Officiating in the NHL has been a hot topic this season. Calls and non-calls are always a point of contention in sports, but the NHL has seen a large number of players and coaches bashing the league to the media over the inconsistency and confusion surrounding goaltender interference calls.

As you might imagine, the NHL isn’t too happy with all of the public complaints.

As seen on Sportsnet, the NHL is planning to address this topic at the next general managers meeting. In summary, they don’t want players and coaches bashing and complaining about the league publicly.

Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston on the situation:

Streaking Blue Jackets peaking at right time

  Streaking Blue Jackets peaking at right time The Columbus Blue Jackets picked the perfect time to get hot. Notching their eighth straight victory Monday, the streaking Blue Jackets moved up to 85 points on the season following a come from behind win over the Boston Bruins.BOX SCORE:   BLUE JACKETS 5, BRUINS 4Forward Cam Atkinson sealed the victory, tallying his fourth goal in his past three outings, showing shades of the winger who potted 35 a year ago.

Players who are currently overseas. Many European-born players returned to their home countries and will need to fly back to North America if the Given the larger numbers of players and support staff for an NHL team vs. an NBA team, holding the postseason in a single venue isn't the NHL 's preference.

Hutchison, who coaches minor hockey and is assistant coach for the University of Toronto’s varsity men’s hockey team, also found there weren't a lot of penalties called on the NHL hits that caused NHL players and coaches continued to make statements against social injustice Wednesday.

“We’ve been talking for a while about how this issue will be discussed but I think there’s going to be another pushback and that comes from Colin Campbell, who runs the NHL’s hockey operations department, who’s going to give the message across that it’s not OK to have the type of criticism we saw from Mike Babcock.”

Babcock, the head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, recently ripped the NHL apart over yet another puzzling goaltender interference decision.

Babcock’s comments show the level of frustration that both he, and many other players and coaches, have felt this season.

“Well what I don’t like is what the report that came out from the league is different than what [the referees] told me. They told me he was interfered with outside the paint, which is not true. That tonight is goalie interference any way you look at it. That tonight, the goal is off, and the coaches in the league? No one knows what’s going on.

Atkinson scores in OT to lift Blue Jackets past Bruins, 5-4

Nick Foligno had two assists, and Vanek and Jenner each added one. Joonas Korpisalo stopped 34 shots.

Center proved to be one of the best defensive players in the NHL this season. That likely wasn't a mistake, as head coach John Tortorella saw the ability the veteran Nash had when it came to skating with young players and making them feel comfortable on the ice.

So we better get it solved. Just saying, just a statement them saying ‘OK we’re going to leave it the way it is’ – no chance. Let’s get it fixed.”

These are the types of statements the NHL would love to remove from the media. Not surprisingly, they don’t want to see their representatives publicly bashing the rules or the officiating. But isn’t the NHL missing the larger issue here?

Instead of spending time and effort trying to curb the media complaints, why not tackle the issue that’s causing all of those complaints? Goaltender interference is a mystery in the NHL. There’s no rhyme or reason over what’s called and what’s not called. That creates a ton of frustration and confusion for everyone involved. The league needs to have an open dialogue over fixing the problem rather than trying to censor coaches and players who are tired of the current system.
