Hockey is a pretty tough sport to officiate. We see shit from up above and have cameras at all angles. Refs are at ice level.

The game is so fast with so many things happening at once.

All that shit doesn't matter when it's your job to ensure that everything is called fairly. How many times have we seen refs give penalties just to 'even things up' or to make up for a 'bad call' earlier in the game?

There's way too much inconsistency at the NHL level that it's proving to be a fucking joke.

Imagine the reaction of the Hawks fans if Torres scored the overtime winner.

How dirty was the hit anyway? It wasn't late, it wasn't a head shot.. He left his feet a bit, but only on the impact itself which is allowed iirc. Hossa just got caught looking the other way, and hit his head on the ice, at least from what I can tell from my phone

Bob Mackenzie tweeted it was .83 seconds late, in comparison, Rome's hit last year was .87 seconds late and they gave him 5 games. It was a bit of a charge, he did leave his feet. Will probably get a couple games. He's a repeat offender as well.

The hit being late or not is debatable but him leaving his feet was very obvious. It should definitely have been a charging call.

I'd be surprised if Torres got less than 5 for that.

NHL head office up to their antics again.

It's hard, and I understand that refs miss calls. I just wish they would review plays and hand out penalties, the same way they would review a goal. That said, it would probably slow the game right down, but it would also stop a lot of players from diving.

Holy f*** at the refs. They blew a high sticking call later in the game too. Guy was bleeding pretty bad.

I agree, the NHL is the only major sport league here where the officiating can be so fucking biased, where they can call a penalty for the smallest thing or turn their heads away and not call a blatant penalty all depending on the point in the game. I never see such an inconsistency in anything else
