That's awesome, it looks like DiPietro is laughing and giddy... saying "Are we really going to have a goalie fight?! This is going to be so coo-OOF"... and he is down for the count. Hilarious expression on his face.
The Sens are going back their glorious early 90s streak.
Kerry Frasier was on that TSN show with Kouleas and Barnaby. He was saying when the ref has the intent to blow the whistle, whether he does it before the puck crosses the line or not is irrelevant. What matters is when, in his mind, the play becomes dead. So, if the Ref is in the motion of bringing the whistle to his lips to blow the play dead, and at the same time the puck goes in, it is a no goal.
That has got to be the most retarded rule. Not surprisingly, Frasier is a full supporter of it.
The Refs are given way too much leverage in this league. It's the main reason why there's so much criticism around officiating.
I have to wonder, what is Bettman doing at the head of the NHL? According to him, there's no need to move any franchise, all is going relatively well, the referees are doing a great job and if you dare criticize them, you will get fined, the head shots do not need much attention, apparently very little concussions come from the hit themselves it's the collateral damage when they fall or wtv..
The guy is doing nothing to fix the problems surrounding the NHL. It's incredibly frustrating.
I've never understood the hate for homer announcers, like who cares. They are catering to a audience in their city, should they cater to the 20 fans from the opposition?
If you have never listened to Edwards than you have no clue what your talking about. Edwards is by far the worst announcer (homer and all), than anything I have ever heard in a hockey game. The guy has no hockey sense, and his little stupid comments are bad. Many of the Boston fans can't stand him.

Then your complaining about uneducated US announcers, which I agree with. However its totally different than homer announcers.
