This irritates me to no end because they won't admit that they were wrong. And who cares if they do? The damage is done.

Why would they admit they're wrong? It's really an opinion. First you would need the league definition of "distinct kicking motion" and from there it is a matter of opinion whether a play meets that criteria or not. Ultimately it's an opinion as opposed to something as black and white as a puck crossing a line.

 

My opinion: hockey is played with a stick and a puck. All goals should need to be shot into the net with a stick.

Every single goal disallowed in the video has less of a kicking motion that Kuhnhackl's goal.... Poor poor decision...

I scanned through the first page or so of youtube results and pulled those up. That's how easy it was to show the league's inconsistency

Consistency. You are overthinking this big time.

Yeah it really disappointing to say the least.

I actually have a few choice words regarding this decision, but they would rather hard to read for all the #@%& etc

Simpler said than done. Perhaps you're under thinking it. How do you get consistency on a call that's subject to an opinion of a motion?

lets not distract from the fact that tom wilson scored, then was screwed out of a goal, for an interference that happened AFTER the puck was already in the net

Brutal call but doubt it would have changed the outcome of the game.

I don't know how this can continue now that there is video review. I guess we are all blind with "homerism" and we are just looking at this(and many others) with bias eyeballs. 

I like how the NHL also makes it so that no one can comment on referee's actions as well. What a bush league and an embarrassment to our great sport.
