With a glove tap to Bitter Leaf Fan, here's a fascinating look inside the NHL's "war room" in Toronto.
This is, of course, the infamous room where every goal scored in an NHL game is reviewed by league officials. This is the place where goals, games, even seasons are decided based on the judgement of the league's best and brightest.
Here's a shot of what it looks like:
Now, that's pretty cool. But does anybody see anything odd? What's the deal with that big notice posted over in one corner? It looks important, but I couldn't make out what it said.
So I zoomed in a little bit to see if I could make it out:
OK, call me crazy, but doesn't it look like that notice says "IMPORTANT" on it in big letters at the top? What could possibly be so important that the league would want their off-ice officials to be viewing it at all times?
I had to find out. So a little more zooming, some sharpening filters, and I think I got it...
I knew it!
