Culture Change

from the Toronto Sun,
The way out of the quagmire that the league created in the previous 10 years will rest in large part with the guys drawing X's and O's. But when the flood of penalties begins this month, coaches will find it hard to restrain their anger, especially those toughest on zebras . "No one has the right to complain," said Edmonton Oilers' general manager Kevin Lowe, a member of the competition committee. "We all signed off on it. "It's our aim to put the tools of the game back in the hands of the offensive players and get a balance with physical play. I've had (officials) tell me, 'I ref a rodeo, there's so much obstruction going on.' "I hope they (crack down) early so there is a parade to the penalty box in the exhibition games. I've talked about this with my coach, Craig MacTavish. Guys who take penalties will not play on our team."
