Arn:
The UK still only uses a 1 ref, 2 linesmen system. The ref who was running this game has history of losing control of games over the years also. I think with a 2 man system you don't get this far as the hits from behind aren't missed.

But the disciplinary decisions are a joke. Of course the chairman of the Elite league is also the chairman of the Sheffield Steelers for who Fretter plays. Now I wouldn't say he has an influence but it doesn't look good...

Here's a good comparison as well actually

One of these incidents is deemed by the league to be twice as bad as the other. Have a guess which is which? pic.twitter.com/N2LNpwI8ER— Davy (@Davy_McG) October 25, 2017

A glancing blow to the chin when attempting to make a legitimate hit gets 2 games (correctly), but an all out assault gets one

Ruling has been adjusted following an independent review.

Arn:
Yup, and seems to have been fairly unanimously accepted around the rest of the league  (other than some Sheffield fans and officials).

I think it's about right re the Goulakos hits and the blindside attack by Fretter. I still am a little surprised the raised skateblade didn't get more. (Tho it looks like he'll be out a lot longer than 2 games with a concussion anyway).

The old head of the player safety unit has been removed and I would hope the league can come to an agreement to let this neutral arrangement continue.

It's a shame this is what has brought the league into international news with the 2 teams in the European Champions Hockey League performing superbly with one winning their group against Swiss and Czech opposition

anton girdeaux:
Thankfully this incident saw the end of DOPS in it’s present form!!

Arn:
Marlies coach Sheldon Keefe's little brother Adam has claimed his first title as a coach in his first year coaching. Lead the Belfast Giants to a British Challenge Cup victory
