Come on, Brook. Much as we still do not like the way things have gone on the ice, I think that we can agree that this year's version has been much better than prior ones. This year's verison has worked harder. But the officiating results are still the same. You cannot argue with facts. And the facts are that the Rangers have the 2nd worst differntial between PP's and PK's in the league. Add that to the amount of non-calls that we witness nearly every game and you have one-sided reffing.
Again, do not misconstrue what I am saying. The refs ARE NOT solely responsible for the 10 losses. The refs cannot cause Poti to clear the crease anymore than they can prevent Hlavac from overpassing. However, they can have a direct effect on the amount of times the Rangers are shorthanded or have the extra man. And they have had a direct effect on that. Facts are facts and like in a court of law, they are hard to dispute.
