No one can deny any of that; it's just that it's immaterial. Hedman or no, Garon still has the responsibility to TRY to stop a guy marching directly through his crease, from a terrible angle, on his move that Garon has seen 100 times. Nash's skates, stick and puck were all within easy reach. As the literal last line of defense, this goal unquestionably is still Garon's fault, one that gets stopped 99 times out of 100 by him or any other pro netminder, and I'm sure he would totally admit it was on him...while not blaming Hedman, even quietly to himself. We and the coaches get to do that part, loudly and with vigor
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” --J. Goebbels
