I mean come on, am I the only one who thinks it is beyond preposterous this coaches challenge thing that's been going around the league for months now? The amount of unintended consequences that would come from a coach being able to challenge penalties far outweighs the benefit.

Regarding specifically what the OP wrote: Every goal in Toronto is reviewed. They can easily the widen the scope to include looking at every scenario (aside from penalties) that surrounded the play from the time the puck was dropped previously, but I think that's ridiculous, anyway. Can you imagine one of these reviews: "after video review, a hand pass was undetected in the defensive zone three minutes and 39 seconds ago, therefore it's no goal."

Additionally, refs can take a look at every "incidental contact" call that results in a goal.

There's zero that can and will ever be done about last nights scenario. The idiot called a penalty.
