I agree; Toronto is defnitely one of the worst in terms of stick discipline (hard to say who takes the crown). This, regardless of "what got called" and what didn't. However I would be interested to see what the official stats on high-sticking look like, if anyone can find a URL where they are reliably compiled.

Either way, the Leafs stand to gain (and suffer) from more strict reffing, where careless stick use is concerned. Gain obviously by a reduction of injuries in hotly contested games, suffer from greatly increased PIM.
