The time has come where the IIHF has to seriously examine their rule book and officiating standards. The fools that have been calling these games are beginning to ruin them plain and simple, and its gotten way worse in this tournament IMO compared to tournaments past (although those haven't been anything to be proud about either).
Todays game definatley had some clear examples of guys skating around on egg shells. Passing up easy chances to get a useful hit. And any hit that was made, the player looking over his shoulder at the ref to see if a call was coming.
