I think Bowman intimidated a lot of officials and that the Wings really benefited on iffy calls when Scotty was coach.
But with Lewis as coach, I don't think we see that advantage. Sometimes, I think it goes the other way, as it appears the officials sometimes seem to make the Wings pay for their constant chirping (Hull/Yzerman/Shanahan/Chelios/Maltby/Draper ... these guys are always chirping at the refs.)
