You can cross check all you want in this days NHL but the one thing you cannot do is put your glove on someone. Even just resting it on them draws a penalty. You have to know what will and wont get called in the NHL these days and Franzen just did something stupid. And if you think Franzen doesnt dive your delusional. For how strong of a guy hes supposed to be hes on the ice quite a damn  bit after contact.


If you could cross check all the time, Smith wouldn't have gotten a penalty.

"He usually shows up when the game is over and tries to be the hero. Puts his cape on and goes and flies out there." ~ Franzen

Oh please, if the refs suck they should be called on it. Just like Franzen and Howard get called out when they suck.

 

True but its funny how everyone is only complaining about the refs in the 3 games the Wings lost.......

Its sad to see everyone blaming the refs every game. Loser complain about officiating. Winners play through it.

DId you say the same after the Penguin's series in 09, when the league basically made an executive decision that sid needed his cup for marketing reasons? That was even worse because the off-ice disciplinary procedure was changed to make it more competitive. That was far worse than this, because it was decisions made in the cold light of day that broke their own rules. This is just the usual inconsistent NHL officials making things up as they go along and slightly favouring the NHL's preferred team. Its deeply frustrating because it is essentially a lack of impartial professionalism, but it happens to varying degrees in favour of certain teams every year. When we had the hall of fame roster, we got the calls in 02 in the SCF.

Not true. Read the GDT for game 1.

Go cry about it then.  Maybe other people see things differently than you do.  Oh, that's right, what you think is always right and if anyone else thinks something else, they are wrong.

as if the Wings are playing well enough to win this game.  Yes the refereeing sucks, but the refereeing isn't why this series is 3-1.  Get a grip people. the Wings just aren't that good.

Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

If you truly believe there was a in league conspiracy to get the Penguins the Cup I have a tin foil hat to sell you.

The Franzen of the 2008 playoffs is long gone and to think we chose him over Hossa. I wonder who is to blame for that one? Could it be the same guy who gave up #1 pick for Quincey? Or the guy who really wanted Tootoo? Or the guy that picked up Weiss? Or the guy that said we like Kindl and Lashoff? Anybody seeing a pattern?

Franzen signed first, I don't think he was picked over Hossa.  I dont think they wanted to gamble to see if Hossa would re-sign and end up losing both.  Truth be told though, Hawks had a worse cap situation than the Wings at the time and still managed to sign Hossa.  Holland worries too much about depth, depth guys can be easily picked up.  Legit stars are much harder to come by.

We have one of if not the most spoiled fanbase in the sport.  I can't say I'm surprised at the whining/bitching/moaning/complaining.

A simple look back in the pages would reveal the crying is coming from those about the officiating being biased.

If I remember right Holland wanted Franzen first and then wanted to wait for the offseason to offer Hossa a contract. That in my book is choosing one over the other.

Why do the two have to be mutually exclusive. 

 

We are the weaker team, we deserve to be losing the series AND we 're getting screwed by the refs for good measure. Is that co-existence impossible?

We all know that Boston/Pitt/MTL are the teams they are.  Most hockey fans know it. 

 

But we haven't put forth an effort deserving to win this series either.

Wrong. All the complaining after game 2 and 3 was no effort. Good try

And, they are just as entitled to their opinions as you or I.  As I was saying, if it saddens you, go get a tissue.  They come on here and whine about the refs.  You come on here and whine about them.  It's not that much different to me.

the refs aren't out there to screw the Wings by decree.  They may suck at the job, but getting screwed implies intent.  Get a f***in grip.  Good teams find a way to overcome.  The Wings aren't that good - they'd be losing this series if it was 5 v 5 all the time too.

As stupid as that two minute span was, the refs did not cost the Wings this series. A goal or two sure, but they still don't score enough. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2
