Another April, another disappointing playoff series. But this time, this team was the most talented in the league, had the most individual season ticket holders in the NHL, was playing against a team that they matched up well against during the season, and was favored by some to win the Stanley Cup. And lest we forget Peter Forsberg, who came here because he thought we ...

Duck Reaction

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
People have been jumping all over Duck's fans for complaining about the officiating. I don't recall anyone from the Ducks team complaining after game 3, though their frustration during the game was obvious. Bryan Murray, Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley, etc. were complaining to the press about the officiating after each of the first 2 games. Isn't it amazing that there have no ...
Dear Sirs, We have a great game. You have spent your careers and lives in service to that belief. It is your responsibility and sacred duty to do everything and anything in your power to ensure that NHL officiating remains beyond reproach. We have a great game and we need to keep it that way. The fans of tomorrow depend upon it. I "bet" David Stern thought he h...

NHL Officiating

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Oh the NBA is crooked! That's a surprise! We've all seen Koharski and McCreary at their finest. How can you tell me these guys or on the up and up? If anyone can blatantly miss penalties or just make them up, it's these two. Maybe the NBA Snafu will open some eyes. Or, maybe not. Right Colon!

Pens Lose to Devils

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Hey pens fans, The Pens lost 2-1. Malkin had the only Pens' goal and he was unassisted. This was a tough night for the Pens. Unfortunetly for the Pens, Brodeur played a great game. There were a lot of shots that could have beaten a lesser goalie. The officiating tonight was something that was questionable, at times. I am not one for official bashing, but there were ...

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...

Game 6 vs. Game 7

Posted Tuesday | Comments 1
I gotta say. I've tried to be relatively fair with my opinion of officiating in this series. Despite calls for "the fix" by ESPN, I tried to believe that things would work out somewhete fairly. There was definately time where the games went in the Flyers direction and we took advantage of it. However, I ahd a serious problem with Scottie Upshall's "diving" penalty las...

My Rant!!

Posted Wednesday | Comments 2
I don't know about anybody else, but the officiating so far this season has been absolute crap!! I have Center Ice, and I've been to a number of games this season, and it has been absolutely horrendous!! So what's different this season and why am I complaining about it now? Because tonight, there were two critical calls that cost the Sharks the game against Nashville, a...
I'm fed up!! After the Sharks loss last night to Nashville, that could have very easily been a win had the refs done their freaking job right, something has to change! This game just happens to be the last straw. I've been watching a number of games this season since I have Center Ice, and it just as bad throughout the league. In every game I've seen there have be horrendo...

What Message?

Posted Monday | Comments 0
I didn’t need the first few playoff games to learn that the NHL needs some officiating changes and a better policy on disciplining players. I have said numerous times going back through past instances whether it be Todd Bertuzzi or Alexander Perezhogin, that we need consistent strict rules on suspensions. The memo sent out this postseason was that the NHL did not want ...
One of my favourite youtube videos of all time was Larry Robinson coming back on to the ice during a preseason beach clearing brawl to find Dave Schultz and beat the snot out of him. Like all hockey fans, violence has always been a part of the game for me and I am just as guilty as anyone for condoning and encouraging it. Having said that, I have to admit that a few ye...
Before I write this post, I will ask you to put these concepts in order of importance. - Flawless Officiating - Fun to play - Entertaining - Profitable Now you might ask: "why can't we have them all?" like any other competitive half-wit, but the truth is, prioritizing any one of these values may end up taxing the others. So now there is a rising obsession i...
