puck bunny

1. slang A female ice-hockey fan, especially one whose focus is primarily on the attractiveness of male players or on displaying their own physical attractiveness for others to see. I'm on a forum where me and other puck bunnies share our stories of players we've managed to hook up with. There's a whole section devoted to pictures of puck bunnies posed seductively in a player's jersey or with a team's banner on display.
2. slang A female ice-hockey player, especially one who is considered especially attractive. I think all women who play hockey professionally are hot just by virtue of what they do for a living, but there are some who stand out from the rest as true puck bunnies.

rag the puck

1. In ice hockey, to attempt to run out the remaining time in a game by maintaining possession of the puck for as long possible. The team is notorious for ragging the puck whenever they take the lead.
2. By extension, to stall, postpone, or otherwise cause a delay by deliberately engaging in time-wasting activities. Primarily heard in Canada. Activist groups are claiming that the government has ragged the puck in relation to legislation that would better protect the environment. Quit ragging the puck, John, and make a decision already!

where the puck is going

The direction of a particular trend or predicted outcome. Derived from a quote attributed to Wayne Gretzky: "I skate to where the puck is going, not where it has been." Outside of hockey, the phrase is most commonly used in business and finance. When you're setting up a new business, try to use customers' spending habits as a means of anticipating future trends. Capitalize on where the puck is going, not where it was last year.
