Is This Elbow Worth A Five Minute Major?

That’s what Ryan Jones received for this hit.

Not sure, but my favorite part of that video is the crazy dive by Tootoo at the end after a little shove.

And Tootoo did get two for diving.

If you watch the hit from the referee’s perspective (which is ice level), he sees Jones’ arm go up during the hit.

Even though it never makes contact, depending on your angle it can look like it did.

All the ref sees is the back of Geoffrion and Jones’ arm come up high through the hit. He has to call what he sees.

The solution is to keep refs off the ice and make calls from TV monitors.

No. The solution is for refs to only call things they actually SEE. Not to fill in the blanks with guesses.

So does that mean the puck will be dropped from the rafters on face-offs?

Since there was no elbow thrown, no.

I don’t even think that was a penalty, let alone a 5 minuter…

Wastelands is 100% correct - the refs cannot make a call on something they THINK they have seen.  They have to be 100% certain or they cannot (should not) call it.

Shouldn’t have been a penalty.  Geoffrion needs to take clean hits better than that; he only got winded.
