Not Again . . .
By: Jeff Little • December 24th, 2008
Well, we all saw it again . . . 3rd Period, tipped puck, Nash in the slot, puck in the air, puck in net. No goal.
How the hell can the NHL look itself in the mirror?? How can Colin Campbell deny, with a straight face, that the NHL, including the “War Room”, have some undefined beef with or grudge against the Jackets? Just 24 hours after Sidney Crosby gets his gift goal, they cannot overrule this?
Jim Day just said on TV that Toronto said their review was inconclusive, so the call on the ice stands. Bull. Toronto exists to make sure the call is right. If they are not going to do it, why the hell have them?

A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
