just to be clear........ you are saying the NHL instructed ALL the ref's and linesmen to give the Pens preferrential treatment? To disrupt redwings momentum etc?


Mmm... Not exactly. They instructed the refs to keep the game competitive. But sure, the preference was going to go towards whoever was the "sexier" winner and Pittsburgh fought hard enough to be in the finals and give themselves that opportunity. That's just how it goes.

I used to think ideas like that were stupid. But when you see how the NBA operates and how Bettman has to keep the NHL competitive in order for the league to exist then it's understandable as to why they do such things. I'm not really trying to discount the Pens win. It's just the game and world we live in and you have to learn how to play it otherwise you lose.

Definition of icing - What the refs don't call when the Pens score the first goal in game 7. Hockeytown......just like the Cowboys are America's team. Give me a break. They even took the Cup to PNC Park today so the Tigers Players could see what it looks like up close. By the way, Tigers lost as usual. Sid the Kid for Pres!!!!

Yes, I saw that; there were lots of people dressed up as empty seats.
So, why did it take so long?

You want to blame something for the Wings loss, try this:



If any Penns fan were to see this thread, they would probably feel great about and laugh their asses off. I would if it were the other way. A bunch of spoiled whiney Wings fans who are even bigger sore losers than Crosby was last year.
Exzactly,I have been proud of us wings fans I thought we would never stoop to this.What happened to our pride as RED WINGS FANS.We are the most spoild fans in the NHL.WE have the best team around.I for one would rather be a Wings fan without the cup then any other teams fan with the cup.I am a Red Wing fan and I don't make excuses for loses.in the same way I don't care about the other teams fans excuses for their loses,I thought we did'nt make excuses for our team when they lose.When the Wings are in their grove even the refs can't stop them from winning.

If it's possible it can be done right away,If it's impossible it will take a little longer.

blink.gif Dude, Tigers have seen it up close 4 out of the 12 seasons... Oh I forgot, you are not aware that the same guy owns BOTH the Tigers and the Red Wings.... Of course that would require you to be a knowledgable fan. Now go home nd put your Jersey away until the Pens re in the playoffs again, because we all know you won't wear it until AT LEAST the foorball season is over... bandwangon=pens fans
