In other news Don Cherry says that "immigrants" (not sure even he knows what that means) should buy poppies.

The rule says nothing about control or possession - it says puck first.

No such thing as "full possession" as far as I know. The puck has to be first no matter what.

the call opn Coyle was that he put himself offsides... And that's ok, as long as you're "In full control/possession of the puck"...

So the cal in Toronto was that as the went over the blueline, an Coyle was kicking the puck from one skate blade to the other, it wasn't in contact with his skate blade... and in Toronto's opinion, he did not have "full control of the puack, and the puck want in a hair after the heel of the skate blade... OFFSIDES.

The argument against that decision is NOT that he went in after the puck, it's that he had control of the FUCKING PUCK>

I remember backing in with possession.
Didnít know they changed the rule.
Did they?

Offside rule is: Puck has to cross first, in its entirety before both skates of player (or one skate if the other is off the ground). Whole puck first. That's the entire rule.

wait i missed the context here... what game/call are you talking about?
did they change the rule--you can't back into the zone with possession?
By: chet IP: Date: - 11/9/2019 1:39:48 AM
I do remember when they changed the rule for a period of time where you could cross the line or even back into the zone, etc. as long as you had control of the puck.

I think it was the right call by the letter of the law, but I don't like the rule either. However, the rule is crystal clear:

"83.1 Off-side - Players of the attacking team must not precede the puck
into the attacking zone.
The position of the playerís skates and not that of his stick shall be
the determining factor in all instances in deciding an off-side. A player
is off-side when both skates are completely over the leading edge of
the blue line involved in the play. "

They really dissect the issue there.

It's definitely something the NHL has to address. It's getting stupid... I must agree with the consensus from that show, that there was not enough evidence to reverse the call on the ice: Coyle had ENOUGH control of the puck as he crossed the blueline.

The main complaint among casual NHL or hockey fans in general, is that there's not enough scoring. Then you have the NHL trying to tweak the rules, and tweak the rules and goalie equipment, restricting goalie's area to touch the puck (my LEAST favorite rule) and resetting the rules for face-offs, where face-offs are set, penalties, interpretations for what's a penalty... Everything geared to increase scoring, and scoring chances.

But this off-sides replay recall overturning goals... WAY after the infraction wins the prize for:
