Did you read the emails from the scandal? It had nothing to do with fixing games and everything to do with trying to oust a referee, Dean Warren, that Campbell didn't like. In fact there were excerpts from his email about how he didn't like a weak tripping call late in a game that influenced the outcome. Don't we as fans feel the same way? I think everyone prefers when the players and not the refs determine the winner.

 

This idea of teams being blackballed and conspiracy theories.... For there to be a conspiracy there has to be a plan with an intended outcome. You can say the conspiracy then was to fire Dean Warren as an official, although the Ontario Labour Relations board ruled in favour of the NHL concerning Warren's dismissal. You can't claim games were being fixed. Evidence concerning what was going on between Campbell and Walkom in no way supports that.

 

I don't think anyone disagrees that individual referees have personal biases towards certain players. It's pretty apparent and has been going on ever since the game was invented I'm sure. The Canucks had and have players that are impacted by this as does every other team in the league.

 

As I said before; only on CDC can complaining about officiating be taken to the extreme of a full blown conspiracy saga. It's a friggin' game. Relax and enjoy it for the entertainment it's intended to be.

You completely ignore the part where he calls a player "a little fake artist" and this part:

 

 

I know Murph and Kinger like [player] as a player but my view of him is this exactly…he puts his whining ahead of the game. I don't think this is a regular occurrence (…..getting screwed) and...exploded...over the disallowed goal. He may be uncontrollable by...and...as I think his frustration level has hit a high point. He hates officials as well. He is still pissed off at [referee] for a call he missed in the playoffs years ago as I remember him bugging Murph about it. Let's give him Warren and [referee] than (sic) he will really have something to whine about.

This shows him telling the director of officiating to assign a certain referee to a certain game because he wants to screw a particular player over. This is the type of person in charge.

I'd like to hear Baggins explain away the Colin Campbell e-mail scandal. It is clear evidence that the NHL vice president put direct pressure on officials (director of officials) because of an undesirable outcome from a game and also shows how certain players are regarded as "little fake artists" by the league brass

Boston - simply because people are butthurt that yes they got away with goonery vs us (and I can't deny it, heck if we got the same reffing Montreal did last year, maybe we'd have a cup. But at the end of the day, if you're up 2-0 in a series and have a game 7 at home (where you don't even show up), well you don't deserve it

 

I simply can't understand how people like you admit that if the reffing wasn't favoring the other team, we would have won the cup, but then go on to say how it was the teams fault for giving up the 2-0 lead.

Atlanta would have never been moved north of the border if not for the increase in the Valuation of the Canadian dollar. It was at parity when the team moved back. When the Jets moved south the dollar was at or near 65 cents.

Phoenix would have been almost assured of a move, if not for the City council to approval of huge concessions. Interesting note that the team gained a name chance, even though they did not move.....

The move of the Stars was purely cash, moving it to the 6th largest economical sector in the states. They only realized how much it damaged grass roots hockey much later in the US. Thus once again awarding a franchise to the hotbed of American hockey.

The move of Hartford to Columbus 8X times population. Not including nearby populations
Quebec to Colorado 5X population and currency almost double in valuation.



This is a fun topic. Something to keep us busy til training camp.
I forgot some of the other points and am too tired to tackle them at this point.

this guy knows whats up
