The referees are in on a conspiracy to push my team to win the Stanley Cup, so I honestly don't care who is wearing the stripes, I know they're actively trying to make my team win.



Wes McCauley is the best.

I actually like Romasko a lot among some of the newer refs, I'm probably one of the only ones in that regard.
Fraser and Mcreary were similar like that. When they got pissed off, they seemed to double down and take it out on the team. It would be infuriating to watch but my perception is that Fraser was a more frequent offender of this than Mcreary was.

Yep, exactly the kind of thing I'm talking about the clouded my opinion of Fraser slightly. It wasn't one-sided or anything, but yeah it definitely felt like it would be a parade to the box if someone did something to really **** him off.

Referees: Wes McCauley, Dan O'Halloran, Kevin Pollock, Kelley Sutherland, and Mike Leggo (he retired after this season though)

Linesmen: Pierre Racicot

I don't know many of the linesmen though, since they don't have as much of an effect on the outcome of a game as referees do.
