no major penalties? What about when Perry started throwing punches at the end of the first? Hits to the head are pretty much a no-no, especially when the guy getting hit is facing the other way and doesn't see it coming.

Missed calls are a part of hockey and will be until we have robot refs some time in the future, but blatent things like that from hockey players that have reputations for douchey moves like that should NOT be allowed in an Olympic gold medal game.

Call it sour grapes all you want, but to say that Canada didn't get the better end of the officiating is ignoring a lot.

And let's remember that Dan Boyle didn't get a suspension for his very illegal slew footing that could have seriously injured Alex Semin a few games ago.

I'm not going to say the US would have won if the refs had been from a neutral country or if these refs had just made better calls, but the missed calls did not even out, and that had an effect on the game at some level.

When are you people going to figure out that the Canadians will always get the better end in the officiating because 80% of the officials are CANADIAN. Any day of the week watch an NHL game and it is so f***in obvious you gotta be blind to not see it.

So does he play with ericsson, lebda or meech?

With Babcock determined to play Lidstrom with Rafalski then I would put him with Ericsson on the 3rd pairing.

You need to calm down.

You're right, neither are earning their pay, I'm pretty sure I said that my first post, I'm just saying your 7.4 number is skewed.
