Skinner's young, but he isn't green any more -- I'd think he has some latitude with the refs at this point.
He did, and he went down clutching his face, and he didn't get the call. But that wasn't the instance where he yelled so loudly at the refs that the entire arena and TV audience could hear him. That instance was when he went in on the forecheck and got tangled up with Sulzer, and that was definitely not worth endangering your credibility with the referees over. And every time he whines, that's what he's putting on the line.
