OK, this is the first time in a long time that I have actually heard one of the analysts, announcers, etc. criticize the NHL officiating. I am surprised, because I thought there was a memo from the NHL that players, reporters, announcers, etc. were not allowed to publicly say anything bad about the officials or they would be fined or not allowed to report, etc.?

His criticism was over three plays: play one was the Jagr hook on Malkin to get the puck for the game winning goal in the double overtime of game 3 of the Bruins / Pens series, play two was the horrible call in the Wings / Hawks game which disallowed a goal when Saad was being dumped into the Wings bench by a Wings player, and the third was the hit Sid took in the Bruins zone on the powerplay, in Game 4 when he never even touched the puck.

Let me first say that as a Pens fan, the lack of calls was not why they lost, so if they would have gotten a call, who knows if it would have had an impact and that is not why I am talking about this. That being said as a fan, I am just tired of the lack of consistency from official to official and from regular season to the playoffs. I understand those guys have a tough job watching the entire ice and seeing all that goes on. In addition, what looks like a penalty from halfway up the ice, sometimes doesn't look that obvious at a different angle. My issues is that if you aren't going to call it 100% of the time in the playoffs, then let the players play that way all year long. Why does the NHL have two different standards of play? It makes no sense to me that you over enforce rules during the regular season and then ignore them in the playoffs where you are determining who is the best team playing within the rules of the game.

So do you think Milbury will get in trouble?

Do you agree or disagree with the way the NHL officiates the regular season vs. playoffs?

I can't stand Milbury on a general basis as an announcer, this was actually one of the few times I liked what I heard, maybe because nobody has ever questioned the "integrity" of the game.
