They got to the WCF because Landeskog was millimeters offsides getting on the bench on the other side of the play in that game 7, but THAT isn't reviewable?

Something doesn't add up.

NHL really wants Thornton to hoist a cup before he retires I guess.

Oh hey there, Ray Borque.

Blues ABSOLUTELY got hosed here.

 

The refs were standing right there and you can't tell me that neither of them saw the hand-pass.    

 

I think this is less to do about Favoritism toward the Sharks and more to do about MAXIMIZE TV REVENUE as they want the Blues to come back and tie the series and have another Game 7.

 

It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$

Except unlike Bourque, Joe is at least CONTRIBUTING to his team instead of just riding its coattails like Bourqe did with the Avs.

They also could have not given up a goal with like a minute to go. 

Even so, that’s as bad as it gets as far as missed calls go.

I'm definitely not arguing that, I just think it's funny cause it didn't happen to us lol

Hand passes and majors will be reviewable after this year lol

And the refs could literally do the thing they’re paid to do and watch the play.

Yes, the Blues should have gotten a 5th but for the Sharks to just happen to be blessed with another miracle is absolutely pathetic at this point

This league is a fvcking JOKE. 

 

sh!t like this is exactly why the NFL can be a laughing stock and still do millions better. The MLB is a joke of a league but they still have hundreds of thousands of viewers. The NHL will NEVER be a true "big 4" league because of this bullsh!t.

I think he (Meier) was "batting" the puck down. He's not going to bat it towards the boards, right? How was #65 standing there totally unmarked? Blues made their own bed, now lie in it. I also thought the Landeskog call was sh!t because it wasn't the spirit of the rule. But IT was reviewable. This play is not.

The league just can't get out of its own way.

That's an embarrassing way to essentially end the Blues' season. fvck what the book says, fvck what the ref did or didn't see - if it's clearly available in a replay.. make the right call.

San Jose getting a LOT of help this post season. Almost..  almost makes you want to grab your tinfoil hat and start talking conspiracy theories.

The league really, really wants to push the Thornton narrative.

I was at the bar last night watching the game so I didn't have the luxury of hearing the sound to know what was going on - from the looks of it I thought it was pretty clearly a hand pass.  Glad to see that I was right, what a terrible missed call.

I'm not naïve enough to think that collusion doesn't happen - it's all around us in business, politics, and even sports, but with that said, I really don't think the 4 refs on the ice were told to stick it to the Blues and, when the opportunity arose, somehow screw them out of a win.  Even if the league tried to pay them more to somehow skew calls in the Sharks' favor.  The fact of the matter is that hockey is a very fast game, and although it would seem that the call was pretty easy to spot, for whatever reason they all seemed to miss it.  I have a very hard time believing that the refs had it in the back of their minds, all 4 of them, to essentially wait for a moment or play when they could decide to keep their whistles in their pockets so that the Sharks win the game.  It just didn't go down that way, I promise you.  When Meier batted the puck with his hand, there's zero chance in the brains of all 4 of those refs that they each went "Yup, that's the one, right there in this split second, we're all going to pretend like that didn't happen, and the Sharks are going to win this game."  They missed it.  It's a horrible miss, but they did.  And hand passes, right wrong or indifferent, aren't reviewable under the current set of rules, so technically the goal had to stand. It sucks, and I hate it, but it is what it is. No conspiracy here.

I've never had anything against San Jose but at this point, I hope they don't win the cup.  Between the Vegas 5 minute major after the fact and last nights hand pass, they've benefited wayyyyy too much from unforgivable officiating blunders in these playoffs.

I'd argue the NFL one was way worse. At least this wasn't a knockout game. St Louis isn't out yet and if this doesn't fire them up to come out and kill the sharks next game then nothing will.
