When you previously had to have at most 12 refs to work any one night (24 team league, 12 games max at any one night), you now need 30 (30 team league, 15 games possible a night, 2 refs each game).
That's triple the number of spots you need to fill. thats a fairly large dilution of the talent pool. You now need to hire NHL refs that would maybe not have been able to get out of the ECHL in the early 90s.
