Kelowna vs Kootenay

Discuss ... their is a poll on this series up for the next couple of days on the poll board ... I hope Kelowna wins ... the way they've been taken to the limit the first two series has me a tad worried, but I believe their experience will pay off for them

I tuned in just as Palin was saying "that's f***ing bull****". They tried to show a replay, but it showed nothing. Might have very well been the case.

well, I've got to bet that this ref won't be reffing this series much more ... the Rockets color guy is letting the ref have it

Yeah, a Rockets colour guy knows exactly what any WHL supervisors in the building are thinking.

Besides, a puck hitting a high stick is something any one of the three officials can blow down if they see it.

The Rockets had the original penalty before the mini line brawl happened. That's why Kelowna is short right now.

Herman has been around for a long time, and he did the 2004 WJHC in Finland. I'd be surprised if he doesn't get the finals.

Ofukany must have said something about Dawes mother, and the fact 3 refs can't see a highstick when the puck is played above your shoulder is very hard to phathom ... Derek Price done for the night

Like it or not, officials are not perfect. If they missed it, s*** happens. I know that seems like a non-chalant attitude, but that's the only way you can look at it.

Although I didn't see the play, if it was close to his shoulder height, they might have judged it to be a legal play.

well then its time to hold refs/linesmen to higher standards, period and if they are reprimanded on site and corrected on site by an off ice official, then so be it, because a) the players deserve it and b) the paying fan deserves it as well

Might as well force the same attitude with players who miss a pass, turn the puck over, goaltenders who let out a juicy rebound, etc.

In a league where even full-time officials, like Derek Herman, have other day jobs to make a living (Herman is a teacher), holding them to such standards is pointless. If you want to reprimand these guys "on-site", they might as well quit. It's not like they need to officiate to make a living. I'm not saying grave enough mistakes should not be subject to some kind of penalty, but it should not be, and is not public news. That's because the game is about the players. The public does not care for news about officials.

They're all there because they love the game just as much as the players and coaches. They train just as hard as the players, and they put just as much effort into their games as the players and coaches do theirs....and just like the players and coaches, they make mistakes sometimes. The biggest problem in the players/coaches/fans vs. officials "war" (for lack of a better term) is the expectations of perfection from the officials. It will never happen.

He was the #2 star in game #2 a game the Rockets LOST ...

Tonight he was the #3 star ... Comeau was a monster tonight (point on every Rocket goal 1g-3a)

He got crunched by Shea Weber and then left the game, I'm guessing it was a concussion, he look dazed after the hit.

Yeah Weber hit him into the boards and received a 5 min major and was ejected. The penalty was called by the linesman and wasn't called to after the play had stopped. It was a questionable call. Hopefully Dawes will be back for the next game.

Yea what a real classy player, lets knock out the most dominating player on the Ice who has 3 Goals, and 6 assists in his last 6 games with an illegal hit/cheap shot.

yea and I'm sure Dawes doesn't play dirty every once in a while ... even with that 10 minute misconduct & major boarding Shea was the #1 star, Shea in his last 11 games has 11 points ... I didn't know goons averaged a point per game in the playoffs
