Default WCF - Blues vs. Sharks

1st game Saturday

This should be a close one, I'd think

Sure looked like it, and they read the actual rule and it sure fit the scenario. Must be they thought it wasn't off the "hand" but off the wrist or arm. Not sure that's a meaningful difference.

If they'll review and call off goals because a player who had nothing to do with the play was half a second too slow getting on the bench then certainly they should be able to review and overturn a hand pass.

“I really didn’t get an explanation,” said Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo, “other than, I guess, there’s a different set of rules for two different teams.”

Athletic writer Scott Burnside overheard two Blues staffers talking. “What are you going to do?” one asked another. “Vegas got fucked before. And tonight we got fucked.”

And we are only talking about the obvious missed calls, not the rule changes that the officials have put in place.

I think they thought it hit off his stick after he swatted it down. The puck bounced right when he swung his stick at it. Honestly don't blame the refs for missing it if that was their interpretation. To hear the hue and cries of people I thought it must have been a blatantly intentional hand pass, but it wasn't. Please don't turn this into the NFL where we review every goal forever before we can celebrate it.

I can see how the refs missed it in real-time but I think with the other stuff that can be reviewed that such an important goal/non-goal should also be review-able.

Absolutely. As has been said, they can call off a goal for a 3" 'offside'... A disputed, game-winning goal, in OVERTIME, should certainly be reviewable.

Officials make mistakes. However this has gone way beyond mistakes. We have seen a couple of series decided by official errors costing teams millions of dollars. And again, this doesn’t even discuss the unofficial rule changes implemented by the league or officials.

The NFL had a similar situation occur during their playoffs. It was one mistake and was somewhat addressed.

Fans have always questioned the bias of officials. However, we are now at a point where players and management are openly questioning the integrity of the game. The league not only doesn’t address it, but they hide from the situation. (Other than fining the players who are critical of officials). Add that to the NHL entering into an agreement with MGM to share information with casinos and the fact that San Jose and Boston have been the beneficiaries of these repeated errors. The league on the edge of moving to a very dangerous situation that threatens the very future of the game.

Better officials would be an obvious start. But one would think the league would already be trying to do that. Making officials meet the press after a game would be a way to make them more accountable. Having the league acknowledge errors is another. But it may take something more radical like removing the referees from the ice or having one referee and an off ice official.

I haven’t been watching, because I think the league has become a joke. I’m this far away from walking away from my season tickets.

My personal favorite is those great tweets they send out after every review with absolutely no explanation about whey the decision was made to confirm or over turn. How clueless does the NHL need to be to think that those provide any value at all?

The NFL has at least made an effort to have their on field officials explain why a certain call is being made. In the NHL you see a guy completely bowl over a goalie and then they send a tweet saying that the goal was upheld because it was determined that there was no goalie interference as if that clarifies the situation.

I am also kind of sick of the whole thing and may not renew my STM after next season if things don't change. I don't mean the Lightning need to win, I mean the NHL officiating and league office decisions (suspensions, etc) need to stop being a complete clown show.
