So the NHL is going to investigate and fine Murphy?

About time!

I know Terry Murray is getting a lot of grief around here lately, but his comment was 100% on the money.

Quote:
"I don't know why we have video replay in the National Hockey League,'' Murray said. "That's all I can say. If the replay is there for review of goals and non-goals… I don't know. You've got a guy who gets credit for the goal. He's 6-foot-6, and the stick is up above his head. Matt Greene is 6-3, and he's batting the puck down with his hand beside his ear, and the net is four feet high. It doesn't add up.

"It makes no sense. No sense. How does it get called on the ice a goal, first of all, and then how does the replay hold it up? I don't know. I don't have an answer.''
If the guys in the War Room in Toronto refuse to use even the brains that God gave to half-wits, and when they review the play they refuse to remember exactly how tall these players are, then they are entirely useless for such calls. It's an absolute travesty and the league indeed has some investigating to do of its bush-league video review crew and system.

Here is Murphy's explanation. If thats the case why was Hanzal credited with the goal?

Murphy defended his team's decision during the Kings' broadcast on Fox, saying there was no conclusive replay to overturn the goal. He said the crew in Toronto never saw the puck conclusively hit Hanzal's stick, while all the on-ice officials agreed on the goal call.

The league better investigate who manufacturers these pucks then, because that puck magically changed direction in mid air.. I guess it could be the heavy sea level air caused friction therefore stopping the pucks upward momentum abruptly.. If this was Denver that puck would have flown over the glass..

I just like seeing the passion from Lombardi regardless of how this plays out.

I have a problem with Lombardi's quote since he alleges bias, which is not true. It is more of a problem with the system and I agree with Murray's quote. Lombradi should have just blasted the NHL video review system. If the NHL says that they didn't see the puck deflect off of Hanzel, yet they give him the official goal, then you have a problem with the system. You can't have one without the other.

Lombradi should have kept Murphy's name out of his rant, but I hope his purpose was to spark a debate about how video review is used in the NHL. I still don't see how 4 officials on the ice can miss a 6'6" player with his stick above his shoulders.

It was the right thing to do.

When is the NHL going to apologize to all the fans for the incorrect calls that their lame video review system yields?

Exactly. Tomorrow they are going to dig that puck out of Governor Brown's thigh.

I just took a look at the "goal" and it's worse than the disallowed goal by Versteeg:

You all seem to have missed an extremely important part of the apology story:

"Asked if he was trying to deflect attention away from his team which has been slumping after a terrific start, Lombardi admitted, "Yeah, there was some of that.""

On Versteeg's goal...if you watch at the :57 mark...the linesman immediately rules high stick, and appropriately makes the correct call when a Leaf touches the puck.

The ruling was Versteeg played the puck to himself with a high-stick...not that he batted it in.

Funny how the league can investigate coaches and players but never referees or the war room, at least not publicly. When does this change, especially since they made the original mistake in this instance.

What's "extremely important" about that part of the story?

DL just admitted that his statement wasn't just an accidentally verbalized off-the-cuff rant made in the heat of indignation. It was a planned and calculated move - one of the effects of which was to deflect attention away from his underperforming team.

In other words, we were being played.

It was a very smart move by Lombardi.

Why does he say this at the end, then?

Quote:
When the guy in Toronto making the decisions on the goals, in Ottawa and the one tonight, wanted the G.M.s job in L.A. and was not happy about not getting it, you have to assume you are going to get those type of calls. However, we have put ourselves in a position where these calls have a monumental effect on our season, and were going to have to find a way out of it ourselves.

i think "being played" is a little extreme. i'm sure he was more than happy to distract from the end result, but i don't doubt that he was actually pissed.

I think you're getting a little paranoid on this one

I think he got mad, grabbed Rich, said something stupid, and went to bed. In the morning, he woke up with a blistering hangover and felt the need to apologize.
