I think the fact that there were 7 Canucks on the ice and Lucic was in the process of changing lines also led to the dismissal of any suspension. Maybe I should refer you back to an entry I made several years ago now in which I cited a National Post article (Toronto newspaper of course) from the mid-1990's where the St. Louis Blues brass had made a complaint to the league where they believed Toronto was receiving preferential treatment from the league officials because St. Louis was one of only 2 teams in the league to have less power play opportunities at home than the opposition, while Toronto was leading the league in pp for and pp against differential. What wasn't divulged in the article until a further investigation into it by the Calgary Herald (in a later article) was that the other team with a *minus* PP for/against differential at home was Calgary and the numbers were such that St. Louis was only a minus 2, whereas Calgary was a whopping minus 120. Other than my efforts to make a point in here every so often, I have never heard Calgary fans complain about this fact even though it was exposed quite thoroughly in the Calgary media (and I believe in other cities around North America)
My point being, Calgary fans have never used this excuse to explain away their team's failings even though they had obvious means to do so. The team that did use this dubious statistic to point a finger at "unfair officiating", had only a marginal case at best. Maybe those Vancouver fans that think there is some sort of conspiracy against their team should take a look at this same statistical category for their team and see how it stacks up against the numbers I have just presented here and see if you still think you have a legitimate claim for being unjustly discriminated against by the league officiating.
