They keep flip-flopping...and it's frustrating.
Bettman: "Hey Shanny, you're hired! Your job is to decide when a player should be suspended"
Shanny: "Cool, thanks Gary!"

Shanny: "... and so, I believe Milan and believe 2 minutes was the right call."
GMs: "Hey Shanny, you should have suspended him"
Shanny: "Huh? I have the ability to do that?! Woah!"
