Video- The Problem With The Patrick Marleau Goal Last Night

from Kerry Fraser of TSN,

From his position behind the net, referee Watson's initial instinct was to wave off the goal. Something obviously didn't smell right for him as he looked through the back of Reimer and Nazem Kadri. The ref immediately looked for input from the other members of the officiating crew. A decision to allow the goal must have resulted from that conference.

Since video replay is unable to rule upon a potential violation of goalkeeper interference, their only input on this play was to establish that the puck entered the net, hence the "good goal" terminology. General managers, please provide the referees with the capability to more accurately determine the presence of goalie interference through a video monitor located in the penalty box. Your team just might be recipients of the next "dirty goal" that is allowed unjustly.


Watch the goal below...

Do the NHL GMs have any interest in the “integrity” of this game?

Challenge flag from bench boss, getting rid of shootouts, trapezoid rule, perhaps even putting red line rule back in book to eliminate players that loaf around blue lines waiting for stretch pass.

Incredible in 2015 this league is still trailing MLB and even NFL in common sense rules but hey this league has a little napoleon like Commish that has been leading it for about as long as castro was running Cuba lol.
