Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean was not amused by Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mason Raymond's spin-o-rama, snow-and-score goal against Craig Anderson, and I guess this falls under the, "Ask a prickly question, receive an equally grumpy answer" category.
NHL senior VP of hockey operations Colin Campbell replied to MacLean's, "Should this be allowed?" question with an answer whose tone hisses through NHL.com's webpage:
"If the puck stops, or if the player's momentum stops, and particularly reverses, then there's an issue," Campbell said. "The problem is if you're skating forward, you can pull the puck back, or stickhandle, and that will stop [the puck] at times, or a curl-and-drag sometimes will stop it. There is some confusion and misinterpretation."
During the summer, the Competition Committee recommended the removal of the spin-o-rama move from the shootout and during penalty-shot attempts. The NHL Board of Governors approved the recommendation, but it was not passed by the executive committee of the NHL Players' Association.
"We've had this discussion at the general managers' meetings on a couple of occasions," Campbell said. "There wasn't a lot of appetite for spin-o-ramas. When you spin around and put your butt into the goaltender or if you go [into] the crease, you are dangerously close to being called for goaltender interference; particularly if you do make contact with the goalie in his crease, it would be disallowed."
(So blame the players)
But wait, there's more, and it's a, "You've all been warned" quip:
