I agree.... mostly. It shouldn't be automatic suspension and fine. I think it should be dealt with case by case. there are times where the fine/suspension fit the crime but each case should be open for interpretation by the referees doing the game, not the league office.

Good...now they can work on rescinding the PP goal that resulted from the "penalty" and give the floppy goalie his 2nd consecutive shut-out. He earned it.

I agree with "Just the Facts," though. It is pretty dumb....its hockey for cripes sake!

Then they can rescind giving teams each a point in a tie game. A win is a win whether in regulation or shootouts. Dumb.

Hopefully they have different on-ice officiating tonight. That 3rd period was a disaster!
