Enter the Dodo

According to a Score Boards Canes MB post, Chris Lee is one of the two officials refereeing tonight's Canes contest against the Thrashers.

Also according to a response to the post, Lee is one of the absolute worst officials in the League...possibly even more nearsighted than Tim Peel and Mike Hasenfratz (of whom, as longtime readers know, I've NEVER been fond).

Which leads me to ask: Does the NHL seriously pay ANY attention to the rivalries they're bolstering AND promoting the begeezus out of? If they *really* did, they wouldn't assign refs like Chris Lee to a Canes/Thrashers game that is very much guaranteed to be incredibly heated enough as it is. I will not be the least bit surprised if all hell breaks loose in the form of a TON of (more than likely stupid, be it by either team OR whatever the heck the refs "see") penalties and/or fights tonight. o_O
