There's a big difference between the International Hockey referees and the NHL referees. They are all competent referees. It's the mentality of their job that differ.

NHL Refs: Don't manage the game. Your call should not disturb the result of the game.

IIHF Refs: Call what you see. If your call disturb the game, it's not your problem. Players know the rules so it's their problem.

I prefer the later. But it is still a job that rely on personal judgment so it will always have mistakes in referring.
