Way to go, NHL! Instead of fixing your shitty officiating, you fine the coach for calling attention to it.

Seriously, guys. Stop ignoring the problem and actually take steps to fix it.

It appears Torts was right on with his comments, maybe the language used offended Little Bettman .

More like fining someone for putting Officials Errors out in the open.  $20K is no big deal.  The Old Torts would still be at the podium pounding the crap out of it.

Good for John T , IMO

Wow.  So I’m guessing the NHL won’t be issuing an apology for the mistake?
