[QUOTE]Hey bobbygoat, before you label the refs as zebras, why don't you step on the ice and try to call a game. Also for Perrysound, I read all your comments and find much to do about nothing in there. Hunwick's hit was a legal shoulder bump, no elbow, Savard, unfortunately, hit the glass [ immoveable] pretty hard and is emotionally concerned until he gets the Doc's review. Head hunting is not rampant, and to setle something with a staged goon fight is stupid. Whoever believes that the Bruins are not sticking up for each other is watching something I have yet to see. Refs may miss the first blow, but they always see the responsive wack or punch. Julien may tell Lucic and Chara to avoid unnecessary reactions, but he seems to support reponses like Campbell's, McQuaid's and Horton's. Most of these Bruins can stick up for themselves, but in instances where the opponent pulls a sneaky slash, trip or whatever, you will see Ference, McQuaid and others jumping in, but, I may be watching games differently, or with a wee bit more experience.

Bonehead, as for the Zebra comment< I put in some time at this, then realized I'd sooner play, left the reffing to those that can't play. Now they doubled the Refs and more is missed with 4 blind mice instead of 3.
Hate the adage, let them play, yes let them play, but when they let them play, teams that are not as good become upsets in the playoffs. Call the game from start of season to end of playoffs the same and all will be on the same page, and earned their points the same way.
Old roommate and buddy, used to run the Refs for Ottawa region, complete minor system right to the 67's. Hated to watch a game with him, prob the same as you, his favourite thing to say would be, it obviously was not a penalty, the ref did not call it. You keep your blinders on, he had his.
Nothing is legal when it is a hit to the head.
Responsive wack or punch, word is retaliation.
Other than McQ coming to Stu's aid(who is 1 player that does not need it), I haven't seen enough of our players dishing it out.
Experience watching a game, I'll raise you experience, wisdom and knowledge.
