From NHL:

 

The NHL has reversed course and will not review high-sticking penalties this season, league executive vice-president and director of hockey operations Colin Campbell said Saturday.

 

The competition committee had agreed to review all high-sticking calls for validity, but Campbell said concerns about goals scored on delayed penalties led the NHL to cancel that plan for now.

"We're punting right now," Campbell said in an interview with The Canadian Press. "We're going to watch it, we're going to talk about it and see how many times it happens. We just don't want to do something that we weren't totally comfortable with on video review. We want everything to be clear and precise and we didn't think that was."

...

 

 

Concerns? Punting? Watch it? Talk about it? What's he trying to say? Is he trying not to offend the on-ice officials? Are the on-ice officials collective agreement due for renewal? We want video!!!

I for one don't want them to review it, because it makes the game less individual and more computer driven keep it more oldschool please B-)

You can't use video review for everything, the game would lose pace if you did.

Campbell's memo to the teams: "Make them all real obvious like this and there won't be any problems"
