Hockey is the hardest game to play... and it's the hardest game to officiate. Theoretically, it should be easier to officiate with 2 officials. It probalby is, but it is way too inconsistent. There's not really much one can do about it, except for the NHL to set standards at the start of the year (which I'm sure they do) and make sure they are upheld by penalizing refs who dont' comply (which I'm sure they do not).

Theoretically you should ref the game the same in the first 5 minutes and the last 60 seconds. I think it can be that way, and it probably is in most cases, but between one game and another it is completely different.

I like the way Fraser calls most games, but hate McCreary... though he was good in the last 3 games of the finals this year.
