It is a sad day in the hockey world when a stupid call by an official (referee) has a major impact in determining the outcome of a crutial playoff game or any game for that matter. I agree it was a questionable call but the King's player turned back into the player making the check who did not have time to change his position or momentum for the hit. It was at best a 2 minute boarding penalty. This blatent miscall / wrong call cost New Jersey the opportunity to force a game 7 which was in their favor until this disgraceful ameture mistake. Why did they not call the hit from behing on the King's player just moments before. The game was 1 to 1 after that and would have been or at least had the makings of one of the greatest games in hockey history. The NHL should put someone in place to judge the officials and then some of them like Watson, Walkom, Rooney and a couple of others, who by the way were desperate when we saw them call games when the Leafs were here, will be fired for non performance of officiating expected by the professional athelets they judge. We should be watching game 7 on Wednesday to see both teams trying to make hockey history except for some dumbo who wanted to get his name in the books one way or the other. It is simply not right and must be addressed before next season.

THIS is news. THis is what we should be talking about, not some stupid mill in some virtually forgotten community where there are jobs that we as Canadians are now too good for. We should be talking about hockey or soccer, not the demise of dirty fishery jobs that we send our children to school to avoid.

The sports page is an excellant way to get boys/girls to read regularly and become interested in other subjects like statistics. It also provides bonding through communications with parents and other relatives in the family on favoriate players and teams. Young people who are focused on anything community oriented are less likely to be desruptive and show anti social traits.

Yeah, because who the hell picks up a local paper to read local news? Personally, I want to hear more about the election in Greece. Dunce.
