From TSN:

 

 

The National Hockey League is always looking for ways to improve its accuracy rate when it comes to ruling on controversial goals.

NHL Hockey Operations is expected to meet with a group in the near future that has designed a camera system that can be installed in the posts of the nets. This system may provide a more clear view of the goal line and by design may assist the league in determining - conclusively - whether or not the puck crosses the line.

This meeting was planned well before Tuesday night's game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators where midway through the third period, it appeared Ottawa's Kyle Turris had given his team a 3-2 edge. Turris' shot ricocheted off both of Nicklas Grossmann's skates and from the camera angles provided, it seemingly crossed the goal line.

Veteran referee Paul Devorski immediately waved off the goal and a lengthy video review was unable to warrant overturning the call on the ice.

Check out the scoring chance and the goal here. 

 

I've believed that this sort of technology has been long over due. I think it would rub the referees the wrong way, especially after Uncle Gary has "pumped their tires" during the length of his administration (save for the threats of bringing in scab replacements), saying the League has the "best officials of any major sport".  However, I also think that the League has been woefully slow in attempting to put properly trained on-ice officials in their games; Bettman telling telling the world about the great job his officials are doing doesn't necessarily make it so.

I doubt that this "new technology" is going to appear anytime soon, but...

Yay or nay?

I'm all for it, I think it's a great idea. It will also help when the goalie tries to block the camera from seeing the puck

If a camera is placed anywhere on the goalposts u can bet they'll be sniped into oblivion more times than theyre actually used.

I suspect they will be internal cameras with little exposure to the pucks.

Right. they'll likely be in the post entirely with a small hole for the lens.

I'm sure said cameras will be shock proof too.. I don't see them breaking too often. then again I could be wrong

 

either way, I don't see any reason not to try it

I'm for the cameras but it doesn't help when the puck is in the goalie's glove or the goalie is covering the puck with his body.  I'd like to see the technology using sensors and the goal line so it can be determined using that technology, if the entire puck crosses the goal line.

its strange to think that a satellite in space can tell exactly where your car is on the whole planet, and they cant come up with a system to keep track of a puck.

When a guy like Chara is loading up fro his slapshot, the camera will be sheltered into tons of little pieces, no matter how shockproof this thing is.
