Whether there is a process to correct calls or not, it's still controversial because they weren't correcting a call, they were correcting a non-call. They decided that a whistle should have been blown, and because of that, the goal is disallowed. What stops the play on a delayed penalty call is the ref's whistle, not another player gaining control of the puck. This is not the refs deciding to change a call, it's them deciding to make a call after the fact. 


Goals don't happen very often on delayed penalties. Then after that, there is hardly a goal after unclear possession of a puck on a delayed penalty. Thus, this is rarely seen. I don't think the refs handled it well simply because they didn't rule that the player touched the puck, they ruled that "the whistle should have blown." What a weird thing to rule.

Palmieri would probably go for biggest surprise for me, but I'll say Adam Henrique - no one is complaining about him at center and his shot rate is way up so far this year.  He's on pace for 36 goals which won't happen but 25 is somewhat realistic with this kind of ice time.


Biggest disappointment is tougher - it's impossible to say Josefson because he's played very well, he just hasn't gotten that goal - I'll say Tlusty because I thought he would be a solid add and he really hasn't done much so far.


The reason I chose Palmieri over Henrique is that Henrique's stats don't look that much different from 2013-14. Yes, he is taking way more shots though, which could be a sign that he could hit 30 goals on the high end. Palmieri kind of just came in and played up to the role he was given. But, I don't think anyone here pictured anything close to this.
