  1. That new face off violation is ridiculous. It's the NHL's subtle way of generating more powerplay's and moar goalz cuz Americans love big numbers & high scoring games.

      I disagree that it's being used to increase scoring. The Faceoffs were a joke during the playoffs last season. Linesman couldn't drop the puck, and were being blamed for trying to turn it into a "ref show". Players are trying to cheat, and it has gone to far... Don't you remember the head butting? Or Vermette being suspended for slashing the linesmen for letting the other team cheat. Not sure calling a penalty is the best decision, but what else can you do? 

       

      As a ref myself, the Faceoffs in the NHL have gotten out of control.

      its to balance things out so guys like McPouty don't have to be as good at faceoffs.

      I like the new face off rule, I hate making the goalie equipment smaller.  Watching the Habs beat the Bruins 2-1 in the glory days of hockey was exciting.  Watching an expansion team score 9 goals is boring.
