I think the amount of calls that would end up being challenged
overturned would be so insignificant that it's not worth making any type of new procedure.
The same thing could have been said about the touching the puck with a high stick for a goal. I can think of maybe 1 or 2. None the less it can change the out come of a game. What if that was game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals? Would your mindset still be the same?
