Was just reading Bob McKenzie and a few other's tweets.

Seems Canucks fans feel that their goal was disallowed by Toronto not because of intent to kick but because Mike Murphy played for and coached the Kings. :lol:

I'd be one step closer to believing in a conspiracy too if I were a Nucks fan.

No fans are more paranoid than Wings fans. Nucks fans appear to be trying to mount a challenge, but they have a way to go yet.

Not sure if everyone saw the play, but pretty amazing that they called that back. The call on the ice was a goal, so in order to call it back, you needed conclusive evidence. If you look at the video, I find it impossible to call that back, but someone did. I would even suggest that if the call on the ice was no goal, you'd change it to a goal because it was pretty clear that there was no kicking motion.

Especially after that whole Auger nonsense earlier this season.

I'm a high school drop out, and I find that clip highly offensive.

A couple more bad calls like this on teams not named LA, Phoenix, Chicago or Pittsburgh and I think people can have a case that the league is trying to influence who moves on.

I'm surprised there was no goal here.He didn't go out of his way to direct the puck into the net with a distinct kicking motion.In no way/shape/form did he kick it in.He was driving to the net.

If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

wow, either that guy is either borderline retarded, and actually believes his failed reasoning, or is in fact the worst bulls***er ever. seriously, if the league is going to hire incompetent officials you would figure they would at least hire ones that can make it through a two minute interview without contradicting their own reasoning.

What a traveshamockery. The NHL's replay system is a total mess.

And on top of them being wrong 50% of the time, replays are now taking like 5 minutes each. That one last night went on foreverrrrrrrrrr

wow haven't seen the goal before that, i just assumed Nucks fans were bitching over nothing. But man he didn't "kick" the puck at all, he directed it yes, but didn't kick it. Bad call
There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

So basically, Mike Murphy just said they decided to change the rules for that particular instance.

He also said the league wanted more goals, which is why they originally expanded the rule about pucks off skates. Yet while wanting more goals off skates, this one doesn't count because he "twisted his toe" and the puck came back off his skate too fast. It really is a crock of s***.

I'm also starting to buy the Mike Murphy/Kings bias here. This league is either corrupt or just incredibly stupid. Possibly a bit of both.

Evidence that the wrong call was made. "Not a distinct kicking motion but a kicking motion"

When I was watching it, I got the feeling that they were going to call it back. The reason why though is not involved in any of the videos shown on the replay now. There was a view where it looked like he went out of his way to "stop" right where the puck would go. If that was why they called it back, it's a pretty bad call, and if it was what was said in the video? Pretty bad still. Of course, as Wings fans we should have already known the results of a team that didn't play the full 60 mins, right?
