NHL refereeing makes WWE look good

I've been a huge fan of hockey since I was in my early teens in the mid ‘80s. I've seen a lot of changes in the NHL and a lot of it has not been good.

Hockey seemed to be at its peak in the mid ‘90s and then clutch and grab mania took over. Gone were the 6-5 games as 2-1 games took over. Fans went elsewhere.

Now, the fast pace games are back and hockey appears to be on the upswing. Fans from all over the world were watching the Flyers-Caps series with hopes of a Pens-Caps series in Round Two.

Well, it isn't happening. I'm not sure what would have happened if the officiating was consistent and I'm not saying the Caps would have won. What I am saying is the officiating was horrible and it's been an ongoing problem.

The NHL should come clean and have Mean Gene Okerlund do color commentary while Vince McMahon provides the referees. The NHL would get better officiating if it went that way.

Fans in Russia and Sweden saw what occurred and it's in their papers.

NHL officiating makes pro wrestling refs look legit. Shame on you for missing the boat again, NHL.
