However, players coming in too close IS a concern and HAS happened before:

Have they played any 5v5 tonight?

This is the joy of "More Offense" NHL.  I'm always fine with the idea of the league calling more blatant interference calls for penalties.  I'm concerned what we are really going to see is just more of the same.  Faceoff infractions will be penalized to death.  Players who put their stick parallel to another skater will get penalized and things like hits from behind will be 50/50 on whether the ref calls it.

These all have the same value in the eyes of the league:
Punching someone in the face
Smacking someone in the face with a stick
Hitting someone from behind into the boards (sometimes)
Spearing your stick into someone's gibblets
Tapping someone's stick with your stick
Having a skate over the hash marks on a faceoff

You know what else is a penalty...delay of game.  But let's let the linesman take 40 seconds to drop the puck every single faceoff.

Or you know, lets complain that the players keep trying to cheat on faceoffs and are the ones delaying the game by continuing to do so- which leads to linesemen kicking them out?
