Chris Lee. Especially if he's doing a game that includes Boston.

Or that it is so bad that one doesnt stick out. I honestly believe it is the most inconsistent officiated major sport. You don't have to make all the calls but you have to make all calls consistent.

o'halloran

he calls holmstrom for imaginary goalie interference several times per season, and (it seems) much more often than other officials do.

Yep, no-brainer for Detroit fans.

If O'Halloran is officiating a Detroit game, you can pretty much count on a goal being called off because Homlstrom's on the ice.

Mike Hassenfratz and Justin St. Pierre, both of them are morons in my opinion.

Assenfratz and McDreary for sure. If I have to pick one, it's Assenfratz. He's just horrible, in fact he's "have you put all your money on the home team to win?" horrible. He constantly favours the home team in a brutally obvious way.

My top 5 worst refs (mostly east coast games):
1. Hasenfratz
2. McCreary
3. Koharski
4. Fraser
5. Devorski

This is a huge problem, yes. However, you would think professional referees who has as a full time job could be a little bit better to cooperate with eachother and try to sync the level they blow the whistle at. Do these clowns even talk to eachother?

A way around to improve the reffing would be to fit refs into partner pairings that mainly work with eachother. They would hopefully develop good chemistry, however I doubt this with the guys on my list.

Dan O'Halloran is my homeboy--my last name is Hallaren and there are really not a lot of us around.

Other than that, Fraser is a dope.

Hasenfratz and its not even close for the Rangers. Ever since that Chicago game where they had 3 5-3's and multiple other phantom calls against us.

Greg Kimmerly seems like he has it out for the Jackets ever since Peca grabbed his arm and then was suspended for it.

It seems to me that this has become so much less of an issue than in the past. Refs still blow calls but there is far more black and white now in the rulebook. You see a guy with a stick parallel to the ice near somebody's mid-section, the call is almost automatic. I don't mind the fact there is a little less subjectivity.

What makes me cringe is having to listen to color analysts complain about a marginal call. The worst offenders of this are Tampa Bay's Bobby Taylor, Detroit's Mickey Redmond and Florida's Denis Potvin. It drives me crazy. They can't accept any call against their team, it seems.

Kerry Fraser had his head so far up Gretzkys arse in 1992 he could still draw a composite sketch to this day.

Any french canadian official that wants to prove he is not a habs fan by giving them a lot of penalties.

Oh.. and Mr. Chris Lee.

Agree with both.

How can anyone hate McCreary? Best NHL ref by a mile IMO.

Fraser reffed the Stars-Flames game the other day, holding up play after the Flames scored, to determine whether or not they had scored in the same play, but just seconds previous. After lengthy review, original goal stood.

While he was on the phone, Ralph and Razor were letting him have it though, saying all he needed was a chinstrap and he was good to go.
