Look, Ma, no hands!

If the NHL is serious about increasing scoring and scoring chances they should make it a minor penalty for playing the puck with your hand in your own end.

I am tired of a good scoring chance ruined by a player batting the puck out of his own end or using his hand to pass the puck to a teammate.

Make it a penalty for illegal use of equipment. It is annoying when you think a team has a good chance building up only to see it ruined by a player using his hand to play the puck.

I know I am not the only one bothered by this.
