  1. Of all the things that players say to each other both on the bench and on the ice and a referee gives Propal a 10 minute misconduct for pointing out the score to Abdelkader just shows how strange this years officiating has become.
    With all the F-you’s and Mother F’ers to go along with numerous threats of physical violence that almost every player gets as well as gives other players during the course of a game this misconduct seems a little weak, but then again the weak type is the kind of officiating we are seeing this year.
    Did anyone see the two penalties that Pittsburgh got away with late in last night’s game?
    Did anyone see the referee during play, pick up Crosby’s helmet and take it to him on the bench last night so that he could get back on the ice last night?
    I am not a Leaf fan and still believe they got jobbed.
    I freakin’ rest my case.
