Just wanted to give a slightly different view of Colin Campbell. If Wiz were not an Islander, he would have only gotten one game. There are teams AND individuals who get treated differently than the rest. I agree that a role reversal here would have meant a longer suspension for Avery, which is not fair either.
You have to wonder what punishment there would be if Crosby or Ovechkin had done this. Campbell is a jack@$$, pure and simple. His job should be done by a committee to make things more fair.
Actually, it's quite the opposite. Campbell and "Wiz" ,as you call him, have a personal relationship. Campbell's son played with him in juniors and Campbell knows his parents very well. He even spoke to him privately before coming down with the suspension. He's also considered a repeat offender based on past incident(s) according to Campbell. This is all from Campbell on HNIC radio and RSN radio interviews.
