I still don't know why the scoring judge desk in the NHL doesn't have, like, a small display or an iPad or something so that the refs can watch what the video judges in Toronto are looking at when a play goes to review. Y'know, take a proactive approach to making sure the right call was made. It's a tough job, after all.

I would suspect it's because of some sort of 'independent review'/'integrity' thing, except they're talking with the refs the whole time that they're reviewing, so that's already silly. Heck, if they're asking him about details during the play, that could speed up the review process.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
