Not a big deal. I normally feel the same way about the refs as he does apparently. If they aren't wearing your color, go for it!

Where is the draft this year? I wanted to go last year but I couldn't get myself to go.

Also for all of the griping people do (not really anyone in this thread) about the Rangers taking too many "grinders" or not skilled players, they certainly have tried in the past few years it seems.

2010:
McIlrath - Big, tough, skilled defensively
Thomas - Skilled
Yogan - Big and skilled
Wilson - tough guy
Fasth - Skilled
McNaught - tough guy

2011:
Miller - Big and skilled
Fogarty - Big and skilled
St Croix - Skilled
McColagn - Skilled
Noreau - Big and tough
Ceresnak - Bleh

2012:
Skjei - Big and Skilled
Nieves - Big and Skilled
Andersson - Skilled
Spelling - Skilled

I would say they have been leaning towards skilled players for a while now.
