Nope...its just happening to the Wings. Payback for all those years Stevie Y was untouchable and sticking it to the Hawks!! Just kidding. Agree with what your saying and seeing!!
...yet "know" is somewhat beyond your abilities. Check your own comment before you lash out at someone for a typo. I can understand booting Bertuzzi for the game just because he happened to catch his head (looked like his bicep and not his shoulder, but whatever), but Johnson totally squatted into that as he knew he was about to get hit (he said it himself). If Bertuzzi wanted to hit him in the head with the elbow, then he certainly could/would have, and Johnson would have been in rougher shape and I would support a lengthy suspension. It was an accident, and the first thing Bert did when he left the ice was go to the Chicago dressing room to apologize. That's a little more than you might expect from a Matt Cooke, so please don't lump him in with that goon. Also agreed that the officiating was terrible - the Zetterberg hook was questionable at best (though he says it was legit), particularly when you consider the non-call on the trip to Thomas Holmstrom and the blatant interference to Zetterberg that was also a non-call. I'm not the kind of guy who whines whenever the calls don't go his team's way, all I'm looking for is consistency. Is that too much to ask?
LOL - good call out TC!! All in good fun!! I do agree with you 100% about the consistency - or lack of. Seems like some nights the boys are allowed to play a bit and other nights you end up in the box for breathing on the guy.
I would even settle for inconsistency from game to game - what gets me is the lack of consistency from moment to moment during a single game. How are the players supposed to know what's fair and what's not? Obviously with human refs making calls on the spot you're going to miss the odd call or at other times blow the whistle a bit too easily, but lately it seems like there's no rhyme or reason whatsoever. I'm sure that can't be relegated to just the Wings games I watch. You probably see the same thing with the Hawks.
Hey all you Blackhawk dumbfucks cry me a river no Bert suspention. I hope you get the same officiating crew tonight youll need it. Hawks 1 Boston 4
Jeff, iwasn't quite sure, are you of the opinion Bertuzzi is scum? This is the hit that needs to be taken out of the game. If scumbag doesn't get suspended they may as well let Cooke play. i know this is sacreligious, but sorry Tazer, if there's a smarter player in the league, i've yet to see him. I actually have grown to like kopecks but had to laugh at that stat - i think it's probably true
