In the last minute or two Ferraro said the Oilers bench was really giving it to the referees.

Penalties are just way down league wide right now.

I don't know what the deal is, but there are tons of teams only getting 1 or 2 PP's a game.

In a way I'm glad to hear it but you cant win that battle. Beaking the refs will come back to haunt you.

There have been 4 PPs in the Calgary/Anaheim game... for each team.

What a boring, frustrating, waste of two and a half hours.

Corrupt ********.
That's ****ing sickening. You know something is ****ed up when the guys who are paid to be unbiased pull that kind of ****.

Rangers also got 0 PPs tonight. Ottawa got 1.

They aren't calling things anymore, and it's not surprising to see teams like Phoenix and St Louis coincidentally rocketing up the standings.

Detroit still got 5, but what else is new.

Time to put the kids back together. Regardless who is on the second line, they are most likely not going to contribute, anyway. We are a one-line team. Might as well put our best players together.

League is probably sick of the games being decided by PP's.

It's one thing to call less penalties.

It's another to miss blatant muggings.

*Conspiracy hat on*

The NHL has indirectly increased the injury rate within the NHL by speeding the game up through the penalizing of hooking and holds. This is a trial period, where the refs are letting the holding and hooking penalties go to see if the game is safer, for one, and to see how the game fares as a whole. In short, **** them.

Agreed, I thought he was dominant and probably won't get credit for it because it was such a crappy game overall. I don't think he missed a single pass tonight.

I've wondered this too. Another reason might be to discourage diving.

Renney's starting to look like MacT:
- Can't motivate the team worth a damn
- Making weird weird line decisions
- Constant line shuffling, no patience

Hall gets sticked in the face, Eberle gets sticked in the face, Smyth gets popped in the nose, couple guys got yanked down...

Didn't realize the refs were bloody children. I have to apologize to Narnia, she was bang on with the refs. I bet they wont face a single bit of discipline for their obvious corruption.

Tencer tweeted that the oil have had 19pp's in the last 10 games. Less then 2/game. Penalties are down sure but that's flat out ********* and bias. Do your ******* jobs you ******** *****es. Waaaaah the oilers complained! Um news flash. If you're a ref or a dentist, everyone hates you. Get over it.

Really? We have a few posters (one in particular) making these wild accusations for a couple of years and they get ridiculed. Bob says it, and it's the truth? I don't buy it. There are certain realities, like "veteran teams" getting veteran calls, but I don't believe the refs huddled together before this game and said, "let's get them son's a *****es tonight!"

What game were you watching? Hemsky was probably one of the best players on the ice tonight. Keep Hall-RNH-Hemsky together and put Smyth back up with Gagner and Eberle. We really need a 2nd line LW and a 3rd line RW.
