The NHL refs are not what bugs the hell out of me. It's the linesmen.

Drop the puck. Lord, tell them to drop the puck.

It seems like every time two centres line up to take a face-off, one is thrown out. Sometimes both. Sometimes the OTHER linesman standing at the other side of the rink makes the call to throw one of them out. Sometimes it feels like they are trying to take over the entire game. It's ridiculous.

Case in point, during the Leafs/Flyers game. Nearing the end of the 1st, the Leafs centre was thrown out. As I flipped out, the Flyers fans started to boo and even the TSN broadcasters took note, saying, "This must be some sort of record for most face-off ejections."

It's awful and it needs to stop.
