canadian fans did set off the fire alarm on the Finnish team hotel the night before the final not long ago.

Conspericy heck no! Its just very strange that a canadian game is reefed by bucks. There are great european refs as well. Im not informed how many percent is canadians on the IIHF, but some has gotten this right where they want it... because there are plenty great refs thats not canadian.

This just stupid from IIHF. Politics & Hockey religion.

If they are NHL refs that have had the experience of a high octane pressure game like the Stanley Cup final then I would be fine with that. Ray Scampinello used to be a regular one in the Cup final. Terry Gregson comes to mind. Bill McCreary. Even Kerry Fraser and despite his missed call in 1993 he was still very good. These guys were fair. The last thing in the world they wanted anyone knowing was which games they refereed. This is who you want for a game like this.

I'll ask the skeptics this question right here: Can you think of a time when an NHL ref compromised the integrity of an important game? I don't mean with a bad call, but with eventual proof that he was trying to throw the game? When you can come up with that, then Forsberg and co. have an excuse. But you want the best in the world for this.

The Russians have a lot to complain about, but poor refereeing is not one of them. If people watched the Russian team and thought they got hosed by a questionable call and that was the end of them then you really weren't paying attention. Forsberg seems like he has a built in excuse already in place. Would you rather have a Joseph Kompalla clone Pete?
I dident say the american ref did anything wrong? i just said the Russian wasent that happy about him big dif

First of all, any Olympic Games that decide to employ Tim Peel are immediately under suspicion, if not for bias, then for stupidity. Second, with all of the refs available throughout the world of hockey, why have any refs working their country's games at all? It is just dumb.

Was this not pre-set before the games started? That's usually the case isn't it? Therefore this could be a Sweden-Russia gold medal game and we'd have the same refs. The IIHF doesn't do any favours for Canada and the last thing a Canadian/NHL trained ref wants is to have the game compromised.

I'm sorry..but this is just your opinion. These officials chosen for this final have never been involved in scandals or associated with any games were 'bias' was involved or their ethics questioned. So why are we questioning them now? Your own countrymen like Karlson and Kronwall don't have a problem, yet people like you do.

Its simple, only people who are likely to act in a biased manner themselves think that others would do the same thing. Sorry buddy, believe it or not, there are ethical people out there.

Finally a very sensible Canadian poster! Why not have American NHL refs in this game?

I think many Canadian posters really need to wake up and get a clue of what's happening outside the very small world of Canadian- and NHL hockey. Don’t you watch any other international sports?

In ANY other professional sport you DON'T have referees from the parties competing against each other. This is to avoid any kind of suspicion of not having an unbiased judgement. It's the basic principle of refereeing in all international sports! IF there would ever be any questionable calls, there won’t be any suspicion of partial judgement based on your nationality if you follow this principle.
It’s the same basic and very logical principle as for courts in all civilized countries, where a judge can’t have ANY ties what so ever to any of the two parts, just to avoid ANY suspicions of being biased.

You think what edler did was the same as what Getzlaf did? Sure maybe when you don't consider the circumstances of the hit.

Similar thing to what Big Phil said above, if these Russian refs were tenured and well-respected NHL officials then I would be fine with it. Or maybe replace Russia with any other country though because a Russian referree would face an enormous amount of scrutiny by the Russian media with the games being in Sochi.

I can see why Swedish fans would be wary of the situation because they probably don't have the same level of comfort with NHL officials as North Americans. But remember that almost every player on the Swedish team has these officials on a regular basis in the NHL and probably wouldn't have any trust issues.

Are you trolling with me? I really hop you know when they suspended Edler from IIHF it was a former Canadian NHL ref that was in charge right?

And Getzlaf was assessed a 5 minute major and a game misconduct, leading to the Slovakian goal that won the game:

Quote:
In Helsinki, Michal Handzus' power-play goal with 2:28 left in regulation sparked Slovakia to a 4-3 upset of Canada in the quarterfinals at the IIHF World Championship on Thursday.


The goal came four seconds after Canada captain Ryan Getzlaf was assessed a five-minute major and a game-misconduct for kneeing Slovakia forward Juraj Mikus.

Who's to say an American ref wouldn't have bias though?

I totally get the ultimate point here I think it's kind of silly to have Canadians refereeing a Canadian game but when you scratch the surface and do some research on who these refs are and the clean history of corruption in hockey it's not as big of a deal. These are NHL professional refs. They have jobs to go back to after the Olympics.

One thing that would avoid so many problems is developing a standard of what is actually a penalty and when it should be called.

Since Euro and Canadian hockey unfortunately developed differently it makes sense that we run into these problems. The NA attitude certainly allows for more than the Euro sensibilities do especially where a potential call does not actually effect the outcome of the game. We can all agree that NA hockey is a much more physical game less like soccer on ice.

I can understand the concern of having referees from participating countries involved but isn't the alternative worse. Besides other sports at the Olympic games are regularly judged that way. And don't bring up figure skating because we all know about that.

I'm more concerned about these guys calling more penalties on Canada just to prove a point. Actually our power play is pretty rusty at the moment after having so few opportunities at these games.

As for Mr. Forsberg junior and senior maybe it's just karma.
