Maybe we're starting to see the away PK regress to match the home one!

Off the goalies shoulder, off Larsson's face, he goes down in a heap, Pred scores into an open net, ref in the process of blowing the whistle but doesn't waive the goal off.

Your 2018 Oilers everybody.

McDavid literally drags Subban's stick up the ice while he's on a breakaway, no call.

10 seconds later Camilari is in the box.

Somebody from theOilers better get fined for going off of the refs.

These refs have history with the Oilers. No further comments. I don't want to get fined. I will chip in if TMac does...

Lol what in the actual? A blatant hook from behind on a clear cut breakaway and no call. Hilarious.

And then a chincy slashing call on Cammalleri.

Does ANYONE doubt there is an Anti-Edmonton bias with NHL referees after this s**t show?

Freaking McDavid has Subban's stick stuck in his freaking pants on a clear breakaway, NO FREAKING CALL. CLEAR PENALTY SHOT.

Then seconds later a marginal call on Cammalerri. Chiarelli should go ballistic in the media.

That's OK, we'll screw the NHL by winning another draft lottery. F U Bettman.

Maroon takes Hartnells stick right in the berrys while the ref is looking right at it, no penalty there.

on Connor's goal, the defenseman holds him, and then puts his stick right in McD's hands from behind, normally a clear NHL call, no penalty, McD scores despite the infraction.

There was a guy on Lowetide a few weeks ago that actually sat down and did a comparative study, using lots of game video, of the calls and non-calls on Oilers, and their competition, and also included some base samples of games between other teams for a comparison, established a clear statistical bias. I tried to find it on line, couldn't, if anyone can find it please post, could probably use its own thread..

.. another play... McD drives for the net, Eckman puts both hands on his shoulder from behind drags him down, clear plenty on a scoring chance, no call. Someone needs to do a video package and put in on line of all the non-calls, post on YouTube.

There is literally at least one penalty on McDavid EVERY shift, sometimes more. No calls.

Damn, I was sure one of those passes would eventually end up in the net icon_neutral

Lucic didn't even see that pass by Drai for him to tap into the open net.

If McDavid would shoot, if Leon would try, if Lucic had hands and if Klefbom wasn't out there, it would have been a great ending.

The .5% chance of making the playoffs just got lower.

Lucic has zero finish. Klefbom is as agile as a block of cement. LD has no endurance, struggling out there to finish a shift with McD, even Maroon seems to have better lung capacity. oh.. and then we have the ref bias to contend with on top of it all...

IMHO Oilers can compete with anyone 5 on 5. PK killing them, and imbalance in penalty calls.

Since this season is now all about next year, we better start calling the refs out, or this crap will just continue into next season, like it continued from last playoffs. Refs move whatever direction the whining sends them, and when you're the only team not whining, you're gonna get the short end every night.

Exactly. The non-calls on McDavid this year are epidemic. I've never seen a player get hacked so much and no calls made, it defies mere ref incompetence statistically, something stinks, I smell a rat.

After McDavid called out the off-side rule last night in interviews, here is what Colin Campbell said.. looks like calling out the NHL's s**t actually has an effect. While they are at it, they can start with the non-calls on McDavid, and the two rule books that take effect every time the Oilers play. Someone on the Oilers needs to address this, McDavid shouldn't be the one.

Quote:

NHL Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun in The Athletic on Wednesday that he intends to bring up tweaking the offside rule at the next GM meetings in March.

"I think I’ll try to buy the managers over again as a group," he explained. "People might say, 'Who cares about one inch?' A whole city would care in the playoffs about one inch if it was off-side. That’s why we have the off-side coach's challenge.

"But I'll try it again. Because I think it’s an adjustment to this rule that we experienced. This is our third year with it where I think we’ve experienced it enough where you can put some goals back on the board. The basis of it is, the player is still onside because he hasn’t crossed the blue-line. I don’t think you need to be touching the ice."

If McDavid would shoot, if Leon would try, if Lucic had hands and if Klefbom wasn't out there, it would have been a great ending.

The .5% chance of making the playoffs just got lower.


Lucic has zero finish. Klefbom is as agile as a block of cement. LD has no endurance, struggling out there to finish a shift with McD, even Maroon seems to have better lung capacity. oh.. and then we have the ref bias to contend with on top of it all...

IMHO Oilers can compete with anyone 5 on 5. PK killing them, and imbalance in penalty calls.




Since this season is now all about next year, we better start calling the refs out, or this crap will just continue into next season, like it continued from last playoffs. Refs move whatever direction the whining sends them, and when you're the only team not whining, you're gonna get the short end every night.


After McDavid called out the off-side rule last night in interviews, here is what Colin Campbell said.. looks like calling out the NHL's s**t actually has an effect. While they are at it, they can start with the non-calls on McDavid, and the two rule books that take effect every time the Oilers play. Someone on the Oilers needs to address this, McDavid shouldn't be the one.

Quote:

NHL Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun in The Athletic on Wednesday that he intends to bring up tweaking the offside rule at the next GM meetings in March.

"I think I’ll try to buy the managers over again as a group," he explained. "People might say, 'Who cares about one inch?' A whole city would care in the playoffs about one inch if it was off-side. That’s why we have the off-side coach's challenge.

"But I'll try it again. Because I think it’s an adjustment to this rule that we experienced. This is our third year with it where I think we’ve experienced it enough where you can put some goals back on the board. The basis of it is, the player is still onside because he hasn’t crossed the blue-line. I don’t think you need to be touching the ice."



It's stupid to contemplate changing the rule to say you don't need your foot on the ice. Why not just say that's not reviewable? Seriously, have a single camera angle that they can review that's directly above the ice surface. Then if the ridiculous Duchene thing ever happens again, you can call it back, but if it's someone's toe isn't touching the ice, that's considered normal human error and not subject to review. Presto - issue solved.

And it's not like they're getting these all right now. There's a massive shade of grey with regards to is the toe on the ice or not depending on what's available to the cameras. So just limit what you can review for and you're fine.

I don't understand the NHL. They always talk about wanting more offence, and then almost every idiotic rule they put in place takes away goals.

EXACTLY
The offside should just not be review-able. You are right, you can't start having an offside depend on the back foot being "behind the plane of the blue line".. can you imagine the buffoonery that would ensue with the NHL trying to bend their pointy heads around attempting to "review" that scenario?

They can't even get goalie interference right half the time. As we know too well.

Plus, if you don't have to have the back foot on the ice as you cross, you just give the forward another stride before its offside, its like moving the blue line by a meter forward. Just get rid of the review, the times a player actually is offside and the linesman misses it is insignificant compared to the scourge of "off side challenges" taking legit goals away.

Here's the BIG question.

Why is the off side "challenge-able".. when it rarely affects a scoring chance .. or goal.. and yet a non-call on a real infraction..one that negates a scoring chance or causes injury, like a spear to the balls (like Marroon last night), elbow to the head, slew foot, or a hook, or slash on a break away and/or Grade A scoring chance (like McDavid last night .. and pretty much EVERY shift), are NOT deemed "challenge-able".

A missed call on an Offside is usually inconsequential, the others are NOT.

Maybe they should look at if the player who is 'off side' either scores or factors into the goal being scored it is disallowed, if not the goal stands. Often they don't even factor in to the scoring of the goal.

I actually think the offside rule is ok as is. Your skates are on the ice or you're offside. Otherwise it'll be freakin' Ice Capades out there with guys hovering over the blue lines with their skates in the air. Same as when the guys see they're going offside and pick up the back foot because all the weight is on the front- OFFSIDE. The rule has been in effect since Dec. 22, 1929 so everyone has had time to figure it out.

What raises my dander is having the linesmen review the play. It takes forever and the NHL is asking the on ice guys to say: "Ooops, wet the bed on that call." Go to Toronto on every goal, review, call is made from the replay booth and done. That way if certain linesmen are getting overruled regularly you can toss them back to the A and get linesmen who have much better call percentages. Accountability!!! A word not often heard in these parts.

Sucked to see the goal called back but Khaira was offside and if the stripes blows the whistle at the line, this conversation doesn't need to happen. We're just making excuses for blown calls and lousy officiating.

In other news, I heard the Oilers had a mandatory practice session today...at a Palm Springs golf course.
