    Even up Andy was a thing. And its pretty common. Doesnt make it okay but how many times a year have you seen any team get a BS powerplay and then say "Refs are going to look to even this up so dont do anything remotely stupid" in your head ?

    Yeah, I think it's gonna get real stupid in response. For the next few weeks, I think we're either gonna see refs call absolutely nothing, like it's a playoff game, or call every single infraction under the sun and we'll wind up with 8 penalties per team. And they'll be like, "Is this what you wanted?!"

    I mean... then they can just be fired and easily replaced. This isn't the time for friggin' referees to take a stand. Nobody cares about them.

    And they'd be correct.


    I know some actual NHL players who believe, %100, that the playoffs are "managed" to maximize revenue. As in, the refs are instructed to manage the playoff series as best they can, without being overt, to maximize games.

    You know multiple NHL players personally? And they all believe in the same conspiracy? Hmm.

If one team is being more disciplined than the other, then so be it. Don't screw with the games to try and even things out.
    And any game with an big imbalance in PPs gets the "Refs cheated us" treatment. lol
    People will never accept that their team might have played dirtier than the other.

    Nhl fans... “wow this is bs. They got 6 pp and we got 1. Refs cheated us!”


    Same nhl fans.... “holy shit the integrity of the game is at stake here. These referees are looking to even up calls. I always knew it!”

    Perhaps the culture of "even 'em up" is inevitable, but if this guy has to get sacrificed in order to at least reduce it, I'm for it.

    I wonder if we see more or less of the dumb hooking call when the stick in on the waist, but not really hooking

    So what's your stick doing on the guy's waist if you are not hooking? Are you massaging him? If you aren't impeding him, why put your stick there? Just keep you stick down and use it to play the puck.

    The call I don't like, and Lindgren got one tonight, is holding the stick, where the guy has his stick in your chest and under your arm. What's the stick doing there? Those should at least be penalties on both players.
