Kesler's snow shower gets called. Other teams doing it in this series don't get called at all.
Kassian gets called for Charging. He does the same thing later and nothing happens.
I don't know what your definition for "wrong" is, but this clearly is.
P.S. The guy wasn't talking about how we only get to play against American teams. It's that we get called more because Bettman is trying to push American teams to be more successful and appeal to fans. There's a difference between being a homer and being critical. You, on the other hand, is being an idiot.
Obviously there are inconsistencies in the reffing between each series and if you can't understand why, you are the idiot my friend. Playoffs is blurred territory for referees since there is more on stake during these games and they tend to turn an eye on plays that they normally would call in the season. Last game they didn't do that, they called it like a season game. However, I won't complain like a homer because even though they made soft calls, they made soft calls for both teams.
If you take away all the must call penalties, you are left with you can say these season-type penalty calls in the game:
Lapierre-charging (same as Stoll)
Kassian-charging (same as Stoll)
Kesler-shower (yes, it was weak, I didn't agree with it but they just made 2 weak calls against LA so they gave them one back)
Martinez-hook (nothing really there, season type hook)
Stoll-charging (same as lap and kass)
Penner-tripping (Sedin went down so easy when he felt that stick between his legs. If you don't think so, your a homer)
Stoll-holding (probably the most ridiculous call. I see holds like that all the time)
It is weird how the immature part of the canuck fanbase that couldn't handle the canucks' loss didn't mention all the bad calls against the kings...very weird. So yes, it was a soft called game, however, it was called evenly. They did not just target the Kings. That will happen, like I said, because playoffs is blurred territory for what is good and bad and you can't expect all officials to have one mind. So if you want to continue to see great playoff games, you will have to take some of the bad games as well.
As for the OP, he was saying how we get called unfairly by the refs against 'American teams' yes? Well, I was just pointing out that we only have 2 other canadian teams in our conference and the last time we saw one was in 03-04...So basically he can't fairly compare how Canucks get judged against American teams and Canadian teams. Which would mean he is basically saying we get bad calls against us in every playoff series we play and I'm sorry, but that is a homer thing to say.
Also, if this Bettman conspiracy against 'canadian teams' is true, Bettman would make sure all canadian teams had a hard time in the playoffs... Don't you think that someone, in the thousands of people that work in the NHL, would have this conspiracy leak out? Especially since Canadians are the most devoted to this sport. Or is it just a bunch of forum trolls looking to make excuses for their team that doesn't play up to par.
I understand, the chicago series was ridiculous. Something was smelly in that particular 1 series last year but if you start generalized that canucks have refs giving them a hard time because Bettman wants the market to be good for american teams, you are an idiot.
Thanks for making our fan base look so classy. We sure can take a lose...
