Best No-Goal Ever?

I'm not one to make "Goal of the Year" videos. I don't have the technical know-how in terms of splicing video and linking clips together and all that stuff. I tend to leave that kind of work to the experts because it usually turns out pretty good when they do it. After watching the Vancouver Canucks-Edmonton Oilers game the other night, I was certain that there might be a "Goal of the Year" candidate after seeing Kyle Wellwood's amazing end-to-end rush. After all, Mr. Wellwood hasn't been known for this speed or agility, especially after being criticized for being too heavy in training camp a couple of years ago with Toronto.

Well, after shedding most of the baby fat for muscle, this is the Kyle Wellwood that Toronto thought they were getting. Check out this play by Wellwood at the end of the game.

Here's the question: does Kyle Wellwood's goal count for nothing but some highlight reel fodder? Or is it worthy of being on a "Goal of the Year" list even though the goal was waved off? What do you think readers: keep it or wave it off?

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!

I guess for a goal to count for goal of the year, it needs to be a goal. I'm going to have to go with a good curiosity, but not a goal.

Goal of the year = Goal scored...

sadly, just like in the game...just 1 second makes the difference

That was an incredible showing and one for the high light reels. Let's hope he can perform like this during regulation time.
