You don't think it's odd that the Habs are the most penalized team in the league and barely have any fighting majors? Look at the nature of the penalties...all SOFT penalties....hooking, tripping, slashing, holding, etc.

I'd rather worrying about the things my team can fix than hoping and praying the reffing changes.

Brett frigging Lebda scored last night....Bozak scored 2 man?
Yeah, their is no bias against the Habs' in terms of penalties, just like their is no favoritism for the Pens (which we always hear about) as they are 1st in terms of times shorthanded, and Habs' are second. They take penalties because of the reasons you've said, and their have been plenty of penalties due to poor discipline as well, plus several too many men on the ice calls. These things add up over time, and when the PK isn't great and the goaltending isn't great, you spot 5 to the Leafs.
