It's really gotten out of control. Apparently now they've even tightened up wish slashing calls where your don't have to "slash" a player near his hands or break his stick in order for it to be called. So basically you have to make sure your stick doesn't come anywhere near the other guy's body or else you're getting called for it. It really is just a matter of time until all physicality is removed from the game entirely.
