    Chris Rooney rewarded for missing a puck going off the netting and leading to a goal against the Bruins.

    Well, there hasn't been anyone in particular that has impressed so one is as good (or bad) as the next I guess. It's how games are officiated that is the problem not the refs themselves. Changing refs isn't going to change a thing.

    Oh good. We’re making dedicated threads for referees now.

    I was just thinking that this board needed to put more focus on refs...

    It’s like a goddamn epidemic.

    McCauley is my favorite on this list. Good to see his leg injury is ok- he had to leave game 6 when he fell awkwardly.

    Dwyer's not too bad- I can handle him.

    Is this not a discussion board?

    We talk about refs all the time, good or bad. It's part of the game, believe it or not.

    Lt. Commander Data pre-emotion chip could officiate the game and there would still be posters saying he hates the Bruins

    Bruins were 6-1 or 7-1 with Rooney including playoffs I believe the best record with a ref

    They weren’t good with Dwyer

    McCauley is the best but has a lot of legendary Wally Harris who lets them play

    These are two teams who generally are very disciplined and play clean and fair

    Always like McCauley, glad he wasn't seriously injured when he took himself out of the game a few days ago.

    Blues are hitting in a way to take players out of series.

    Wes McCauley is as good as it gets in the nhl. Glad he’s the guy

    As an aside...

    This is yet another example of just how dumb the NHL is.

    Put aside the fact that Rooney is terrible, the fact that they’d allow a ref born in Boston to referee a SCF that includes the Bruins is asinine.

    I know I’d be ticked off if a St. Louis native was reffing,

    I barely say much negative about the refs- they're human and make mistakes. They are also on the ice where it looks different than from our view on the TV or in the stands. There are about 3 or 4 though, that most times, seem to take pleasure in putting our guys in the box.

    I absolutely hate admitting this, but Rooney's last game was decent- I actually forgot he was one of the refs. Chris Lee is another one who also irks me.

    I don't have anything against Peel and Joannette, but when they ref together, it's hysterical if your team isn't involved, watching one guy make a call from the other end of the ice while the one right in front lets it go- these two are priceless together, and it happens every game I've watched when they ref together. They also tend to call more penalties when they are reffing together- sometimes, some of them are so silly- most refs would let some of those things go, but for some reason, they don't. It really disrupts the flow of the game, in my opinion. I swear, it's like they have a power trip when they ref together. I don't see them doing this with other refs in the league, though I could be wrong. Otherwise, they don't bother me- some folks hate them both, but I think they're ok.

    Reffing is part of the game, good or bad. Some of us just like to discuss the reffing. Not sure why folks gets so hot in the collar about it.

    Every hit they have shown of them is high and slightly late.

    In my opinion Refs and Linesman are being thrown under the bus by the Nhl with coaches challenges and slow motion replays If a team wants to challenge any call they can't watch it in slow motion

    Yep. Their last series was probably their cleanest. Actually they were playing pretty dirty in the regular season as well. They go high a lot and make a ton of marginal hits. I hope the refs keep the Blues' crap under control if they decide to get cheap. I've said it throughout the playoffs, Bs fans are really going to hate the Blues once they start playing them. Blues ***** and moan so much when they get called for about anything, yet try to get away with a lot of stuff. They will gain an advantage in this series if the refs call things very loosely. Not only will they get away with shenanigans in that scenario, but the Bs special teams are simply better than those of the Blues.

    As for the refs, I'm amazed that Rooney made it to the SCF. He was awful in multiple games in the playoffs. He has a great ability to let games get out of control, then tries to bring them under control by making awful calls. Man I cannot stand him. I don't care what the Bruins' record is this year with him doing their games. He's trash most of the time I see him.

    Kozari has been perhaps worse than Rooney this season. He and Sutherland are masters at calling games according to score and situation. Sutherland is generally tolerable, though, and keeps things under control most games.

    Dwyer is hit or miss, but generally calls a fair game. He has improved this season. And of course McCauley is the best of this bunch. There are some legit pretty decent refs in the NHL. Funny how they didn't get chosen for the SCF.

    Agreed - I remember reading somewhere that they typically have four refs for the SCFs, and that the fifth was essentially an "insurance ref" in case McCauley isn't healed up in time to fully participate.

    I do have a bit of sympathy for the refs. The game is fast - we have rewind buttons, slo-mo, multiple camera angles. They don't even have a camera - just wherever they happened to be positioned on the ice. It's the balance between "getting it right" and "getting it done" - if every play were reviewed, games would be 5 hours long.

    I honestly hesitate to believe the refs have any malice towards a team or a particular player - I don't think they're evil, I just think they're bad sometimes. That's why the refs missed the puck in the net - they weren't angling against the Bruins; they just weren't looking. And, yeah, Marchand's always going to get the "extra look", but...in fairness, he has earned his reputation for playing on the edge. He's not as reckless as he was a few years ago, but every year he DOES get in a cheap shot or two.

    The leafs board had an “All Purpose Referee Complaint” thread during the Bs series.

    This isn’t that right now. So hopefully, our fans won’t use this as such once the series is under way.

    Don Koharski could come out of retirement and ref and it wouldn’t matter.

    B’s are winning this.
