The atrocious officiating has also made this a terribly disappointing season. If I see Francois St. Laurent call one of our games again I'll just not watch. He's the worst ref in the league. No fun watching games where the calls are random. And seeing our lifeless coach never give refs any heat pisses me off.

bad calls usually even out over the season. For every missed trip on zajac we got the benefit of a five minute major against the wild, so I have a hard time blaming officiating. In the moment yeah it's frustrating when you don't get a call or when your called for a bogus penalty but we don't complain when those calls go to our benefit.

Also I think deboer picks his fights, I've seen him very animated at refs before (I believe he's received at least 2 bench minors since being here). But yeah he should have given hell to the ref for the no call on zajac.

And on st Laurent being the worst- Chris lee says hello.

I'm not saying the refs are bad because they miss calls against us. I'm also saying they're bad because they miss calls all over the place, for both sides. The calls they do make seem completely random. Interference on dump ins rarely gets called anymore, too.

Chris Lee is up there, for sure.

I accepted this season's demise after the last Florida trip.   Once it;s official we should call up Matteau, Bouchard and all the kids and just let them play.   Love watching the young Islanders play these days

I was wrong to ever doubt the powers of Lou Lamoriello.
