Seriously, wtf?? At some point the league needs to address this issue, they are incompetent, inconsistent, and just plain awful 90% of the time. Tonight was really a piss off, weak calls on detroit and a lot of missed calls on the Ottawa goons

Who cares? Usually fire needs even more fire as a response. Bloody them like the Islanders did against Pittsburgh some years ago. If this team will finally go the bigger nastier route the game would have some positive aspects to it. Call MacT and ask him what he wants for Gazic and BigMac and tell them both everything is allowed, some good old fashioned hockey next week

I believe since hockey doesn't get the national coverage other sports get, the referee call's aren't as heavily scrutinized and because of that the league isn't forced to make any changes.

Either way the refs have been bad since the lockout, I'm kinda used to it.

Yep because 22 years in a row of making the playoffs and 4 stanley cups has been built on picking up players nobody has heard of.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

They have progressively gotten worse since the end of the previous lockout...it's amazing how much ticky tacky crap gets called vs actually attempting to make a hockey play and committing a penalty...

As Mick said tonight on Kronners penalty...perfect chance to take both players as they both committed 2:00 infractions, but they only decide to take one.
HEY HEY HOCKEYTOWN!

2 blatant penalty shots called as 2 minute minors, a double minor high stick when the ref didn't even check for blood...
Also blatant missed calls as well

Refs were in playoff mode today. Just completely inconsistent and overshadowed the game. One thing I'd like to point out is as the game went on the ref would take a good 20seconds before dropping the puck - drove me insane. Just get on with the game and don't make it about you.

Bigmac is probably a modern Probert and the most feared enforcer in this game most people have at least a ne him. Also, names like Koccur, McCarthy or Downey should ring a bell.

Pasha is out with concussion no suspension is going to make up for that, unless Neil Spezza and or Karlson are out with one too.

There won't be a suspension. The NHL isn't going to hang its refs out to dry with a play that was seen by refs. The next step would be Toronto calling up during breaks and awarding powerplays for missed calls. Missed calls happen. Get used to it.

It still would be nice to have that one guy. (Jordin Tootoo, wish granted)

Hey! I've heard of Big Mac! He spent a season or so here in Muskegon years ago. Sadly, he's only played 13 NHL games in the last 5 seasons (in the AHL right now). Big boy, knows how to fight. His balance isn't the best, but sufficient. Nice guy too.

It's not like it would be unprecedented.  Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Jesse Winchester got a suspension for his 11/7 elbow on Chris Kelly.  No penalty was called in the game on Winchester.  I believe there are other examples, but this is the most recent (and comparable) I could think of.

Oh nice, yeah I've seen clips from him doing radio shows and hunting (sadly not Neil for now), but one the ice when this guy isa ON he is really on - like a Hulk - nobody can stop him and thats exactly the type of statement I want to see. The good thing is, if McKee keeps his development up the guy will be a monster in 2 years.
