What goes around comes around Teems.

he didn't dive, sweetie. He put that kid on D in a situation where he had to allow selanne to blow by him or take a penalty. He chose the latter.

yea i agree there needs to be a beter way to call things. a delay of game call is not subjective in anyway(if it was because of dzone clear).

That was a glorious sight to see. LOL @ the Holy Finnish Diver.

Yea, it was a blown call. Get over it, Tayloo. May be you should have tried scoring in the first 56 minutes.

Is it just me, but on Versus they showed 1 quick replay, and it looked like the puck went over the player's bench. A puck going over the player's bench isn't a penalty.

If it did cross over the boards before that, then yeah, it should have been called, but like I said, they only showed 1 quick replay.

It was awesome when Selanne kept whining during the faceoff and the ref just dropped the puck.

Never thought I'd see the Ducks in a free fall.

Yes he is a baby. When he was playing for Colorado he was whining all the time. He complained about his knee, teammates, coach and his ice-time (which he didn't deserve, because he sucked).

Anyway.. I'm happy he's gone. Sure we could have used him after his knee-surgery, but he was just horrible in Colorado and all he did was he whined. Colorado-fans propably know him as cry-baby, because he was that there..

he should of shut his trap after his team got a bench minor. There is no C or A on his jersey, Selanne should have know better.

Bad call by the refs. However it was something that is not easy to call. There was no ref in position to actually see if there was a deflection off a Duck stick.

Having a 5-on-3 with several minutes left and only down by 2 goals? Still definitely within the realm of possibility.

I can see Avs fans whining but SJ and Kings fans? He struggled a bit in SJ but was the best producer in there anyways. And he certainly deserves *****ing from Kings fans because he plays for the Ducks?

Colorado fans are just angry because the St. Louis Blues are only 5 points behind them in the standings

All I remember from Selanne is last year during their series with Calgary when he kept whining after games about how the Flames continuously hooked and held him but wouldn't get called. Ugh.

Besides that, hurry up faceoffs are STILL a part of the NHL. If the guy taking the faceoff doesn't get his stick down in time, it's his own fault for being distracted with whatever else he's doing. This ain't golf.

I always thought 'classy" vets like Selanne did'nt do this stuff. I was told here only Crosby yaps at the refs.

That's what i was told anyway.

Frustration leads to doing stupid things. As for whining, a huge amount of players do it, and some refs allow it more, some just throw a penalty at you right away..

And all teams have difficult times during the season, I still think the Ducks are contenders for the cup. They are just going to through a difficult phase right now..

Selanne definitely deserved the penalty, he was yakking for a full 90 seconds. That team has got to be really frustrated, beside a 7-goal explosion against the Sharks they've scored 2 goals in February.

Yeah? Point? He played fantastic during that series, that's no secret. But he whined continuously, also, and this topic is about that.

Nice attempt at trying to sound like a jackass, though.

Really? I thought this was the thread where all the bitter Avs, Sharks, and Flames fans were bashing Selanne? My bad.

I saw the Versus feed too and there was just one quick replay. It was hard to tell from the replay, but I thought it may have gone over the bench. Regardless my feelings on the situation are as such

1) The refs/linesmen should have easily made the call. Nobody tipped the puck as far as I can see (unless it grazed the forecheckers shoulder, not likely). I don't know which was the right call though because I saw only one replay and it could have gone over the players bench.

2) Selanne should have stopped arguing about it before the faceoff. The refs are not going to reverse a call, so why complain so much. Suck it up and keep playing. Some calls go your way, some don't. I don't blame the ref for dropping the puck like he did, it was his way of saying shut your trap and play.

3) As for getting a 10 minute misconduct, I'm fine with that, but the refs have to be consistent with that (and all their other calls), some let players go more than others, when there is no consistency then the players have to judge how far they can go by knowing a refs tendancies. The refs need to get on the same page with their infractions, one ref lets more go than other and it drive me crazy.
