Was he always like this, even for you guys? Seems like a goalie that needs confidence to do well...hopefully just because he is still so young, especially for a tendy.
You forgot the 3rd type:
Injured

Typical NHL joke of refs not helping.

Yet Jagar didn't get an extra 2 when he was swinging his stick around and whining on his call…

Yep....that was a bad bad call in OT....essentially handed the Flyers a win.

Oh well...the FBC will be happy.

Those last five are since Giguere spelled him for three, right? It's either an endurance issue or he tries to do much when he hits some tough spots and spirals.

That's the risk you run when you put Getzlaf on the point. That team misses Visnovsky a lot (slow start or not).

The BS High Sticking call that gave the Flyers a 5v3 didn't help either. How the ref thought it was excessive is beyond me.

Looked like a good call to me. The 10 min versus 2 min decision is the referees prerogative. Getzlaf certainly deserved one of them.

The more concerning thing to me is Jagr now has as many goals as Ovechkin

It's so funny when people claim Getzlaf is a better Center than Backstrom.

How does a conversation you can't hear LOOK like a good call?


The 2 and the 10 should have been the call. The 4 min PP in OT was a death sentence...

He's better than Eric Fehr...that's all that matters.

He doesn't make that second call at all after letting Jagar act like a little kid.

Do you realize that you're making your own interpretation of the same conversation you cannot hear? In fact, you're essentially agreeing with me that Getzlaf deserved the second penalty, so I fail to see your point.

Well, you can make the case that they never get Backstrom if they have him (either aren't in a position to draft him or don't take him).

If you're trying desperately to rationalize it for the sake of your own sanity, of course.

Nope...to quote Mothra...YOU'RE WRONG.

If Jagr didn't deserve one in regulation for showing up the ref, swinging his stick and waving his hands complaining at the ref, Getzlaf certainly didn't deserver a double minor in OT. Call the games even or get a new job. Classic NHL refs....want to be bigger than the game.

Actually...I just love bringing up more of McPhee's blunders....especially this one.

Im just glad we have the young players from the last 4-5 drafts that we do.

Right...

You can't simultaneously contend he deserves a 10 minute misconduct but doesn't deserve the 2 minute unsportsmanlike. Either penalty would have been sufficient. You can argue that he didn't deserve either one, but based on his comments after the game even he knows he did.

Sounds like someone is just upset their darling Boudreau lost the game.

Again...seems like you don't understand the critical junctures of sporting events where the good refs let the players play instead of practically handing one side the win. Anything to keep your hate alive....have a good night.
