The real problem with the reffing

Okay, I just wanted to say this, I have no problem with the refs putting a team on the powerplay for a whole period. I know, most people are probably upset because the refs were inconsistent last night and made bad calls but it seems some people are also complaining because there was too many calls. If we want to cut down on how much slashing, hooking, and holding there is during games well, teams will probably have 3 or 4 guys in the box for entire periods, this is because refs will have to call it tight. Be prepared to deal with that, because the hockey we get to watch has got to get worse before it gets better (that is, everything is going to have to be called, making the games have less flow, and then players will adjust, cutting down the number of penalties). I'm prepared to deal with a parade to the penalty box in order for the clutching and grabbing to go down in the future, are you guys?
