I disagree..
Spirit of the rule has little place in clear cut rulings.

A skater forced to the inside, skims the apex oob and comes in front of the skater who blocked her out, THEN takes a knee to yield to her, still receives a cutting the track penalty even if she abided the spirit of the rule.

The wording and clarifications of the Communication inside the box allow for Non-Penalized skaters/coaches to enter the penalty box and NOT communicate.. Or to remain outside the penalty box AND communicate.  The rules do not say 'due to safety issues.'

I was merely making a statement about officiating philosophy.  I'm not telling anyone not to call penalties when they see penalties.

I was merely making a statement about officiating philosophy.

...one that I'd appreciate some clarification on. The difference between "looking for penalties" and "anticipating action" is a subtle one (especially during a TO). How do you strike a balance?

In DeCap's scenario, my take is that the only lame bit was that there were four too many refs "anticipating action". The task of watching the box during a TO doesn't require more than one ref. But it does need to be done, and I think the opposing team would've been well within rights to complain if he'd gone unpenalized, given how easily-anticipated this particular illegal action is.

GREAT question.  I'll start a new thread on that when I get home from work!
