It was the first league to introduce the 2+2 and 2+2+10 respectively for fighting with/without gloves. Most other leagues still have an automatic 5+game. Some refs still hand out 5+20, and it's obviously a far cry from North America, but it's better than it has been before.
Hopefully that will give Loppi a boost. He has been better lately, but there is still room for improvement.
Hamburg played with only 11 forwards, one of them gets hardly any icetime, so there was a lot of line-mixing in this game.
It didn't mean to start a discussion about fighting penalties and refs in the DEL. Otherwise this could be a very long post. But it seems to me that we share the same opinion.
