So we are almost a week into the 2016 NHL playoffs and while the action is great, I am not exactly loving the coaches challenge! 4 or 5 times we have seen goals wiped out by video replay.
The pace of the games have been affected. Outcomes of games have been changed!
I am all in favor of getting the call right, but it makes me think how many illegal goals have been scored in the past?
Personally, I have no issues with the challenge on goalie interference or if a puck is kicked in. The calls I am starting to hate are the off side challenge. Frame by frame we see the play. Why do we have linesmen anymore? All they do is drop the puck? The challenge seems to take forever!
Technology is a wonderful thing, but I am starting to miss the good old days!
