Chronically make mistakes game after game....You mean like letting in a goal, rining a shot off the post, not taking the right man. Each and every hockey player makes mistakes during a game. Why do we not question their integrity or compitency?
In b4 cdc does that all the time. I know there are a good chunk of you that complain about officiating, but constantly let players off the hook for their mistakes.
Playing the sport and reffing the sport are way different things!

Refs You are just......... shakes my head
Though I agree with you, you shouldn't be talking and making fun of the refs in your signature unless you are a ref like me.

If I am the coach and a guy does that to my star player, OR ANY PLAYER, I'd be all over that ref all game long. And if he tossed me, all the better. It's time to take a stand AV. Stand up for your players when it matters most.
I'd rather see it in game when emotions are high than using the press to make his point.

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists somewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
It bugs me when people pull out the gold medal for an example... Luongo only had to outplay Brodeur.

I am not talking about the ridiculousness the boys had to fight through all of last year during the run, in general. In the other pro sports ex soccer where do you see this type of inconsistency night to night, lack of calls etc.
1. NBA - do you ever hear teams complaining about officiating this much? Once in a blue moon, but seriously I never hear it.
2. NFL - the best in the world, they don't miss much and call it by the book, yet still let the teams play
3. MLB - strike zones differ from ump to ump but they are consistent within the game, ie the strike zone doesn't change - however in an NHL game sometimes a hook is a penalty, sometimes an elbow, sometimes not?
4. Soccer - well divers galore..so is tough on the refs...
How many times have you heard a comentator say, well the team has to watch out now, ref's going to even it up soon..ie the marbles in the pockets, they are counting penalties, not calling the game. We as fans have ACCEPTED this, thats the problem, we accept even ups in our game, we accept missed calls.
Hockey is a fast sport yes, but the amount of subjectivity refs are being provided with now is ruining the game. Garbage

I think the Hansen call could have been nothing more than an honest mistake on the Refs part. They are human to, mistakes happen. If you look at the play it is an easy mistake to make.
have u noticed how many mistakes they have been making lately?
an ape could ref better

First of all Daniel should have been given 2 minutes for boarding Keith, if not 5 and maybe even a game. Second, please someone tell me how a guy can do something so bad that he is suspended for 5 games at this time of year yet he is allowed to finish the game in which he committed the infraction?
How many times have you seen an infraction which leads to a major suspension where the offending player is allowed to finish the game? These refs are too afraid to toss players and it's going to lead to some very serious injuries. It already has.
People bitching for suspensions to Sedin and Keith are missing the real issue here. The refs in this game should be suspended. Take a page from the CFL who this season much to my surprise actually canned a few officials citing missed calls.

But the ref is afraid to make a "tough call" against the Hawks in Chicago. (I know if WASN'T a tough call)
I remember (kinda, but I might be wrong) I think it was Kerry Fraser's first year and maybe even one of his first games in the NHL and he gave the Canucks 2 penalty shots in a game in either Montreal or Detroit. All I remember is Jim Robson commenting on how gutsy Fraser was for a young ref for making those calls. As it turns out he was one of the best. The guys today could learn something from him.
