1. interference--allow you a half second to bump somebody without the puck? seems a little subjective...

2. slashing--- calling more of it? not just the hands? again, seems a little subjective

3. covering the puck with your hand.... i get that.

4. winning a faceoff with your hands is apparently now a penalty.

It's the interference and the slashing, I don't get the adjustment, I guess.
IMO slashing and interference have always been subjective. Players have largely been allowed to make contact immediately after a puck carrier has gotten rid of the puck. Slashing... well... I think we've all seen our fair share of stick penalties called when they shouldn't have been or not called when they should have been.

Kings finally put one past Crawford.

Diamonds shinin', look like I robbed Liberace.
