The rule is automatic goal when its an empty net.

The play was close. He could have broken free and clear on the empty net.

It was a stupid call. I don't think he held the stick as much as react to a stick blade being at his chest/throat area.

Referee discretion, and therein lies the problem. Its common sense a player with a chance to put the game out of reach with an empty net is not going to dive.

The least amount of ref discretion there is, the better. These new refs are dumb as ****. Too many inexperienced refs in this league now. With too many rules about tippy tappy weak plays.
