  • If rules should be changed (there are some that should), then change them. But there should be no difference in how a post-season game is called vs. a regular season game, an OT vs. the first period, one conference vs. another.

          • With no local teams I was curious to see what the crowds would look like and then I thought tonight might take a hit without Michigan but nope, great crowd on both nights.

              Again, respectfully disagree. Hockey, by its nature, is not binary. Just because a certain rule is in the book doesn't automatically mean it has to be called. Referees have wide discretion in determining how a given game is called. If the players are focused on making plays, rather than gooning each other, a good referee will concentrate on calling injury potential infractions and obstruction fouls that cause an unfair change of possession or unfair loss of a scoring opportunity. Infractions that have no bearing on player safety or the course of play IMO should not be called. A moving puck is a referee's, player's and fan's best friend.

                Set a scenario where an infraction would have a bearing on player safety or the course of play in one instance but not in another. Just because I can't picture it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

                  You're misinterpreting what I said. The injury potential and unfair change of possession/unfair loss of scoring chance infractions should always be called. And you can add to that cheap shots behind the play. It's the ticky tack stuff that doesn't rise to the injury potential/unfairly affect course of play standard that I maintain don't need to be called at this level.

                    This kind of thing happens all the time. Everyones favorite broadcaster does it. His justification is this: I don't see, insert team here, very often, so i'll talk about the teams I know( NCHC). Thus the NCHC gets tons of coverage and plaudits and opponents get zip. then he says he's not biased.

                      Things that don't need to be called at this level meaning D1? Don't need to be called ever? That sounds like advocating for rule changes, which I would support.

                        Everything to do with referees' discretion and nothing to do with changing rules. And yes, youth and beer league games are called tighter than D1 games for good reason. Same for D1 games that turn into goonfests (a rare occurrence). Games involving skilled teams playing to win don't need ticky tack calls. That's all I'm saying
