He follows up the article with a shameless plug for his book "The Final Call"
Fraser recounts a story about calling goalie interference on Homer...heres some quotes from it, you guys will love this!
Fraser has already premeditated giving Holmstrom a penalty during this game.
as I anticipated, I would have to step up from my position at the blue line and call a penalty on Holmstrom
A phenomenal call? please.
Mickey Redmond, a former 50-goal scorer for Detroit and long-time colour commentator on Wings television broadcasts, didn't agree (imagine that), but it was a phenomenal call.
Fraser made the call from 65 feet away! Interesting. What about the ref down low? Why didn't he make the call?
we officials only have a fraction of a millisecond to see and make a judgment on. This was one of those times, and from 65 feet away.
Do I really believe Homer said this with a grin on his face as he happily entered the box? Not unless he was being sarcastic. Does anyone have video of this call? Id love to see what actually happened.
A wide grin broke out across Holmstrom's face, as he smiled and said, "That's why you're the best!" and then stepped into the penalty box.
