    Re: O Hallorans name should be engraved on the 2011 Cup

    The report, compiled by Vancouver researcher Will Lockwood of the Edmonton Journal, features some team-by-team numbers; for example, last year the Vancouver Canucks had the biggest home/away power-play advantage (5.17 at home vs. 3.83 on the road). In the last decade, the Canucks are second overall in home power plays received, ranking behind only the Phoenix Coyotes, whom the report found averaged 1.22 more power plays at home than their visiting opponents did.

    So if that's the name of the game,

    why aren't owners of the other franchises complaining?

     

    And if that's what the game is right now.

    why isn't every team snuggling up to the NHLOA?  or bidding on Campbell once he became a free agent?

     

    And if it's all about NBC & the media, why wouldn't they right it so their biggest markets would win - all the time?  Boston isn't that big a media market.

     

    There are a lot of people with a lot more skin in the game than you, why aren't they complaining?

    I will take Potpouri for $800.

    And now he's trying to show how the NHLOA caused his nucks to get swept this year.

    The officiating crew for tonight’s Bruins/ Leaf game is in, and it’s an eyebrow raiser.

     

     

    O’Halloran — No. 13 in your lucky number programs — is a pretty curious assignment, given his lengthy history with diddling the Canucks.

     O’Halloran was one of the two officials working the time Vancouver and Chicago met, when Duncan Keith was whistled for a two-minute elbowing minor on Daniel Sedin:

    That incident set off a hailstorm of controversy.

    Sedin missed the remaining nine games of the regular season and first three games of the playoffs with a concussion, while Keith was tagged with a five-game suspension from NHL discipline puppet Brendan Shanahan.

    Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault was incensed the call on the ice didn’t reflect the severity of the hit or subsequent punishment from the league.

    “We got a big two-minute power play off that hit from the same referee — remember last year when Daniel got punched six times in the face in the Boston series?” Vigneault said. “I seem to remember it was the same guy.”

    That guy was none other than O’Halloran, one of two referees working Game 6 of the 2011 Stanley Cup final, during which Boston’s Brad Marchand repeatedly punched Sedin in the face.

    Sedin received a 10-minute misconduct, as did Marchand — though Marchand got an extra two for roughing.

    Earlier in that same postseason, O’Halloran was working Game 2 of the Western Conference final between Vancouver and San Jose, in which Ben Eager hammered Sedin with this hit:

    Eager was given a two-minute boarding minor on the play, a decision the Canucks were displeased with.

    The two-minute penalty also came under scrutiny when, shortly after the playoffs ended, the NHL sent out a player safety video (FF to 8:01) in which the Eager-Sedin hit was used to illustrate illegal action under the new boarding rules.

     

    Looks like O’Halloran plays favorites




    Who are you now?

    If that's the name of the game, then the Canucks should learn how to play that game better.

    And how is it that the Canucks have the biggest power play advantage and the refs are biased against them?  How does that go again?
