I agree with you that the league needs to have balance w/ their officiating but you can't give a senior ref the ability to overrule a call. That will turn into the worst idea ever for the NHL. Could you imagine if a head ref overruled a call from across the ice which resulted in your team going back to a 5 on 5?? What if Crosby got an overrule.. how long until "conspiracy" is thrown around immaturely once again? What if it happened in a playoff game & changed the entire outlook of a game?? This thread would be a lot worse.
I just think the NHL really messed up w/ the new rules. You can literally call interference 10 times a game if they wanted to. When it's called.... then you can compare it to 100 different times it was not called.
They aren't as bad as the NFL w/ interpreting rules.. but it's getting there.
