    Gotta take issue here. Especially now that a failed challenge ----> 2-minute minor. Not gonna try to find the data, but guessing it happens only rarely these days - maybe 2x every 100 games.

    It happened in three games I watched on Tuesday.

    One goal called back, two were good goals.

    I was also surprised Sam had seen this a million times. I thought maybe a slight - just a slight - exaggeration o_O

    How is Wilson's hair still perfect under that sweat and helmet?

    It was a dumb challenge. If it’s borderline GI, fine, make the challenge. With offsides, you need to be sure. This was a dumb one, whoever did it.

    Well, he’s probably annoyed people keep stealing his goals. Started drinking early

    Would have been nice if Bura managed to get his stick on the puck there - but we all know he already scored his goal for February

    Agreed it was dumb but it wasn't some panic challenge as was implied.

    Caps are the reigning Cup champs they won't be panicking in a game in February against the Colorado Avs.

    Well would you look at that? Move your legs a lot, get some penalties.

    Caps showing a whole lot more GAS since their vacations ended.

    (GAS = Give a $#!T)

    I decided to search and found that someone has racked up the #s. For the most recent full season, 1271 games were played and there were 71 offsides challenges, or 5.6 times every 100 games if my math is correct. Much more in the article that I'm not going to read now.
