Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
One thing this shortened NHL season has given us in abundance is the fine art of the whine.
Nary a night passes that we don't hear rumblings and grumblings from a coach, general manager, player or the media covering a game about one or more (perceived) odious calls from the on-ice officials.
Wednesday night it was Detroit carping about non-calls in Los Angeles after a 2-1 loss to the Kings, while there were complaints in Toronto about a major checking from behind call assessed to Leafs forward Mike Brown.
Indeed, it's a rare night we don't hear some boo-hooing from some corner of the NHL world about calls made or not made.
Truly, is there anything more tiresome than someone complaining about the work done on the ice, especially given that invariably that complaint emanates from a team that ended up losing a game or a point in the standings?
