Well, as I'm sure you've noticed, essentially you're always
at the mercy of the refs. No, I was going more for something like personal
fouls (tripping, roughing, slashing, elbowing, boarding, roughing, high-sticking, etc.) still being 2/4/5 min., vs. technical
fouls (puck flipped too high, stick too curved, line change too sloppy, shirttail too neat, etc.) being 1 minute.....just to keep some semblance of the priorities being somewhat in order, if only marginally. This IS the NHL, after all, so we can't expect too much to make sense in the officiating arena

That one made me laugh DD--like how did that become known--I picture you turning around to the guy when he's drunkenly cheering the wrong team and asking, "Dude--do you even know what state
Pittsburgh is in?" and the guy giving the wrong answer, and then you trying hard not to laugh in his face, so you don't get beer poured down the back of your neck the rest of the game
I mean, he could have gotten away with saying Kansas, but that's some kind of stretc (the h is silent)
