Look, I know refereeing is an incredibly hard job. These guys are human, they have emotions and they make mistakes. But, at the NHL level I would expect more self control. I don't want the NHL turning into major league baseball where you see the ump and a coach screeching at each other like kids in the sandbox.
Keep your emotions in check, be consistent, and call the game for the full 60 minutes. That's all I ask.
As a ref, I'll gladly tell a coach what I think of them/their team...
