The IIHF is just trying to respond to criticisms and be more like the NHL in it's inconsistent suspension rules. This makes no sense but it isn't surprising. The biggest fine in IIHF World Jr history for that? Riiiiight.
Marouelli is one of the guys making the decision and he didn't even know the proper rules of the CHL when he was reffing there in the 80s. Never been a fan of him.
