Linesman that get the hell out of the way would be good, too. . . .

Amen to that! Good to see you Zam. We sure had fun the last cup run. :D

Hey lady :evil: Will PM you back when things are up and running. . . or email. Yep, last Cup run was a memory I will always treasure. The WeeOne is trying to scarf my gold logo charm, ain't happenin'! Will be in touch. . .

Maybe the refs' orange bands could go around their necks with a string attached. . .questionable call, they get a yank. It'd be like ball dunking at local carnivals! :dance: (<--I have missed this dude as well)

i always hated the linesman and wished crosschecks and pucks upon them. we destroyed one twice last night so that makes me happy.

they have no puck or play understanding and are always on the way of the play. do we really need a frickin guy to tell us offside or not on ice? just have the goal judge type guy sit on the line and hit a light when someone is offside or there is icing or whatever the ref needs consult with.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

Seriously this is garbage.

We lost 6-1. Got a bad call or non call, don't give up three goals on one powerplay. The Kings didn't cry and moan when they had to kill a 5 on 3 pp in game 3. They went ahead and killed the thing and made it look easy at that.

Leave the whining and conspiracy theories to Ranger fans.


This.

This is ridiculous. You really think these guys work their way up to the ranks of NHL officials without understanding how to play the game? Sometimes the game is just too fast for them to get out of the way, although Racicot getting in the way of Volchenkov last night was a big snafu and he probably should have seen him coming. I said on here years ago the linesman should be off the ice in a goal judge type booth on the lines, but you need guys to break up scrums while the refs make sure they can see everything happening to call the right penalties.
