there's a distinct nodding motion toward the net.
