The problem is not the "systems" that are being played. The problem revolve around 2 things. First and foremost the refs have got to go and call the obstruction. And for more passion, how about getting rid of the instigator rule as it would allow for more things to be settled on the ice.
Instagaitor rule was phased out over the summer.

Barnaby was called for a Roughing penalty (which was used instead of the instagaitor penalty in this instance in my opinion)

Yes the calls should be made.
