It really is an amazing study on people only seeing what they want to see.
Well that is what the NHL wanted, more offense.
Re: The clutching and grabbing, it is getting ridiculous. That call on Stamkos last night was a perfect example. Stuff is getting called way too much, going to be basketball soon where you can't even touch someone. And I am not talking about big hits, I am talking about 1v1 where if you touch a guy it is called a hold, or if your stick is horizontal anywhere near the body it is called as a hook.
We saw what happened last night when the refs stayed out of the game, sure some calls were missed, and that Stamkos call was super weak but with them letting a lot of the stuff go, the game was so much more exciting and open. No tick tack penalties to slow down momentum. People don't pay to see the refs, (or the linesman tossing people on EVERY faceoff) they pay to see the players, let them freakin play already.
yeah, good points. totally agree
