NHL agrees to new goalie interference procedure

Change still needs approval from players’ association, board of governors:

 

Quote

NHL general managers have decided to give the final decision on goalie interference video reviews to the league's hockey operations department.

 

Commissioner Gary Bettman made the official announcement Wednesday at the conclusion of the GM meetings in Florida.

 

Using a tablet and headset, referees on the ice have been making the final determination after speaking with the league's situation room in Toronto.

 

But after some high-profile and controversial decisions, GMs now want hockey ops to get final say on what has quickly become the league's most polarizing rule.

 

The plan is to also add a retired referee to the situation room to assist with goalie interference calls.

 

The NHL Players' Association has to sign off on the change, as does the board of governors, which will need a unanimous vote to make the switch in-season.

 

Bettman says he doesn't expect there to be any issues and hopes to have the new process green-lighted in time for the playoffs.

 

Coaches have been allowed to challenge for goalie interference since the start of the 2015-16 season.

Adding a retired ref to the situation room is a good idea.

They'll still find a way to screw the calls up, like they do with others such as kick ins.

 

Should at least be fewer hiccups though.

This reminds me of working for a corporation. Let's put through a new procedure to handle a growing problem. But instead of testing to make sure they have covered all the bases correctly they institute a half assed plan and have to spend countless hours reworking it and likely never ending up with a finished product that they desired in the first place.

At least Burrows doesn't play here anymore, therefore we shouldn't have a problem with Stephane Auger.

This is not something where you can always get the call right even after video review so why bother having it. Same can be said for offside as you cannot always tell if a skate is in contact with the ice or not. The fan experience at the rink is not the same as it used to be when there was jubilant celebration after the home team scored. Now, everyone is looking around to see if there is going to be a challenge.

The NHL has always said video review will help them get the call right and thereby avoid a blatant offside or goalie interference that resulted in a game winning goal or Cup winning goal. That is only true, however, if a team has a challenge left when the blown call happens so the same risk they are trying to eliminate is still there.

Personally, other than a review to determine if the puck entered the net, I would like to rid the game of the entire review process Put the game back in the hands of the officials who are being paid to get the calls right, even if we sometimes(?) are not going to agree with those calls.

Just take one of the refs off the ice and put him on video review duties in house.

Put him on head set with the on ice referee.

He couldn't see the play if it was presented on a 60" 4k, 5 feet from his face.

Good to see they included Bill McCreary. He may be the best and most likeable referee in NHL history.

Rule change approved regarding goaltender interference:

 

Quote

NEW YORK/TORONTO - The National Hockey League's Board of Governors has approved changes to Rule 78.7 (ii) Coach's Challenge - Goaltender Interference, the League announced today.

 

The changes were recommended by the NHL's General Managers at their March Meeting and subsequently approved by the NHL/NHLPA Competition Committee.

 

The updated rule, as written below (with changes underlined), will be implemented for games as of Wednesday, March 28.

 

(ii) Scoring Plays Involving Potential "Interference on the Goalkeeper"

 

(c) The standard for overturning the call in the event of a "GOAL" call on the ice is that the NHL Situation Room (which shall include a former referee in the Officiating Department in the decision-making process), after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Referee who made the original call, determines that the goal should have been disallowed due to "Interference on the Goalkeeper," as described in Rules 69.1, 69.3 and 69.4.

 

(d) The standard for overturning the call in the event of a "NO GOAL" call on the ice is that the NHL Situation Room (which shall include a former referee in the Officiating Department in the decision-making process), after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Referee who made the original call, determines that the goal on the ice should have been allowed because either: (i) there was no actual contact of any kind initiated by the attacking Player with the goalkeeper; or (ii) the attacking Player was pushed, shoved or fouled by a defending Player causing the attacking Player to come into contact with the goalkeeper; or (iii) the attacking Player's positioning within the crease did not impair the goalkeeper's ability to defend his goal and, in fact, had no discernible impact on the play.
