Default When did the NHL start hiring NBA refs?

Seriously, seeing the trend of serious penalties being ignored, then the other team being punished for the retaliation, and not knowing if there is going to be an honest punishment from the home office, I am reminded of why I stopped watching basketball years ago.

What is going on with the referees and in Toronto?

I love fighting (with a purpose) and I love the physical part of the game, but this has gotten out of hand. It is about to become a huge black eye for the NHL if it isn't fixed ASAP. It is the worst officiating I have ever seen in hockey.

I have no problem with letting them play as I think officials shouldn't be a factor in deciding games like they are at times during the regular season BUT I don't understand how things like the Neal hit on Couts or the Torres hit last night go seemingly unseen by all four guys in stripes ???? Especially the hit last night on Hossa as the puck wasn't even gone that long so WTH are they doing, all four guys watching the puck ???? That should never be the case.

Since they can't stop the game to review everything, maybe it's time to have the off ice official do more than just let the guys know what they're missing in between periods ?
