  1. That is the best analysis of the Chara Pacciorety situation i have seen to date, and it proves the point that NHL officiating has descended to a level just above professional wrestling. Junior hockey is now the best real hockey product around, besides watching your own kids play. (oh wait, that’s what Colin Campbell is doing!)

    • Nick, Thank you for your comment and your compliment. As a 17-year veteran hockey referee, I want to make clear that these cases are not a reflection of the officiating, which I believe is largely good, but rather a reflection of horrible league management and inconsistent discipline. That’s what, as you rightly say, puts the NHL “just above professional wrestling.”
