#2402327 WCQF - (6) Sharks vs. (3) Canucks

Posted by evileyeball on 12 May 2013 - 02:10 AM

I'm a diehard canucks fan who came here through some random google search.

 

Thank you wings fans for being far classier about the state of officiating in this league

Also I must say You have a good former canuck on your team.

 

As for the people saying Kessler is like a Kinder surprize egg, Oh wait those are banned in USA I better make another analagy, Fine a Normal egg, and that Deep inside there is a Yoke that is a good player sorrounded by a white of dving yapping etc

I've seen him over the years go from much much worse to what he is now.

He kinda reminds me of Dr Bruce Banner, He has one gear he uses most of the time and then he has BEASTMODE
I'd hate to lose him

Anyway I found some stats another canuck person put together on the reffing in our series

 

I thought you might find it interesting seeing as how I could see the sharks being handed the series they played against you guys over the last couple years as also plausable.

    May 1 - Tor/Bos

    May 7 - Van/SJ
    PPs: Van - 3, SJ - 7
    PIM: SJ - 6, Van - 24

Game with the greatest PP disparity: Van/SJ
Team with the most PP opportunities: SJ
Most penalized team: Toronto (NOTE: Toronto receive 2 misconducts totaling 20 PIM, and still only ended up with 15 more PIM than Vancouver.)

It seems pretty freaking amazing to me that 4 different sets of refs gave SJ more PP opportunities than any other team in games they've worked during these playoffs thus far, especially given all of the fights, cheap shots that led to suspensions and other such mayhem that has been pretty common in some of those series but our games had none of.

The PP disparity might make sense if other teams were getting a lot more PIM than Vancouver but the PPs were just a little more equal due to both teams being penalized for dirty stuff, but that's doesn't seem to be the case. Vancouver was the most penalized teams in every ref pairing's games except Lee & Sutherland and that's only because of 2 misconducts received by Toronto which put them 15 minutes above us. Without those 2 penalties, we would have still gotten more. And remember, all of our penalties were 2-minute minors. Even with those misconducts, the PP opportunity disparity in that game was only 2. The PP disparity in our game 4 was double that.

How does all of that not come across as suspicious?

 

 

I can't find my source on this right now but when I do find the source posters name I will come back and give the credit due to him.

 

 

 

Anyways GO WINGS, You are now my team in the west this year, I can't stand CHI or LAK or ANA,
