The Walkom

Strange, strange call by Stephen Walkom. Not complaining as a Wings fan but officiating has been disgusting all playoff run long.

It was a bad call…..but no worse than the penalty shot that was called in game 6….

seriously a penalty shot and a waived off goal with minutes left in a game 7…..just shows how bad officiating in the league has gotten (and I blame Bettman) and these were guys with many years experience…

You can thank Terry Gregson for the crappy refereeing in the NHL since 2009.

Terry Gregson, who spent 25 years as an NHL referee, was named the League’s Senior Vice President and Director of Officiating Tuesday. In his new position, Gregson, who officiated 1,427 regular-season and 158 Stanley Cup Playoff games, will assume overall management of the officiating staff.

“I’ve watched and been a part of the direction the game has taken in the last four years and have been excited to be a part of it,” Gregson told NHL.com. “We’re going to stay the course. It is a great opportunity to continue on and keep things going in the right direction.”

NHL Senior Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell said Gregson, who was the senior officiating manager under Stephen Walkom, will enable the League’s officials to enjoy a smooth transition in leadership.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
