    Harry Neale used to say "It's always been amazing to me that they only see and penalize the retaliation"

    I hear what your saying bro, but the philosophy is flawed, everyone knows the law of coulda shoulda woulda, in that you can never change the past.

    That would be fine if it was consistent.

    The issue is that they may let Chara get away with interference but then you do the same thing and don't get away with it. The other team can clutch and grab your speed players but if you do it the other way around (i.e. to Pastrnak, Bergeron, or Marchand) it gets called. Happened in both of our series against the Bruins.

    Maybe don't reward the inferior team that should lose because they can't keep up? Why should the Leafs have to resort to a lower standard of play because the other team refused to keep up with the times? If they want to play slow, then the fast teams can skate circles around them or they can take a ton of penalties and hope they can kill them off.

    In their eyes, theyre trying to make the most entertaining product. They want to keep games close the best that they can. If its 6-1 in the 3rd with 10 mins left, people might tune out because the game is out of reach. But what if the refs give the team losing some opportunities to pull the game in reach? If that happens, then the game "overall" becomes more exciting, which causes people to stay tuned in.

    At least thats what I think.

    So true.

    We all know cross checks to the head are bad and should be punished, but when Kadri did it you would think he went Negan on DeScrub's head.

    Let's see how many of these cross checks to the head got a suspension

    Its crazy that if I'm watching a game, and a team is up 4-2 mid way through the third, I know the only PP the leading team will get will be blatant penalties that you cant ignore (puck over the glass, high stick even though that shit can go uncalled at times).

    Really takes the joy out of the game for me.

    Yes - the league wants parity - almost every league has it. To think they are trying to achieve that by "game fixing" with officials employing game management through calls (mandated by the league even?) is borderline conspiracy theory territory. How do they get their parity - salary cap/floor/expansion draft

    It's good to have teams that dominate, it makes other teams to have to compete at a higher level. I don't; think Uncle Gary would have a problem with Arizona, LA, NYR or Boston being a dynasty but he would have a massive problem with Edmonton or Winnipeg becoming a dynasty.

    It's not a theory, there is documented proof that teams that take more penalties also get more calls their way AKA game management. The Leafs take less penalties and are therefore given one of the lowest amount of powerplay opportunities in the league vs Lightning who are at the top of league in powerplays for AND against.

    Such as Dean Warren.

    Like I said he actually hurt his case bringing that to the public eye.

    I couldn't hate Kadri for these suspensions.
    To me it was just more game management.

    Make no mistake a lot LeaFlanders, especially the "no fighting, fighting is bad and yucky and Don Cherry stinks" crowd were very loud about the team needing to remove Kadri and his element from the team because "we don't like what he did" and "it hurt the team which he keeps on doing" and "what he did no longer belongs in the game" and basically drank their own little cup of sanctimonious cancellation whine and with the utmost of pretention continuously shared it with the rest of use whether we wanted it or not!

    Simmonds shafted by a ignored call after a cheap one called on Rielly. Six men on for ottawa for a shift ha. Gross reffing

    How can four officials (and the LEAFS for that matter) not see 7 red jerseys on the ice for that long? Boggles the mind. And you’re surprised the ref didn’t see the trip? And, don’t forget the Mikey goal that was originally called off. This is not just incompetence, it’s a blatant attempt to screw the Leafs over. And then the losers cover their microphones when talking to Simmonds. Pathetic.

    Kadri was moved for reasons that are more than just his carelessness with his stick cost our team. If you look at what he did as a measure of sticking up for himself and the team, and not crossing the line (which cross checking a guy in the head is) then debrusk is also innocent. you learn from a very young age in hockey that the refs do only see the retaliation. It’s also easy to ignore getting run all over the ice if you focus on putting the puck in the net.

    I find it more interesting that one ref and lineman each come from Trois-Rivieres, QC and Dayton, Ohio. Both have populations of 140,000 and you get a ref and lineman from both in the same game.

    one supposes one would have had to play the game in order to become a repository of such intimate and vital knowledge

    but I do digress, as earlier in the thread I wrote;

    Nothing much to talk about that game except Simmonds losing it on them. It took a scoring opportunity away because it was looking like a covid party with nobody over that side if Simmer could have got around without that trip. Thats a easy call to see and he seen it. He did definitely ignore it
    Who’s responsible for checking how many men are on the ice there linesmen... that was incompetence.
