That Penguins game was probably the most frustrating match I've ever had to watch as a Flyers fan. That Gagne goal was so obviously a goal that it was sickening. Carter was not offsides; It was entirely obvious as well. Some of those penalty calls vs. the Flyguys was an absolute embarrassment. The NHL is really disappointing me with their officiating. Anyone nonbias here that feels the same? I mean seriously it was pathetic.

Ok this is going to sound racist but it isn't meant to be, but look at where the players in the NBA/NFL come from that are getting in trouble for these sorts of things. They are coming from "the hood" being brought up in bad areas where doing illegal things is the norm (not saying everyone in the NBA/NFL or everyone who gets in trouble is from this situation, but most are). On the flip side, look at where hockey players come from. You pretty much have to have money to play hockey because it is so expensive. That is why there aren't too many good inner city hockey clubs and players are normally from the suburbs and such.

Not sure any of the penalties they took wasn't legit. Timonen interfered with Crosby, Coburn held Rupp. Those are penalties.

Just because you don't live in the inner city, doesn't mean you're not capable of their stereotypical behaviors. Eric Lindros was connected to Joey Merlino, a convicted mob boss in Philadelphia. Rick Tocchet was involved in an illegal gambling ring.

Sound like people who knew better because they were from the suburbs?

I enjoy drinking and smoking "herbs" but Im average joe. if I was being paid millions to be a professional something, i wouldnt do those things during the season. I mean it is illegal yes, and drinking CAN be illegal, but if you dont do anything to draw attention to urself u dont get caught, simple as that. But as a professional athlete your life is under such a microscope its just not worth doing it

It makes the NHL what they are - a league who holds their players to the highest of standards on and off the ice.

When was the last time someone in the NHL got arrested or suspended for smoking pot?
I just watched the video. I thought he actually went to the bench and did it. He was just yelling from the bench and did that. I do that all the time, never meant to be offensive. Really, NHL? Really?

That's a different kind of stupid. Guys like Gilbert Arenas bringing guns to the arena or Plaxico Burress shooting himself in the leg. Not that gambling (or whatever Lindros was doing) in some forms is any less illegal than guns and drugs, it is just that it is a different kind of crime. Crimes involving guns are far worse than gambling and in most cases completely stupid. Gambling isn't something that is going to turn heads and make some one say "What the hell were they thinking? They should be in jail!" Shooting yourself in the leg, bringing guns to the arena, etc is. I know those are two that just happened but there are plenty of examples. And not saying that all NHLers are saints and NFL/NBAers are criminals, I'm just saying that the guys getting in trouble from the NBA and NFL are brought up in a certain atmosphere that NHLers are not. You can't really dispute that (and of course I don't mean every NHLer was a rich kid and every NBA/NFLer was a poor kid in the inner city so please don't come back saying that that is what I meant by giving examples of rich basketball players and poor NHL players).

I think this proves that Carcillo is the closest thing to a Hanson brother that the NHL has

A different kind of crime is still a crime, especially when people involved could have gone to or are in jail. And an NHLer is supposed to be a saint, that's the whole image they're putting forth. "We're so intense and fierce on the ice, but off the ice we're regular Joe's pumping our own gas and shopping for groceries."

I know and I said that. I am just saying the types of crimes in the NHL are not the same types of crimes as the ones in the NFL/NBA.

I loved the majority of Dan's antics against the Leafs. The throat slash has always bothered me though. Not so much because I find it offensive or over the top, but rather because it's so ****ing unoriginal. You're better and much more entertaining than that Mr.Carskillo.

It's not about not smoking pot. If people here smoke pot, good for them. But if you're playing professional sports, you're not allowed to smoke pot. It's kind of as simple as that.

If you believe leagues are REALLY cracking down on pot smoking...you're kidding yourself.
