Confused about how physical a defenceman can be when it comes to clearing out opposing forwards? You're not alone. So are lots of fans. For that matter, so are lots of players and coaches. "That's the one area of the new approach that is the most misunderstood," a veteran referee said. Then he explained what the standard is supposed to be -- although he admitted that even some of his colleagues don't seem to be clear on the point. You may have heard announcers say that if the stick is parallel to the ice when it is put upon an opponent's body, it's an infraction. Not necessarily.
