There are two problems here. One with the rule, and one with the replay.

Rule: It's way too subjective and unclear what is and isn't a goal and needs to be clarified. Personally, I think it should count as a goal as long as during the moment of contact with the puck the entire skate is in contact with the ice. If any part of the skate is off the ice - no goal.

Replay: And I have this issue with all sports. Once it goes to replay the original call should be 100% irrelevant (excluding the situation where you can't see ANYTHING on replay which would mean on the replay you can not see the puck at all. Or in football the balls at the bottom of the pile and someone comes out with it. Obviously you can't see through people). The call made by replay should just be as if this is the first time the play is seen and make the call that looks to be correct. Not searching for something that disputes the call that was made in real time as there is no evidence that call was right or not.
