Yikes Therrien... Not happy with White at all. Said everything was under control until a certain individual
took a penalty. Also said it's the third time he did this. First time, he had a talk with him. Second time, we sent him a message by scratching him. Third time... He better get his act together.
Tying goal. If that was a road team taking away a home team's win instead of a home team getting a tie, does it stand? Not one chance in a thousand, IMO. If it's the home team tying it up...boy, even then it's one in ten that the ref actually loses sight of the puck and not for a split-second (as he clearly did) AND there's a guy planted fully in the crease AND the goalie gets shoved into the net and the goal isn't waved off instantly, much less called off after review. Video replay, how does that work?
I have very few people on ignore. He's one of them though. If you're going to choose somebody to ignore, Patofqc is a very good choice.
Yeah he did. And he'll pay for it.
Let's not lose our minds over this though.
I'm just absolutely mystified at the level of idol worship a 4th liner continues to garner when he's actively cost our team 3 points so far this year...all in the name of some mindless, ill-conceived pursuit of "toughness". While we try to run actual hockey players like Plekanec and Cole out of town. It's completely beyond me.
In one game, a player barely touches the keeper, who's not even in the crease, goal gets disallowed.
Tonight, Ott is almost in the net, I mean, his skates are on the goal line! Budaj is shoved in the net, the puck is under his pads, Vanek pokes it, goal. Ya, lots of sense!
White wasn't disciplined and he needs to be smarter, but I don't blame him. His penalties were very harsh. No need for 4min, and you could have called Ott for going low. I mean, the refs know who the heck Ott is right?? He isn't this innocent player. Also, Brennan who was sitting on the bench actually tried to grab White and touched him. That should have been a penalty too.
I hate blaming the refs, but come on..
As for our players, the kids definitely need more ice time. More of Eller and Gallagher, less of Cole and DD. And I love Diaz, but enough of him being used more than PK, that's ********. PK is being used as a #5-6 D, that makes 0 sense.
