Well see how long you 2 last in the playoffs.. Your disasater of penalty calls and bogus goal calls against the Islanders, and turning your back on Sabres penalties, you have only you 2 to blame for the onslought of garbage you two got hit with in the last minute of the game. Its a simple thoguht.. either call the Campoli play, or don't call the Robataille play.. By ignori...

NHL Clean? Not So Fast.......

Posted Wednesday | Comments 1
MLB -- Steroids -- Barry Bonds again named by Balco chemist NBA -- Gambling and dictating the outcome of games -- Tim Donaghy NFL -- Animal Cruelty -- Michael Vick NHL -- CLEAN AS A WHISTLE!.....maybe? The limelight on professional sports has shifted significantly these last few months from on-the-field to off it. Unfortunately, the incidents away from the [i]offic...

Minorhockeybuzz

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
This website for the most part is about the NHL, which makes sense, but the site is called hockeybuzz not nhlbuzz, so I'm gonna go ahead with this. I'll start by saying that I have officiated minor hockey in Canada (Alberta) for the past 10 seasons. And while I enjoy every single game I do, there are always things that bother me. The big one being lack of understandin...
In [url=http://my.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?user_id=37614&post_id=3791]an earlier posting[/url], I eluded to the fact that poor officiating in the UK wasn't all the fault of the men in stripes, but in fact was mostly due to the system in which they work in. In this short (well, as short as I ever get) piece, I am going to try and explain why. Referees over here do th...

Stars at home in San Jose!

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Long time, no write...but I had to throw in my two cents on the ridiculous non-call last night and the recaps from the San Jose Sharks Staff (website) and the AP. What a joke!!! Rivet's hit on Morrow at the end of the 1st was a clear-cut, textbook boarding penalty. Yet, neither official made the call and at least one of them was starring straight at them! I thought one...

Game 3...Flyers/Habs

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Thank god for DVR...because I got to see all of the important stuff... Let me just start off by saying I'm sick of hearing that the flyers are dirty. At the beginning of the season a couple players made some bad decisions. It cost us big time. Game over. We did our time. It's the end, and I don't want to hear about it anymore b/c it's irrelevent. The Flyers are ...
There's some sarcasm in the title. I know why there are so many officials but I no longer know why they are all on the ice. Maybe the NHL should consider putting an official either between the penalty boxes or between the benches. What, why? If you watch as much hockey as me you've probably noticed how manytimes the officials get in the way of the play or can't bel...

The problem with Bettman

Posted Friday | Comments 0
The NHL should be embarrassed by their officiating crews of the past two seasons. There is no reason for there to be 12 hooking penalties in a game. Hockey is supposed to be played 5-on-5, and fans don't want 30 minutes worth of power plays every night. I realize this is their half-assed strategy to add more scoring to the game, but it was fine before. There is nothing wro...
Okay I'll admit right away that I have not been able to watch all the games of the post season, but I have seen enough to make me want to write this. We all know by now that the post season is a time when things get ridiculous in the National Hockey League. Emotions are running high, play gets more physical and tempers start to flare. If you thought the officials had a ...
I don't know why, but it seems like in every playoff game this year I've seen at least one goal called off because the referee was not in position to make the call or seen a team called offsides by a line judge trying to catch up or who got in the way of a clearing attempt. Tonight it was Detroit's Marian Hossa who scored the game-tying-goal with just over a minute left...

Why Zebras, Why?

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Why can they not stay out of the game? The Flyers have played three entertaining games this past week. The first game was a great matchup between two red hot teams, Montreal vs. Philadelphia. So guess what happens during a 1-0 game in the second period, the zebras show up and call 19 penalties in the last 2 periods to ruin all the flow of a great game. Next Philly pla...
