Like I said, it takes a lot of getting used to for the refs. We played a couple of normal games last season, then they "adjusted"--way over the other way. (In one game, we had 4 guys in the box at the same time--and we're usually a very low-PIM team.) A few games after that they loosened up a little more, thankfully.
I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of leagues seesawed like that for much of the first season. I'm sitting out this season (unrelated reasons), so we'll see if they've figured it out by next year.
