11-12 Stripes Thread (Refs)

09-10 Playoffs refs thread
http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=836402
This will be a place for reviews for the upcoming season. The following posts will be charts, tables and grading criteria that should help get this underway.

Anyone is invited to review a game. You may review a game of your rooting favorite although it is recommended that you do not do so. The more valued reviews will be those of neutral parties. The review format is best exemplified in the following review.

http://hfboards.com/showpost.php?p=1...&postcount=806

If someone wants an upcoming game reviewed please PM one of the reviewers below and get their acceptance of a game to be reviewed. Below is a list of reviewers (includes rooting favorites) who have volunteered for the upcoming season. We will add names to the list as reviewers come forward.

Grading Criteria

Skating Grade:
A=can consistently backskate turns in traffic with eyes continuously on puck or play. Can skate straight line speed with mid-level NHL players. Masterful at avoiding puck and players.
B=can backskate turns with eyes continuously on puck. Occasionally hit by pucks, rarely by players.
C=Turns head to backskate turns or to accelerate. Occasionally interferes with players
D=Speed noticeably slower than other refs. Frequent puck target.
F=Frequently interferes with play.

Positioning Grade:
A=consistently at net for scrums, leads play into zone. Does not leave zone being exited until players have left. Moves in attack zone for best sight lines (not plastered to one spot on the wall or in the corner).
B=A little less consistency in all of the above qualities
C=far from consistent in leading play into zone
D=can be glued to sideboards, trails players into zone frequently, sometimes at net for scrums
F=rarely at net for scrums, glued to sideboards

Reference articles for skating and positioning.
http://www.iihf.com/fileadmin/user_u....June_2009.pdf

http://www.iihf.com/fileadmin/user_u...une%202009.pdf

Safety Grade:
A - Does not miss any 60 or over safety call.
B - Misses one 60 or over call
C - No missed 75 or over call
D - No contention in game over missed safety calls.
F - Contention over missed safety calls

Fairness Grade:
A - Sets call level for safety and obstruction. They can be separate levels for each category. Same play called same way from beginning to end regardless of score or player/team. Make up calls are not acceptable.
B - Generally adheres to above principles but misses are equal to both sides. Make up calls are acceptable.
C - Misses are unbalanced by no more than 2 calls
D - Misses are unbalanced by 3 calls
F - You can figure it out.

Call Quality Grade:
A - No makeups, no phantoms. See Fairness category regarding levels.
B - No phantoms. May have minimal unevenness in level.
C - One phantom allowed. Some unevenness.
D - 2 or more makeups.
F - Two or more phantoms.

Full IIHF officiating manual:

http://www.iihf.com/channels10/olymp...ficiating.html

1. Call levels should be set based on intensity of infraction. (examples to be given later)

2. A phantom call is either an infraction call or a puck call such as goal/no-goal or handpass where the call is a complete miss. For example, a slight tug of the stick on a hook call is not a phantom although a reviewer may question the call level. It is very important that we track phantoms in that it appears to be a criteria for advancement in the playoffs.

3. Penalty summaries will no longer be required. (They may be gathered off the web with some additional stats when a stat person comes forward.)

4. Please post a link to the game summary at the end of the review and post the final score in the header.

We can also put the game summary link at the bottom of the review.
http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreport...0/GS020025.HTM

The reader can also take the game # and replace the XXXX in the link below.

The categories in the second table start with Home Division, it will be bolded if the ref has a large number of games there. Flat is for a ref with no dominant division although he may have lesser numbers for a couple of divisions. The second heading is Control. For the time being control will be base on matching penalties or the differential between CPG and ACPG. There are other factors that are added and the table rating changed (like misconducts called) and marked with an asterisk. Yes for a controlling ref, maybe for moderate, No for issues with control. Basic rating is Yes for a 2.3 differential or less, No for 3.0 differential and above. The Third category is whistle swallowing in the third period (Yes, Yes, No, Maybe), bold means swallows a lot. Whistle swallowing behavior is derived from the table of obstruction calls by period. It almost exactly matches observations. Less than 5% drop off equals No, 5-10% equals maybe, 10-20% equals yes, over 20% equals "Will the hockey gods please help us". The statistical significance of swallowing is way up over last year. The next column is if the ref tends to give advantage to the home team. Any ref calling more than 8% in favor of the home team will be tagged with a Yes, -4% to 8% Maybe, under -4% No. There is a significant statistical change to the good in this behavior to the point that it is almost negligible. Maybe is a good score for a ref in this category. Everyone should thank Goose for publishing the issue last year. A new category is added, it is score calling. It appears to have the potential for being a major issue. Does the ref call a majority of penalties against the team in the lead while disregarding infractions by the trailing team. The differential is somewhat masked by matching penalties but can be large. A ref who calls less against the team in the lead will be marked with a No, 0-6% Maybe, 6-10% Yes and above 10% bolded Yes. Safety is based on safety calls per game. Below 2.0 is loose, above 2.7 is tight. All observational upgrades will be marked with an asterisk.

Blue refs are substitute refs, not full timers.

I can't tell if any of the part-timers from last season have been promoted to full-time.
It appears that Chris Ciamaga has been dropped from the ref roster. He was an AHL/NHL ref, not full time. Mike Hasenfratz is still listed although I have not seen him in a pre-season listing. They have yet to designate a promotion to replace Bill McCreary. All vet refs that did not appear as subs for the playoffs, Auger, Martell and Dwyer, are still listed.

Hastenfratz has returned. He worked a full preseason schedule and has switched to Kerry Frasers #2.

Copying this post from the old thread:
Checking the NHL Officials Association website, see they've added several names of new referees who will split time between AHL and NHL: Darcy Burchell, Mark Lemelin, Matt MacPherson, Graham Skileter. They haven't even been assigned numbers as yet.

I can't tell if any of the part-timers from last season have been promoted to full-time.

Edit: Oops, just realized you'd already posted this earlier. I should really pay more attention!

Thanks for the heads up. It was a heart issue and it is good to hear that he has finally recovered.

They are still short by one of a full ref roster of 33. They carried Hasenfratz as one of the 33 but 33 is a mandate so they still have to promote one.

According to the media guide I got, its Ghislain Hebert. He is listed with the regulars now.

Thanks.

Just FYI, Auger is the one who updates the officials' site. He is frequently behind the eightball. Only thing is that I can't imagine who would do the updates if he wasn't around (VanM?).

It appears Matt MacPherson is actually a Linesman, he worked the FLA/PIT game on Versus tonight, he's #85

I would bet real money that a hooking memo went out around the beginning of the season. I've seen a good 4-5 "parallel but minimal impedance" calls in the first three Dallas games.

It looks like all obstruction. From what I have seen of the hooks, the benchmark seems as if it touches the hands that it is off to the box. I wonder if it is the absence of Campbell as Gregson is the full supervisor now. Shanahan only covers the safety issues. Try and pick up on whether it is the vet refs calling the hooks; I haven't noted it yet. Sometimes, it is only the youngsters being aggressive which is different from the memo emphases.

The only ref I picked up on was O'Halloran was definitely calling the hooks tight.

ETA: And Meier, who still hasn't worked on his skating or positioning it seems like, was all over the marginal hold call tonight (that or he went super overboard with the makeups on both sides). Both teams several times. Rehman wasn't bad, did a good job of skating and communicating with his linesmen.

Promoted to NHL President. No description of duties that I can find. IIRC, Rob Blake got some of his former duties as NHL VP.

Yeah, as of today still no updates on their website. As others have mentioned, Hasenfratz is back and has switched to #2, Ghislain Hebert is now full-time and is now #22 (Stewart's old #). And Matt MacPherson is still listed as a referee, instead of a linesman #85.
