  1. It really is a joke, its difficult to watch even as a third party fan because of the forced story lines and inconsistencies. The NHL needs a complete turnover of brass and some owners too (when they're not too busy being an old boys club and denying Jim Balsillie ownership)
  2. same bias as always. Canucks aren't allowed to lay hits, because if they are literally a split second late, its a multiple game suspension. Go and look at the Arron Rome hit in the 2011 finals and count how late it is. 1 second after Horton moves the puck. Same with this hit, 1 second after Polak moves the puck. Yet other teams are given way more leeway, (Johnny Boychuck on Mason Raymond for example, Raymond doesn't even touch the puck on the play). The NHL is rigged, and its not even subtle. also, just a reminder that long time NHL referee, Kerry Fraser believes that the NHL probably takes a teams standings into account when handing out suspensions: " I have to believe that the absence of injury to Burrows, and quite possibly a tight playoff race that the defending Stanley Cup Champions are currently engaged in, had to play a part in the decision by the Player Safety Committee not to take further action against Tyler Toffoli." source: http://www.tsn.ca/c-mon-ref-the-lowdown-on-toffoli-1.239220
  3. this one is fixed to give Boston a better chance at the win
  4. textbook definition of holding, takes away a scoring chance, no call league continues to be a joke
  5. wow linesmen screwing the pooch in this one
  6. whats even worse about that icing was that Prust even touched it first, usually in that situation the linesman will accept that he made a mistake and have the faceoff at center ice, but nope. compound the mistake by sticking with that decision
  7. typical, playing a US non-market and they don't spend a second on the pk. Canucks look weak on the 2nd night of back to back games, sure, but the Canes getting some help in this one by the zebras as well
  8. I really think this is the case, if you listened to Colin Campbell talk at the last GM meeting, he clearly stated that the NHL provides the referees with a list of players they deem to be "divers". This is basically an admission that the NHL directs the referees to hold double standards against certain players, and by extension, certain teams. Not to mention the official supervisors are able to give direct instruction to the referees in regard to calling a close game or letting everything go (Boston v Tampa Bay game 7 where zero penalties were called in a series where Tampa was dominating special teams comes to mind). Combine that with the laughing stock that is the DoPS, and it all adds up to a pretty clear picture of how the league can direct how well certain teams do, and how difficult it is for other teams.
  9. all I can say is watch it again, he clearly sweeps the puck prior to body contact
  10. you seem to be evading the question. Did his stick. touch the puck.
  11. so you agree Ehlers touched the puck before the hit?
  12. have another look at the hit, Ehlers clearly touches the puck just before the hit
  13. Ehlers was reaching forward to poke it around Sbisa and gets leveled, how in the hell is that a penalty? Ehlers clearly touches the puck just before the hit
  14. refs swoop in and call 2 non penalties, flames take the lead, then the refs let everything go. classic
  15. It really is absolute garbage when you compare it with the hit that was let go on Sbisa earlier in the game
