Subbans stick on stick is tripping?

The way I see it is the league wanted a lot of PP at the beginning of the season to maximize scoring and get viewers back. Now that 1/3 of the season is done and the playoffs are around the corner, at least from what I saw tonight, they want to get back playoff like officiating. The penalty on Cole was pretty borderline, the call on Subban was a phantom call, which we all know was a call to make them equal. The Turris call was borderline, but you have to call it since Diaz couldn't clear the puck. In the thrid DD was being sat on after each faceoff, which I thought was pathetic not to call.
