I don't see how anyone could vote "no goal" after reading the memo the NHL sent out in March.
It is correct that goals like that were called off before under the stupid "no goal" rule, but were any after the March memo?
Basically, the foot in the crease rule was a horrible rule that would call off goals for essentially an arbitrary reason. The NHL looks to have relaxed the horrible rule in March, before the 1999 playoffs started.
For what it's worth, I thought it was technically no goal for, well, like a decade, until I saw evidence of the memo sent out that March. Guess Buffalo screamed so loud for so long, that everyone believed them.
