I haven't posted much in the last few days and it's not because of the Lightning being slowed if not stopped by the opposition, but just because of personal reasons.
At any rate, the Lightning have lost the last 3 of 4 and plenty of worry warts are saying the end is near.... In the past few games the Bolts have seen several no-calls on penalties committed against Martin St. Louis and other members of the Lightning. This team has played a load of games in a very short span of time and are showing the affects of it right now. Not just being tired but being bruised and battered and getting nothing much more than a sympathetic "Sucks to be you" from the refs when a penalty isn't called.
Maybe this is just sour grapes for the Lightning losing? Then again, I thought refs were supposed to call games evenly all season long? I also thought intentional acts to injure were supposed to warrant league retaliation against said player (go back to the Craig Adams incident in Carolina)?
I'm starting to feel like it will be a good thing if the league shuts down - someone needs to get there head out of there ass and restructure the sport from the ref level right up tot he Commissioners office.... Bettman and Colin Campbell aren't getting it done.
