The NHL has concluded its investigation into the incident regarding Morgan Rielly last night and determined that the Leafs defenseman did not utter a homophobic slur at referee Brad Meier and considers the matter closed.

Glad to hear that they took it seriously and that he didn’t actually do it.

A Toronto fan, who I take is a master at breaking down the videos based on what his followers claim, said he had broken down the video. I had the opportunity to listen to the clip on Twitter and there was one voice yelling "I was hooked" and another distinct voice that yelled "rag it", which is a term used in hockey when trying to kill time by controlling the puck when on the PK.....which we were.

The 2 statements were almost simultaneous as Rielly skated passed a ref and Gourde was chasing the puck into the corner.
Said Schiff: “I think there’s plenty of evidence of collusion or conspiracy in plain sight.”
