With all the poor reffing so far, the IIHF has come out critical of the officials. The Swedish ref who did the US/Finland game will be doing THE game tonite.
The question is this: Can tinkering with the refs like this mid torney have a negative side? We certainly don't want the horse-bleep calls we have seen so far, but a 180 degree swing might be just as bad. Frustration, fights and match misconducts might follow.
Are these refs just not used to what was asked for, or are they marginal officials anyway?
