Something like that would be great, but I don't think that this was a big enough deal.
Was that Staal holding Carter's stick and Carter getting called for hooking in game 2 of 2008-09?
That call cost the Flyers victory in the game, and if the Flyers have it tied 1-1 going back to home ice, who knows how that series ends. The Penguins go on to win the Stanley Cup, but if they lose that series, they can't win the Cup. How's that for cause and effect?
People think, "Oh, it's only one game or it's only one point."
How many points less would it have caused us to miss the playoffs last year?
All I'm saying is that I concur officiating will always have an element of human error, but there are definitely some things that need to be looked at.
There are problems within the officiating core of the NHL that dive way beyond the realm of human error.
