And honestly, this sounds like crying over spilled milk. When Washington does it..twice, it should be called a penalty, but when the Rangers do it, the rule is stupid.

I like it, keep it, and in McDonagh's case, he stood there a good 3-4 seconds surveying the ice when he did that brainfart.
I think it's a stupid rule for both sides. I don't think a game should be decided on an innocent mistake. Yes in the past it was done purposely. I like the suggestion by Zenith it to make it like the icing rule. No TV timeout and players remain on the ice. You shouldn't get a man advantage for it.
