tried playing it, clearing the cache, and with a different browser, but it's not working. i was in the school library before, but now in class on the school wireless. maybe that's why...
thanks for trying though!
It's a professional league with professional players, but for some reason the refs are not professional. Most of them work somewhere else too and ref part-time.
The biggest problem is their inconsistency during games and far too many suffer from a Napoleon-complex. They tried bringing in zero tolerance hockey some years ago but hte coaches complained too much so the refereeing officials caved. Now there's no clear line at all, evident in some international games (where they call more stuff) when Finnish league players take stupid hooking/obstruction penalties.
Better period for the Canadians. Interesting how the refs put the whistles away once the Finns start getting shady when it comes to the penalties. It has gone both ways to an extent though I'll acknowledge that. Rattie is done on the first line, guys missed a ton of glorious chances set up by RNH. Defense looks very soft, not impressed with Ouellet or Rielly. Starting to see why Hudon is loved by HC - very versatile. I can also see why he was a 5th rounder though because I'm not sure how his game will translate to the next level.
