    This isn't a problem of officials being "vigilantes". Peel wasn't doing anything that wasn't mandated by the league.

    I don't think the league even mandates it. It's not a problem exclusive to NHL refs. By the time a ref has worked his way up from college/juniors/minors to the NHL, they've been game managing for so long it's ingrained in all of them. NHL just hasn't done anything to have them stop doing it.

    This chart pretty much says it all. Every ref does it, it's really just a difference on how much they call/let go and they all slightly favor the home team.

    Problem fixed?:sarcasm:

    I actually thought that the NHL were more embarrassed how about the F-bombs coming out of Peel's mouth.

    Pretty much everything an official does is mandated by the league. The officials didn't decide 15 years ago to just start calling interference again, and they didn't make the decision a few years ago to start cracking down on slashes and hooks on the hands.

    You're 100% correct that just about every ref at every level does it, but if the NHL didn't want it to happen, it wouldn't. The only thing that Peel did that the league didn't want him to do, was to say it on a microphone. Benching him is just the NHL hoping to fool enough people for it not to become an issue. By the looks of the boards, it's working.

    Meh... I don't think anyone believes any other problem has been solved besides the fact that Tim Peel... one of the worst refs in the league, will not be a ref anymore.

    Vegas and Colorado playing a really good game right now. Clearly the two best in the division... currently 2-2 early in the 2nd.

    How can anyone with the Wild, play or coach in this league like they do... yet after playing other teams with good power plays... still think that the best power play strategy they can have, is to pass between stationary players?

    Watched Vegas bring it to Colorado and then Colorado bring it right back to Vegas... two very mobile dangerous power plays.

    Nobody just standing waiting for the puck to be passed to them, nobody just standing looking for someone to pass to.

    Always shifting and moving, roving around.

    Passes opening up across the slot because of all that motion, the defenses simply can't cover the space in play as a result.

    The simple box PK, ends up in disarray.

    This is pretty much how our PP was for game 1. Generated a lot of chances, but didn’t score, and they nuked it the next game.

    Buffalo blew a three-goal lead in the third for their 18th(!) loss in a row.

    Sad thing is, this wasn't a "tank" year for them. They were supposed to be better.

    Their team didn’t look bad on paper, I thought they had a chance at the playoffs. I still think their biggest problem is their defense and it’s something they’ve never addressed in their entire tenure of being terrible.

    I think Dahlin was supposed to be at least 60% of them addressing it, but that's not looking too good right now.

    I can't say I've watched a ton of Buffalo, but from the highlights I've seen, he has looked pretty lost.

    I don't know if they've "ruined" him yet, but man, he is learning from nobody. He has no mentor on that team.

    Yep it is a problem. I do think Dahlin was not overrated. I think he is lost because the entire franchise is lost. And yes no mentor, no one teaching him the ins and outs.

    Has he fallen that much? Just a few years ago he was pretty well regarded

    Thats the thing, it sounds like Philly fans can't understand the move. He certainly isn't his 65 point former stuff, but IDK about waiving him. I don't want Philly though.
