You know I get to watch bully teams break people's faces and the refs say "let the players decide." And then two of the softest lineups with two of the league's worst power plays meet and the refs suddenly decide to have a one-way whistle fest. Because the ferocious Habs were abusing the poor Hurricanes?

Habs could score 10 goals in the final 10 minutes and all I'll remember is this game and the NHL ****ing suck.

December 16th 2008. Montreal Canadiens @ Carolina Hurricanes.

The hockey game between these two teams was absolutely ruined by the following referees.

Frederick L''Ecuyer
Brad Meier

The penalties arose to 11 for the Canadiens and 0 (minus the penalty shot) for the Hurricanes. It is disgraceful to the game of hockey when referees fail to call blatant diving on the Carolina Hurricane''s fault. Most of all is disgraceful to not let these two teams play hockey.

These two referees acted as if they had blinders on each side of their eyes...

Regards,

Mitchell Stafiej

Dear NHL Officials,

I am currently a student at Saint Mary's University, coming from a low-income family and trying to make it on my own through loans, a part-time job at Sobey's and my savings. I purchased the Canadiens at Hurricanes "game" on RDS online for three dollars because of my love for the Canadiens and the game of hockey. Unfortunately the on ice officiating of Frederick L'Ecuyer and Brad Meier left me bankrupt of positive emotion for the game. The eleven straight penalty calls against the Canadiens while deliberately ignoring infractions committed by the Hurricanes and making the wrong on-ice call on the disallowed Andrei Markov goal were both giant disgraces.

I understand the job on the ice for the officials is not an easy one and before this game I had respect for the job you officials do. However, after watching tonight's debacle I find it very difficult to find any praise for an official of any kind after L'Ecuyer and Meiers "show" tonight. This is a black spot on the NHL and it must be addressed. Any thoughts I had entertained about going to Montreal to see the Canadiens live has been jeopardized by these two officials because if I'm going to spend my hard earned money I simply don't wanna run the risk of having my experience cheapened by blatant, sub-par, biased officiating.

Reguards,
Craig Burgoyne.

There we go.

Meier is a perfect idiot, he is the one that made this game degenerate, he called everything that was borderline in Habs defavour, he is the one that called the most part of the penalities and the most debatable ones.. Fred Lécuyer made the right calls, the most evident ones.. Thats Meier that made Lécuyer look bad, dont bash the young frenchy..

Congrats to the referee for giving me one of the most ridiculous gamer I've ever seen.

The few time that this game was 5vs5, Habs were dominating.

3 possibilities:

1-Meier hates the Habs..

2-Meier bet on that game

3-Meier volontary wanted (for some reasons) to make the young Lécuyer looks bad. (it was his first time he officiated a Habs game)

Habs 11 penalties Canes 2 penalties..


If the referee's do this for the rest of this season and 20 more years, it'll begin to even up a little!

This was such an ironic game. For years and years and years, Montreal have always seemed like they got favorism from officiating. ESPECIALLY in Montreal! God, every hockey fan knows that.

The numbers simply don't back that up at all. Last year was the first year in numerous season's in which we had more pp's than pk's. so it may seem that way but the numbers don't back that up at all. So either every other hockey fan is wrong or there perception of things is distorting reality. Look for yourself.

I'd say ive never seen anything like it but last year Carolina had 10pp's to 0 against someone, either against Washington or Florida.

Flyers fan here.

Just wanted to add a little something, I remember last season during the final week of regular season, the Flyers needed the Panthers to beat the Hurricanes in order to help them make the playoffs. I switched back and forth between that and the Flyers/Devs game, and there weren't as many calls as this one, but it was still pretty bad. The Hurridives were flopping all over the place.

http://www.nhl.com/ice/boxscore.htm?id=2007021213

There was only one penalty called against Carolina, but it wasn't counted because Florida scored on the delayed call. Even better was they still lost.

Arg I just wished they didn't give us a powerplay. 11-0 is more hilarious.

That penalty shot was the refs way of saying: we're even.

Somehow, in their feeble little minds.

Then the clock reset to zero and it was all Habs again.

Dispicable.

I'm not into the habit of complaining about referees, but that was beyond pathetic. Made the game a bore.

The calls on Tanguay and Lappierre (slash when the guy dives face first for the puck) were particularly awful.

Hopefully the Canadiens make an official complaint of some sort.

I felt a lot of those calls were legit, the Habs once again were getting out worked and taking some lazy penalties. But the Canes did have some nice diving going on, the one on O'Byrne was great, I would give 9.5 at least for that dive.

My 15 year old son's best friend is a Habs fan, so we always rag on him every game the Habs lose because he uses the excuse that the refs sucked that night. Of course, this sets him up for some razzing from my son and myself when I see him.

However, last night, my son and I watched the game, and honestly, we couldn't believe how inept the referees were last night. 10 PP's in a row to the Canes? Truly, that had to be a painful game to watch as a fan and for once, we're going to let my son's friend rant away about the refs as this time he has every reason to do so after that craziness. Let's hope those fools aren't officiating in the playoffs.

Complained. Even though I thought a lot of the penalties were deserved, you still cannot call 11 straight penalties while not penalizing the other team. Also, some of the diving that occurred was disgusting.
