Fair Ice Time

The issue is we've somehow broken the rules and "cheated" to gain the tie with this team. We now have to replay that team in order to determine who advances to the semi-finals.

The cheating aspect was originally our best player (who was already on the ice) lined up as a winger instead of defence.

It then got changed (since that wouldn't stand up) that if the eighth best player scored the goal then we must have had three defencemen and two forwards on the ice for the faceoff and that is somehow cheating.

Under either scenario, no rule exists in writing preventing that only that our players receive FAIR ice time.

But somehow since the other team feels we've somehow cheated, we're now forced to replay our game with the other team and I face a potential three game suspension.
How is FAIR ice time regulated?

Some associations have clearly defined segments - buzzer.Every three minutes if running time - MAHG here in Quebec. You cannot change players during these segments. Teams usually play with two units of five. There are procedures in place for rotations if teams are short players. Basic idea is to preclude stacking of talent during the last segment
