Usually if the refs doing a good job of managing the game and making calls, you either don't need to talk to him or you're in the wrong.

And usually if the refs doing a crap job, he's going to have an attitude with you if you start arguing calls.

Two examples from last summer:

1. I get called for crosschecking. I tell the ref I'm just trying to get position in front of the net. Turns out he called me for a play I made right after that when I shoved a guy over to get at the puck That ref was Jack Carlson, you can look him up if you want...obviously a good player and a good ref.

2. We're on the PK, our guy clears the puck up the boards right into the ref at the line. Ref curses at him and sends him to the box for abuse of official. He's clearly wrong, then when the guy asks him what he was supposed to do with the puck, the ref threatens to toss him from the game and suspend him. I've had nothing but problems with this particular ref.
