Can somebody please explain what the NHL's logic is behind that? I racked my brain and couldn't think of anything.
You can't review everything. So it is cut down to important issues like goals. Even if an offside non-call results in a goal you have to draw a line somewhere or we'll have a bunch of those review sessions every game instead of the actual game. Anyway there were times when all calls were made by the refs on the ice, you know? and it worked.
