"After careful consideration, we have decided to direct our time and energy going forward to projects that we believe will have a broader and more significant impact across our enterprise."

Oilers goal overturned after phantom goalie interference, NHL setting dangerous precedent - Puck Drunk Love
No. 55 of the Edmonton Oilers pretty clearly makes contact with Karri Ramo without a Flame pushing him into the crease.
