Eric Duhatschek, Pierre LeBrun and John Davidson were on the 'Hot Stove' between periods on HNIC. They all leaned towards agreeing with Yzerman comments.
They say the refs are calling anything that looks like a penalty and the players would rather have them error on the side of not calling it than calling a penalty when it really isn't.
Also, during the Wings game tonight, Yzerman commented again by saying, "just watch the games on TV, even the analysts can't find the infraction on some of the calls."
To clarify too many of the people who are discussing this at HFBoards and other forums, Yzerman is not knocking the game and the changes, but said the refs need to bring their judgment into some of the calls, not go strictly by the book even if it looks like a penalty. From Day 1 of the new season, Steve has said there are too many pp opportunities and the flow of the game suffers from it.
