The league should be doing everything in its power to ice the entire official group from the Olympics and wipe their dead weight clean... The Olympics was the best officiated hockey I have seen in my lifetime...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

"I am very honored to be the first European to have this dream-come-true opportunity of working in the NHL," said Vinnerborg. "I hope that this will help to lead the way for other European officials in the future as well. Personally, I look forward to having the chance to work with, and learn from, the best officials in the best League in the world."

Why are you confused? He wants to learn from "the best officials", distinct from "average officials", in "the best league in the world" which is certainly the NHL.
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

Great, we finally get a Swedish ref on the downside of Homer's career. :P

I think that was more a reflection of Olympic versus NHL rules.

I get it now! The NHL is the best league and he wants to learn from the two refs who actually know their Nash from a Boll in the ground.

It's all so clear to me now. I had thought he was saying we had the best officials in the world. I was going to check his immigration card to make sure that he wasn't part of a Swedish terrorist group targeting mullets.

Welcome to him. Bork! Bork! Bork!

I hope he doesn't change the way he ref interference and hooking, you can interfere alot more and hook a little bit more in sweden, but I bet dan o'halloran, watson, devorski etc will teach him how to deal with interference and hooking the NHL-way <_< :thumbdown:
