The NHL is a joke. Sad but im starting to lose interest in my favorite sport.
Every game that goes by that we see more of this s***, I start to care less and less. Not just against the Wings (although thats been a bit of a trend) but in general. This has to change

We as a collective should stop being bothered by refsf****** up calls. It happens all the time, we should be used to it by now. It's like complaining about the fact it snows in winter. Well, duh.

Well, the Wings now see which way the wind is blowing and will have to adjust their game accordingly in the second. Play physical, but play smart; don't give the refs an excuse.

Dude, the refs don't need an excuse. How long you been watching the NHL? They will just call something if they want to. It can be blatently not a penalty and they'll call it.

It's sof****** aggravating. And I am not just saying that becuase I'm a wings fan. They do that with all teams. The refs deliberately don't call things sometimes, whethere it's because they think they are calling too many penalties or whatever reason. In my opinion the league needs to make the refs as OBJECTIVE as possible. You see it, YOU CALL IT.

Unbelievable.

The wings are playing very well. I hope they continue to take it to Nashville. We'll win if we keep that play up.

I thought the Wings did good. They actually played physically. Ericsson only had two terrible giveaways, which is a new record low for him for a period.

The Homlstrom wave-off+penalty was bulls***. We've seen people SIT ON TOP OF HOWARD, INJURE HIM, ANDf****** SCORE WHILE ON TOP OF HIM and have the goal count.

Yes, Holmstrom made some contact with the goalie, but the goalie made contact first.

The "boarding" penalty was bulls***, Erat 1) had the puck 2) wasn't facing the boards 3) was facing the man checking him but had his head down


The Wings needs to just keep on doing what they're doing. If the refs continue to screw them over there's just nothing they can do, you can't control a jobbing by the refs.

Wings playing over aggressive and it's back firing.

The no goal call was legit
Their goal was legit

Wings need to lower their emotions just a little bit so it doesn't get the better of them which it currently is IMO.

And the NHL wonders why they're 4th out of the 4 major sports leagues?

I disagree.

If you want to argue the non-goal that's cool.

But I don't think they're being overly aggressive. I love it, and I think they need to keep it up. We got scored on because of an unfortunate 5 on 3 (no gripe on that, the ref had to call that 2nd penalty, more annoyed with the first penalty).

I LOVE this out of the wings. We usually see this kind of play only in the playoffs when they're on.

We'll be ok if we keep this up.

The abby call was the only questionable one this period, right? The replay clearly showed homer elbowing rinne - I'm assuming that's why the refs called it. How else have the refs screwed us this period besides the abby call?

Maybe the league should do the intelligent thing and either re-train them or fire them and replace them with more competent beings.

I still can't believe Lupul's goal last Saturday, when he sat on Howard, was ok, and our's was called back.


Yup, it is sad. It'd be fun to play the two goals side by side and ask ourselves "Which one of these goals was called back for goaltender interference and also got issued a penalty?"

No their goal was not legit. There should never have been a 5 on 3 penalty because Abby's hit was completely clean. The reffing in this league DISGUSTS me. Do yourself a favor and watch how many dirty hits the Preds get away with against the Wings, meanwhile the Wings get a penalty for everything they do and get a legit goal called off. The refs are the only reason the score is not 1-0 Wings after one period. Pathetic.

Why this why that?

We are playing like we care. Refs took a goal away, let's move on here folks. Abby is the best player on the ice so far for us. I love him again :lol:

Better 2nd boys. Get it goin!!!!

This league disgusts me. A good goal waived off, and then call a penalty. And Abby throws a clean check, WITH THE PUCK THERE and gets a penalty. It's bulls***, that was probably the best period of hockey the Wings have played all year, and that's what we get.

In 2006, I watched the NBA become a joke as the Miami Heat were handed the title over Dallas by the officials. I haven't taken the outcome of an NBA game seriously since, and that was long before the Tim Donaghy scandal broke.

As I've said before, I'm beginning to feel the same way about the NHL. The league clearly mindf***s officiating to death. They seem to overreact to criticism and legislate "corrective" action that swings the pendulum too far the other way. Holmstrom plays on the edge in front of the goalie? Send a video to the officials and tell them to watch him extra-closely. Stats on prominent internet hockey forums show Detroit gets an edge in penalties for/against at home? Start "evening things out" at the Joe, even if the disparity is a reflection of Detroit outplaying its opponents and forcing opponents to take more penalties.

I don't have a problem with Abby's hit on Erat being called a penalty. I don't want opposing players to hit our guys like that. Those kind of hits can end careers.

Aye. Avoid all clean hits.
