Don't think a former player should be in charge of punitive measures across an entire league.
I don't disagree with your point regarding Shanny and his office. That office is a difficult one to deal with. Remember too that prior to him, Campbell was accused of sheltering and favoring the Bruins and some of his personal friends. Anybody who has worked in the game for many years in any capacity will have friendships and loyalties. I'm not sure what the solution is, but I agree it is a problem.

I guess my original point was more related to the complaints that calls on the ice are intentionally biased. I absolutely don't buy that. Shanny's office, yeah, that could be a problem for a lot of teams.
