Of course they blew calls and heavily favored the Sharks. This is a fact.

Also a fact is that our prima donna offense decided to phone it in last night after embarrassing themselves in the first 3 games. When you play so poorly that you should be ashamed, you should come out the next game with a little goddamned fire in your belly rather than daydreaming about your upcoming tee times and vacation to bora bora.

We can't fire the refs, but we can chop off some heads in the locker room to prove to the younger players that millionaire attitudes won't be tolerated on the Canucks. Sigh.

EAASY bud. No need for blasphemies in a title!

Its not THE reason for the loss, its A reason.

A thread that blames the refs isn't necessarily saying its the ONLY reason. Its just we separate our thoughts into different topics.

Also wowie 5th post in a decade, thats pretty legit.

Find one person who said the Canucks would have won the series if the reffing was fair. The complaints aren't about winning or losing the series. They're about f'ing up the game with bs calls.

Two questions:
1) Were the referees competent?
2) Does Kelly Sutherland have a history of acceptable conduct when officiating Canucks games?

Answer to both questions is clearly no.

Canucks need more heart & soul players - that's a given.

But one team getting 240% more PPs? The series wasn't even good hockey; it was a joke.

The Sharks had SEVEN PP's last night , including a double minor. Do you know that relates to SIXTEEN PP minutes. SIXTEEN. We had lass power play time the whole series. (We had 10 PP's)

I'm not the one to b1tch about reffing, but last night was pure horse crap.

I'm really not sure why this is happening to Vancouver Every series we play in since 2009, our opponents have more power plays. Maybe there is some under the table business going on here, but our series is actually the most lop sided officiating in the leauge right now. Sharks had 130% more powerplays then we did.

"I haven't been a supporter of the Canucks for long. Mainly because firstly I knew nothing about NHL GL and secondly ESPN America only started showing NHL 3 years ago. I was unattached to any team when I first started watching although I could easily have gone for the Philadelphia Flyers as my home team which I supported in my youth and for 20 years was the Fife Flyers."

Obviously you have zero clue what momentum means in hockey... go play at any competative level and come back when you learn how momentum affects hockey games and how penalities and non-calls influence momentum.

Blaming others is what we do nowadays as a society.

Take ownership and rise above? No way. Too hard.

I think it's also learned helplessness; everything we did led to a penalty/bad result so we felt that no matter what we did we'd be screwed.

Nobody is blaming the Refs for our defeat. We are blaming the refs for poor reffing. Which part of this don't you understand?

I agree.

But I am one of them that thinks that it might've been different... we could still be in the series if it wasn't for the reffing.

Yeah. 3 one-goal games incl. 2 OT games in a series where one team gets twice as many PPs. It was way closer than 4-0 in reality.

Yup, I actually feel these two teams were quite evenly matched and other than the Schnieder meltdown all the games were quite close. A pp or even not being short handed in some key points throughout the series would have dramatically changed the look and feel of this series.

You might be correct. But officiating with honesty and integrity is what every team deserves in every league, from the lowest beer league to the Olympics, regardless of the score or the differences in abilities.

That was a garbage effort on the PP - I agree. But they made up for it with a great 3rd period.
