Yes call every infraction no matter what. Why have a rule book if it doesnt apply in every situation?

Lets guess why nobody wants to watch the NHL. Would it be too many power plays? No, I think power plays can actually be entertaining. Would it be because star players are hooked, held, mugged, and hog tied? Now were on to something. How can you market stars if you dont allow them the best possible chance to succeed?

Gues what happens when officials call penalties? Give up? The players quit doing whatever it is they are doing wrong.

Dont be insane and suggest there would be 30-40 penalties a game. Thats just not going to happen.

Not calling penalties slows the game down. If players think they can get away with anything you better believe they will try. Allowing obstruction makes games unwatchalbe.
