Fan to NHL – hey ref!

NHL hockey is fast becoming a game of just how badly players can injure an opponent, one reader says.

To the Editor,

The NHL playoff refereeing this year is become the joke of the century.

NHL hockey is fast becoming a game of just how badly players can injure an opponent. Call that sportsmanship?

In the Canucks and Kings game last Sunday, the Kings’ captain Brown purposely slugged Henrik Sedin in the jaw aiming to eliminate him from play. The dreamy referees, floating in la-la land all evening, never did give Brown a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Hey, you refs, if you can’t do a better job refereeing a fair game then please stay home. No spectator enjoys watching any player get lambasted and seriously injured just to win the cup.
