I think that's a problem that's pretty easily solved by having competent people in charge of the league and the officials.

So, not so easily, then? ;)



Agreed with your viewpoint on the debate over serving the entire penalty cw. I know I and several others have considered a review on penalty lengths on several occasions. Never in the context of serving the whole penalty, but as a general argument about the appropriateness of certain penalties.

I think there should be separate classes of penalties. I also don't want to get into a circular debate, but one example could be technical vs. bodily infractions (for lack of a better term.) In the first group would be things like delay of game, too many men on the ice and the second would be roughing, tripping, elbowing, charging, etc.

I'm not sure what the appropriate lengths should be; 60s/120s, or 90/180s.
