The rule I hate most? On an inadvertent whistle the face-off is where the puck is. That means every time you're on the power play and a ref accidentally calls icing? You get a d-zone face-off out of it for his mistake. Also, net off the moorings is an automatic dead play, even if it had nothing to do with whether the puck was going in or not. Even if the goal's already gone in 5-hole but the ref *just* noticed one spike was 1/4th of an inch off.
That rule, as written, means that if the tip of your stick brushes through air above the crease, as you skate nearby, nowhere near the goalie, the play is supposed to be blown dead. Old players or not, that's a comically awful rule.
