The problem has always been the same, they only punish based on what is in the rule book. The rule book should be only some sort of advisor for the discipline guy in the NHL and the guy in charge should mainly use his judgement to give a decision, basing it on the severity of what just happened. Remember Campbell did not punish Matt Cooke at all for the hit on David Boot. He gave him nothing, absolutly nothing because it wasn't in the rule book. They had to pass a new law to be able to punish it. Instead of using their common decency and act.
