Complaining about non-calls

 

I am tired of hearing fans of any NHL team complain about officiating during an individual game or series.  Face it, as fans of the NHL it is one of those things that you will just have to accept.  There are rules on the books and although there really is no room for interpretation, each official looks at the rules a bit different.  They look at the situation in the game, which team has had the last penalty called on them, and the consequence of the players infraction before determining if they should raise their arm.

 

Hooking should be the same in the first period when the score is 5 – 0 as in the third period when the score 0 – 0.  Boarding should be the same regardless of the extent of the injury / non – injury it causes. 

 

I have been watching the NHL for the better part of 30 years and in that time I have seen it time and time again that the calls that are made in the regular season have changed come playoff time.  Please complain about the officiating in the NHL, I will gladly join you, but complain about the officiating as a whole otherwise you are wasting your time.  I take that back you are probably wasting your time anyway as Gary Bettman could care less what the fans think.
