    I was so upset Saturday night when we played the Devils that Auger was one of the referees, the HE COMPLETELY BLEW THE CALL ON OUR FIRST GOAL! Called a bad penalty on Alberts for a great hit and one more BS call. I am not sure why he was there but he was not listed on the video board, listed instead was Mike Lego. I wonder if that was on purpose or if Canes personnel that run the board had it wrong. Regardless I have no respect for that man and even less now, if that is possible when you have none already. I think I will start a Facebook Fan Page called NHL fans for the OUSTING OF AUGER!

    This situation with Alex Burrows and referee Staphane Auger was uncalled for. All hockey followers know that during a game the ref.s might make some bad calls. Usually there will be a make-up call later if he feels he screwed up a call. In my opinion, referees shouldn't be discussing previous calls with players before or after the games, especially in the manner Staphane Auger did with Alex Burrows. You don't threaten a player with a penalty call because you thought he got over on you in a previous game. Referees mingling with players to discuss previous calls should be strickley prohibited.

    ^I see! It's not easy being an official. I was a baseball umpire for a few years, man that can be tough. Best I can tell, 50% will tolerate ya, the other 50% would like to kick your A--.

    ^Curious, where did you get that number (95%)? That's impressive if accurate!

    I just figure that out of 100 or so decisions they might make 95 or more of the calls are correct, or at least you could understand why they call it like they do.

    The refs in the NHL are more than qualified and are (95+%) correct.

    edits,

    Can't honestly say I'm a "big" hockey fan, grew up in NC playing baseball, football, some b-ball. Never thought NC would have a hockey team but I'm glad we do. Most of my teammates (baseball) in college were from the northeast (the Italians were my favorites), I grew to like hockey from being around them. As for the officiating, not sure throughout the NHL but I've seen to many bad calls in other sports...to many bad calls that refs/umpires should be held accountable. Hockey is no different & it appears the officiating is just as bad. Anyway, I don't follow the NBA, follow Major League Baseball sporadically since their 90s issues, will say to h3ll with the NFL if they go on strike in 2011. If the NFL goes on strike, I'm just about ready to say the h3ll with traditional Pro Sports in this area (baseball, football, basketball) and may become a hockey fan, along with golf, nascar, tennis. I've had it with the greed, the attitudes, bad officials with agendas, etc. Good luck on your paper.

    Just an fyi, I've been to see the Canes & TV does not do that sport justice. Much faster live & I enjoyed every minute of it. Little late on the response!

    Some of the teams (the Rangers, for example) get away with way too much stuff - hitting after the whistle, always taking swipes at players on the other teams and trying to get retaliation penalties. When the officials let it go, the game degenerates into thuggishness.

    Some of the officials whistle down every little thing in the first and second periods, then swallow their whistle in the third period. Such deliberate inconsistency is very frustrating for the players and fans.

    This year, the linesmen seem to be missing more offside calls on the blue lines, to the extent that I wonder if they haven't been told "if it is real close let it go".

    In general, if your team is mired at the bottom of the standings the quality of officiating is less important than if you are fighting for a playoff spot.
