If it's 50% or higher than the officials call is more or less random in these spots (not "random" per say but that it's extremely hard for him to make sure) and then there is no point using that call as the default
But if you eliminate the original call from the replay picture, how do you deal with reviews where you can't see the entire puck cross the line? Do you really want Toronto deciding that?
