Many. One thing not considered is there is always so much going on, that you can see everything.
A couple times over the years, a guy gets high sticked and is leaking, but because of angle, players in the way, you don't see it....those are the ones that stick with you because you never want to see a guy injured.
The other part is that when you are part of a two man system, it is harder to get the angles to see everything.
Say I am reffing div 1. I am at one blueline. The play is a stretch pass the other way. I skate well but I can't get to the far blueline as fast as a div 1 player...so he goes on a breakaway and I have to make a call whether or not the puck goes over the line. (Not an easy call)
Overall the good refs minimize the bad calls, and if they get one wrong, they are honest about it.
