Video- Why Recent Ryan Getzlaf Goal Should Have Been Waived Off

from Kerry Fraser of TSN,

...Ryan Getzlaf's goal should have been disallowed once Tim Jackman initiated contact with Jets goalkeeper Michael Hutchinson inside his crease area. Even though Jackman's skates were outside the goal crease, his right elbow intruded significantly inside the blue paint and made solid contact with Hutchinson's head...

Most fans will probably agree that video review is badly needed to make accurate decisions on this very difficult call. For three seasons now I have lobbied that a monitor be placed in the penalty box for the referees to implement video review in an effort to make the correct decision. Through the use of video, the on-ice officials would then have the same advantage as the rest of the hockey world to review a potentially controversial goal.
