Would you like the NHL to stop fining players/coaches for criticizing the officials.

    When I watch the post game media scrum I want to hear what the coach really thinks of the officiating. I don’t understand why they get fined for criticizing the refs. If we change this rule the refs will be held accountable and it will make for some entertaining post game interviews especially on the games where the officiating is really atrocious. Thoughts?

    No, unless refs can openly criticize players and coaches as well. But then what does that accomplish?
