    VH reference on espn.com

    From John Buccigross' hockey email column:

    John,
    What's the argument against the "reintroduction of tag-up offsides"? I don't remember why it was pulled in the first place -- do you?

    I'll give today's rule one thing -- it's good for beer breaks while at a game but that's about it. Is this really worthy of a debate as big as Hagar vs. Roth? Why not go back?

    The NHL wanted its defenseman to handle the puck more and perhaps develop better skills. My argument against tag-up offside has always been, Hal Gill will not turn into Nicklas Lidstrom no matter what you do. And all that usually happened was that play would just stand still, while everyone waited for skaters to clear the zone, and the defenseman would just chip it off the glass anyway. USA Hockey recently announced it was staying with the no-tag-up offside. While at first I didn't like the rule change to no-tag-up by USA Hockey, and still wonder if it puts kids in a vulnerable position to get slammed, it does train kids to hold the puck, skate backward with it, and go D-D once in a while.

    The debate is not quite Roth vs. Hagar, but more like Hagar vs. Cherone.

    I've no idea what "tag-up offsides" means, but that was funny (I think).
