Whistle Blower

from The Good, The Bad And The Duthie,

Video review works.  With the HD cameras it has in every building now, the NHL has virtually eliminated those “Was it a goal or not?” controversies.  They usually get it right.  So why not take it to the final frontier?  Allow reviews of early whistles.


Please refrain from eye-rolling.  And don’t give me that old line about once the whistle blows, nothing else matters.  We’re not talking about things that occur two or three or five seconds after the whistle.  All these goals happen within a fraction of a second.  It’s simple:  if the puck is on its way in when the whistle blows, and the folks in the video review room in Toronto decide the whistle should not have blown, the goal should count.
