    Not the best idea around.

    If you are looking at the ORANGE as you go into a corner, you are doing it wrong.
    Keep your head up.

    Players have a responsibility to not hit from behind in the "danger zone" near the boards.
    No orange paint is going to stop a careless player from hitting someone from behind.
    They already know they are in the "danger zone" regardless of the paint, and they will make their own choice.

    I think this will lead to a "no hit" zone, and weaken the game.

    Let's start with making players responsible for their actions, instead of bright orange paint.

    ...but then again The Count took individual player responsibility away from the game years ago with the "instigator" rule.

    I agree this would be a path to having a 'no hit' zone. And it would slow down the game as we'd have to see replay upon replay on whether a player's toe was in the orange zone when he was hit.

    considering this is for youth hockey I'd say its not the worst idea ever tried. I know it's harder to go from no contact to contact however checking is about separating someone from the puck to gain possession of it, not to blow someone up. If the warning track refocuses that argument for kids then I'm all for it.

    For youth hockey it's not a bad idea, but not for any professional league. Players at that level have to understand where they are on the ice.

    Something my coach at 10 taught us was that it was just as important to know how to take a hit as it is how to give one, the kids growing up now seem to be taught to try to avoid the hit rather than understanding how to take a hit properly. Something like this hit is just as much a result of the player with the puck spinning away and making himself vulnerable as it is teh defenseman hitting him. Had he just moved the puck and not spun to put his back to the player at the last moment, he would have taken a hard hit to the shoulder and maybe gone down, not get carted off the ice with a skull fracture.



    Now frame by frame

    Agreed. So if this in gonna work we need to do it just like baseball.... That 40 inch swath needs to be dirt. Rough on the skates but players will know it as soon as their feet attempt to glide over it.

    Again taking the hit within context of protecting the puck. The coaching needs to stay focused on the purpose behind the action or otherwise you're teaching head hunting and getting hunted.

    Default A warning track in hockey?

    Yeah I think it's a good idea for youth hockey. train the kids to be aware of the danger zones
