TORONTO —Away from the pressure of competition, Colin Campbell hopes the NHL
can find some clarity on its standard for calling penalties. Matt Bryant Womens Jersey . The NHLs senior
vice-president of hockey operations will oversee a rules summit with key
stakeholders in the game Tuesday and Wednesday that is tasked with examining the
way hooking, holding and interference calls were handed out last season. “Weve
got lots of video clips to look at and were trying to determine where our
standard is and if we want to tighten it up at all,” Campbell said Monday. The
meeting will be held in place of the research and development camp the NHL put
on the last two years. There should be a healthy exchange of ideas with five
general managers (Darcy Regier, Lou Lamoriello, Ray Shero, Steve Yzerman, Mike
Gillis) and four head coaches (Joel Quenneville, Barry Trotz, Dave Tippett,
Adam Oates) in a room with players, referees and members of the leagues hockey
operations department. Campbell labelled it a “think-tank for hockey.” The idea
came out of the GM meetings in March, when a number of managers expressed
frustration with what they believed to be a slip in standard for the way
penalties were called. Campbell invited them to submit video of specific
incidents, which will be looked at this week. “Personally, I dont think the
hooking and holding has slipped,” said Campbell. “I think we have to find out
what we want with intereference on the forechecking and interference off the
faceoff.” The leagues former disciplinarian thinks the discussion might branch
off to other rules like slashing. “Anything that stops a player from scoring,”
he said. This will be the first exercise of its kind since the NHL held a major
crackdown on obstruction coming out of the 2004-05 lockout. However, Campbell
doesnt expect it to have nearly the same impact on the sport in terms of the
number of penalties called. “That was a much bigger change then,” he said. “You
were allowed to hook a guy hard three times before it was even thought about
calling a penalty. There was lots of grabbing, lots of turnstile (moves) with
defenceman sticking people in between the legs. “It was a major turn back then
and it was hard to actually implement.” The latest summit is intended to try and
get everyone on the same page. Campbell was pleased that a handful of players
accepted an invitation even though collective bargaining negotiations are
ongoing and is curious to see if the attitude in the room is consistent with how
the managers felt in March, when their teams were in the heat of playoff races.
“I want to find out—Im just one guy watching games,” said Campbell. “Theres
lots of opinions out there so Id like to see us sit down and just get that
opinion from particularly the three groups that are dealing with it all the
time: the referees, the players and the coaches.” Julio Jones Falcons Jersey . The 33-year-old
