But he was just STANDING there.

Stuart didn't give the official a choice. That HAD to be called.
It was a shove to the shoulder.

It happens nearly after nearly every whistle.
Shoves, face washing...

Put it this way...

Buffalo leads 5-4, they have a PP, after the whistle Regehr pushes a guy like Ribeiro in the shoulder (F-in shoulder ffs) and he goes down like he was shot.

I guarantee you, you would not find a single poster here who'd say, "okay, Regher shouldn't have pushed him in the shoulder".

...

A. Push. To. The. Shoulder.

Not a punch, not caught to his helm straps and yanked him back and forth, not a face wash, not a hit...

A. Push. To. The. Shoulder.

At a crucial stage of the game...

You don't agree, that's fine.
I just think it was a really, REALLY weak call.
