Too late to salvage any credibility...

He should have fell on his sword the moment those e-mails became public. One must always be extra cautious when they are in a position of authority. Especially when said position is responsible for discipline and responsible conduct. His slip up was monumental.

And if Campbell thought his resignation will remove thoughts of B's favourtism from the NHL offices and help in not taking away any of the lustre from his sons accomplishments (should the B's win the cup)... well it's way too late for that too.

The NHL is run like a 1400's monarchy. And it was a very rough year for King Bettman and his court...

Campbell is the fall-guy. Bettman just got re-up'd but this year was damaging for the NHL's image (failure in the Sun-belt, Patronage, Corporate sponsership troubles).

PR will make or brake you.
