Just bought tickets to Game 3. Staying at the Quality Inn Downtown. 3rd time to Montreal but never had time to actually explore. Any good restaurants in the area? Good places to go after the game? Thanks

- Comment on Playoff-bound Habs get day off in Florida; Murray faces NHL hearing (2014-04-02 15:54:50)
Paid very well, Really???? I've reffed for 23 years... I am a level 4 and ref AAA hockey on a regular basis in the GTA An OHL ref gets probably around $60-$70. They must arrive almost an hour before the game. All in they are there for about 4 hours. That's about $17.50 / hour, which is obviously better than flipping burgers but for the abuse it's not a lot. We have no workers compensation and no benefits. We must pay for a "tertiary" POS insurance plan. Lets just say it's not for the money. I do it for the exercise and quite honestly I very much enjoy it That being said in 23 years of reffing I have: Had garbage cans and many other objects thrown at me My car vandalized Punched in the face numerous times by players and parents Verbally abused almost daily Death threats Countless bruises Cracked rib Fat lips Witnessed numerous parents fighting in the stands filled out 3 police reports Been in the Toronto Star twice Had the police called as parents wanted me charged with assault. The last stat I heard was still well above 50% of first year referees don't return. It was at 80% for a while and it may still be up there. btw I agree Lee is brutal.

- Comment on Preseason wraps up with back-to-back games against Senators (2013-09-25 11:20:50)
Two years ago 2 buddies and I flew from Buffalo - Washington. Got a hotel and went to the HABS games. We then flew from Washington to Miami and went to the Habs/Panthers game. Spent a day or two partying it up in Miami. We then drove to Tampa watched another HABS game and stayed on St. Pete's beach. We then flew from Tampa back to Buffalo. Including all hockey tickets (3 games), air fare, hotels and rental cars it was $886.00 each for 6 days. Next season 14-15 I'm planning the same thing for the west coast. LA - ANA - PHX - SJ. It could probably be done for $1000.
