well, at least you guys aren't short on reasons why you don't care.


I think the refs has been worse this year than they usually are, especially with penalties that they didn't call as much as the ones they did. To have quite a few suspensions given after the games when they only got 2 mins in the game is just crap. Only benifits the next team that team plays instead of the team where the infraction happened. That system would also ensure that Tollefsen gets thrown out every other period So everybody wins
