1.What happens now that the NHL has made a  serious example of a player who makes a dangerous hit?  I'm sick and tired of the slap on the wrists. Scott Clarke

Hey Scott, I don't think that we will see a lot more 25 game suspensions. This one is a unique situation and a message was being sent to one player.

2. Which Conference gets home ice advantage in the Cup and why? - Mike Turpin

Home ice advantage for the Stanley Cup final is determined by points in the regular season.

3. Can a ref get fined for a poor performance? - Josie Lisco
Josie, the officials cannot be fined for poor performance but they are evaluated every game.

4. If officials in Toronto can review goals, why can't they also review major penalties? - Frank Scaramella

They can only review plays related to the scoring of a goal under certain conditions. Also, they can review issues relating to the time clock during the course of the game. They can, however, rescind a major penalty once the game is over.

5. If Phoenix continues to do well this post-season, will that help their chances of keeping the Coyotes? - Stew Davids

Hey Stew, what happens in these playoffs on the ice concerning the Coyotes will have no effect what so ever in regards to their off ice issues.
