from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, Henrik Sedin might not be the most objective source on the subject so, even if he’s 100-per-cent right, you can take his views with a grain of salt. “Yes, absolutely,” the Canucks captain answered when asked if the officiating standard has changed this season. “I think it’s too late now, but going into next season you’ve got to go back to the last lockout where they called everything.

That era now is referred to as the “good old days,” in hockey circles. “I would have to agree (with Henrik),” said Fraser
