Questioning The Spin-O-Rama Move

from Wayne Scanlan of Senators Extra,

Senators head coach Paul MacLean was surprised to see Mason Raymond’s spin move allowed in Toronto’s shootout win over Ottawa.

“I was on a conference call at the start of the year with all the other coaches and was informed at that time that that play would be seriously reviewed and you were taking a chance it would be an illegal play and the goal would be disallowed.

So, MacLean cautioned his players. (Do any Sens do it, now that Kaspars Daugavins is gone?).

“I think it’s a very unfair play for the guy to come in and blow snow on the goaltender to me he came to a full stop, the puck went backwards and then forwards.”

The last I heard on the spin-o-rama move was the GM's wanted it removed, the NHL did not but I never read much more on it.

I think as long as the puck is moving, this type of move should be allowed.

Watch the Raymond goal below...

This type of move shouldn’t count.  It doesn’t take much skill and the snow screen is cheap.

An email from Colin Campbell, the NHL’s senior executive vice president of hockey operations, stated the Senators had no valid complaint.

“Participants on the conference call should listen a little more attentively,” he wrote.

“We said spinorama moves on shootouts will be more closely observed for infractions regarding goalie interference and non-continuous motion of player or puck. Please give your players this message.’”
