Hecklers, Hooligans and the Striped-Shirted Maitre D
Huffington Post Sports - over 2 years
As is the case with any human relationship, there are some players and coaches that officials get along with better than others. Likewise, these relationships can change for the better or for the worse over time. As a referee, I generally enjoyed dealing with the players and, to a lesser extent, the coaches. Honestly, I often got my biggest kick out of dealing with hockey fans. As a matter of fact, I have developed some of my closest friendships with hockey fans who heckled me. One time I was in Toronto and there was a man in the stands behind the bench sitting with a stunningly beautiful woman next to him.

Those cap issues are related to the contracts of (sit down for safety..): Mike Komisarek, Colby Armstrong, Matthew Lombardi, Tim Connolly, & John-Michael Liles…ooh, AND the fact that if they’re ever to make the playoffs, and (gulp!) advance in them as 59 different hockey collectives have done since the Leafs last did, they may need to spend money on a goaltender.  Good luck there. 5. Grabovski held all the power and all the leverage in this negotiation — so of course the Leafs overspent…and it was the only course of action. 6. Once Ales Hemsky got $5 million a year (again, NOT a crazy overpayment given market tendencies and comparable players ...
