But in hockey (strickly hockey) when is a team defined as "on offense"?
1) Once the team leaves the defensive zone with the puck?
2) Once the team posses the puck?

I thought of that too, but figured it was too nitpicky to bring it up, but since YOU did: I'm no expert, but I believe the defense (including the goalie) can possess the puck. I believe they are considered to be going on offense once they start moving in that direction. Some may say not until they cross their opponent's blue line should they be considered to be on offense. I suppose that's arguable, as well. But with possession in their own zone, in the corner, up against the boards fighting to maintain possession, I think we could easily say that the defense has possession.

A similar argument might be made for soccer, too! :-?


I consider them to be on offense once they fully control the puck. If they're struggling for control in the corner, they aren't on offense, but once they get the puck to themselves, they're on offense in my mind.

Yeah, I could argue either way but I think a good working definton for offense in hockey would be anytime a team is in a position to advance the puck down the ice torwards or into the opposing net.

Which is any complete possesion...

No, they haven't given me a mug over there yet. :~( !+) :-B

They don't like me over there. Ask anybody. That's why I hang out here. You guys at least tolerate me. :,-( :-D

That is a travishamockery! You're way more of a fixture over there than I am, or Met. I'm sorry... I just assumed.

You and Deeray should be 'holics over there before me. Clearly this is an oversight. I'll put a bug in Amazinz' ear.

When Knapp said that earlier, showing how much I pay attention, I had to go find myself on the DarkSide to see if I did actually have a mug. I saddened myself. :,-( Thanks for getting my hopes up Knapp. :~( :-B
