You're splitting some fine hairs. The NFL reviews whether a catch was made and that the player had both feet in bounds. They review all challenges (out side 2min of a half) if a coach is upset with the call on the field.

What I'm proposing is different. You don't review all offsides. You review the ones that resulted in goals and are challenged. Why wouldn't you want to get it right, especially in a championship game? You sound like people who didn't like video review in the NFL. Now everyone loves it. At least I do, I want the plays called right. The NFL is the best officiated sport in the world. The NHL needs to learn from them.
