Darryl Sutter On Coaches Challenges

Darryl Sutter answered a few question today and Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider provides us with the information..

On delineating responsibilities for reviewing plays for coaches challenges:

Well, we’re still working on it because some are home, some are road. There are times where Billy obviously has the headset, but there are some buildings that it’s not quite as good as others.

Obviously at home we’re trying to run our cables to we can have an iPad by where the sticks are – you know, when you come out through the tunnel there – so you can look at it quicker.

We have two guys doing video full-time now with two kids. There’s going to be a little bit of a learning curve in it, and you’re not going to be always right.

What’s interesting, I think, is going through with the league, how they see it, the goalie interference one is still going to be mainly handled by the officials, and not very often I can see that being overturned because they still make the best call. There’s very few times they don’t make the right call with goalie interference. I think the one that is going to be a challenge will be the off-side play because there are more off-sides than you think. And even from live coaching, when you look at the video, you go, ‘Holy!.’ You go, ‘Jeez, how the hell did he miss that? How’d you miss that?’ It’s off-side by this much [hand signal] and both feet are in the air.

It’s stuff like that – pucks in the air, but it’s over the line, behind one. That’ll be the one that I think might get challenged....

more plus three other questions...

By the description from Sutter, it sounds as if the physical ability to review will fall onto the team.

I sure hope that is not the case, you would think the NHL would set up devices, etc.

With instant replay and goalie interference, would it be for both plays that interference was called and a goal was taken back AND for plays where a goal was scored and no penalty was called?

In the back of my head I keep thinking of that Glendenning goal (or non-goal) where the goalie tripped over himself.
