WW: It’s Been Real

They say all good things must come to an end. In the case of “Where’s Watson?” the end came far too soon.

I didn’t want to believe it when the NHL released the schedule of conference finals officials late last week. It just couldn’t be true.

Referees
Paul Devorski (160)
Eric Furlatt (35)
Dave Jackson (64)
Marc Joannette (64)
Dennis LaRue (45)
Bill McCreary (275)
Dan O’Halloran (72)
Kevin Pollock (91)

Linesmen

Derek Amell (59)
Greg Devorski (108)
Shane Heyer (108)
Brad Lazarowich (174)
Steve Miller (42)
Jean Morin (147)
Pierre Racicot (97)
Jay Sharrers (125)

I momentarily thought about contacting the league to tell them there was a misprint and that they accidentally misspelled “Watson” as “Lazarowich” while inadvertently making Watson a lineman. But I figured out would just wait out this OBVIOUS mistake, and the NHL would correct it later. No dice.

After Game 1 of the WCF? Nope.

Game 1 of the ECF? Negative.

It was at this point that I realized our glorious run here on “Where’s Watson?” had come to an end.

So farewell B-Rad. Enjoy your offseason in Saskatchewan. Get in a little golf. Read some new books. Maybe even indulge in a Timbit or two. But don’t forget to practice those arm raises and wave-offs. We want to see you back at the top of your game next season.

**For those who are curious, the fine officials that were ridiculously inconsistent in Game 1 of the WCF were Bill McCreary and Eric Furlatt, with Greg Devorski and Shane Heyer on the lines. Furlatt: You’re on notice. McCreary: You would be too, but you have a sweet moustache.

And who do we get for Game 2? Paul Devorski and Dennis LaRue will be rocking the orange armbands while Derek Amell and Pierre Racicot work the lines.
