“Of course some refs don’t like some personalities on our team, but anyway, you have to respect us. We’re emotional, we’re in the game. When we say something bad to linesmen or bad to referees, we can’t give them two minutes when they yell at me or they yell at coaches or yell somebody. It’s kind of position when they have to give us a break.
“If we’re over [the] top of our yelling or screaming, yeah, of course you have to give us two or five or 10, it’s their call. Not like if we say one word to them like you’re gonna get two minutes right away….I think the league and the [NHLPA] have to look at it and make a changes.”
-Alex Ovechkin on the Washington Capitals. More on the lack of respect issue from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider.
