New “NHL Level of Enforcement” Proves Disastrous

After seeing the OHA Referee Camp at Guelph, hockey players across Canada will have a tough time playing the game that they once did. The referees were attempting to gain a spot with the OHA as eaither a referee or linesmen. This may have been why the rules were implemented so stringently. They seemed to call alot of hooking penalties while letting the slashing and checking to the hear run rampid. The purpose of the new level of enforcement was to speed up the game, but we must not lose our goal of player safety.
