This has to rank high up there in missed hockey calls with the Brett Hull (non)goal.
Thought I would share this funny picture I saw on Twitter earlier.

I dont see how anybody argues that this wasnt offside. The body language of both duchene and the goalie were really awkward lolLooking for:

Obviously ole Barry should have thrown his challenge flag on that one...:P All joking aside if they had 2 per game, that call could have been reviewed and over turned in 20 seconds, probably less time time than the refs got yelled at by the coach.

Bad call- yes. Worst call of all time - not even close.
For some of us "older" folks, will remember the early 80's Finals between the Flyers and Islanders. Go to Google or Youtube and look it up. There was an offside "not" called when the Flyers cleared the puck (the puck was at least 2-ft out) but Andy Van Hellemond and his corrupt crew never called it. The Isles turned the non-call into a goal and the entire series turned from there.

That's really borderline. I imagine it falls under the "at the discretion of the official" suffix on every rule. One of those where it wasn't offside because the official decided it wasn't offside. In my opinion, if it has been blown down, Avalanche fans would be mad. It wasn't Nashville is mad. Could go either way so there's really no right or wrong call, only the call that was made.

Just a brutal call.
I don't think that even the most incompetent/blind/paid-off/corrupt WWE official would even get that wrong.

The replay showed nothing close to Borderline. It was 2-2.5 feet off-side.
Now, what irks me is Referees. The head Referee is responsible for his crew. It's the head Referee's job, not to defer, but to make the call when or if his Linesman is out to lunch.
There are 2 count 'Em, 2 Referees on the ice. You DO NOT defer, you see your Linesman mess, up, you blow your bloody whistle.
