Terry Gregson Needs to Review the officiating of Steven Walkom

03/20/2011 at 3:20pm EDT

I have seen several games this that Stephen Walkom has refereed. I have been less than impressed with the on ice calls of the former Director of Officials..

First, I’ll admit that I believe being an NHL referee is the most difficult refereeing/umpiring job in sports.

Second, I proudly admit that I am a biased Red Wings fan.

While I am not wining about the Red Wings loss to the Preds on Saturday night 3-1. However, the standard of officiating in that game was amongst the worst I’ve seen. I am not only complaining about the wrong call taking away a Wings goal because the goaltender interference. However, ironically just after the GM meetings about player safety and addressing concussions, the pair refereeing the game obviously did not get the memo. Elbows directly targeting the head were ignored, , repeated punches to the head from behind allowed and charging/ boarding were let go.

I’m not sure every game is reviewed for the quality of officiating, but Terry Gregson, you need to ok at this one. Maybe Walkom is better suited to reviewing calls from the press box.
