Hockey Koans

A koan is a paradoxical parable, the reading of which is intended to awaken Zen consciousness.  Since Zen cannot be achieved by intellect or reason, the illogicality of the story helps the reader to experience a deeper truth that lies beyond reason.
Koan 1: How can I see the puck?
Koan 2: Pavel's bottom.
Koan 3: Imagine a hockey game.
Koan 4: Hard cap, soft cap.
Koan 5: The sound of one stick.
Koan 6: Eddie must go.
Koan 7: Where is the captain?.
