Upshall hears from Colin Campbell

http://delcotimes.com/articles/2008/...4228829220.txt
Quote:
VOORHEES, N.J. — Scottie Upshall didn’t think he was going to be penalized for his check on Tampa Bay’s Evgeni Artyukhin, but the morning after being slapped with a major penalty and a game misconduct, Upshall found himself talking to NHL discipline boss Colin Campbell.

Upshall wasn’t suspended, or even fined, but he was given a stern talking to by Campbell who is on a mission to take dangerous hits and eradicate them from the league entirely.

“I’m glad I’m not suspended, but I definitely don’t think I should have been kicked out of the game,” Upshall said. “(Campbell) wanted me to try my best to let up on guys who are in a vulnerable position and that’s what I try to do. He said we’re not going to suspend you, but we’re trying to crack down on these hits.

“I was definitely disappointed (with the misconduct), but I’m not a guy who is going to shy away from finishing his checks. Obviously a line has to be drawn in the sand when it comes to hitting from behind, but I tried to hit him as legally as possible. I didn’t think that he was going to take a beating because of his size, but I guess he was pretty sore afterward.”

I'm sorry, but that's a joke!

The NHL doesn't know it's ass from page three sometimes.


...unreal.

If Colin Campbell actually said this, he needs to be fired.

If you're (the NHL) trying to crack down on dangerous hits and you believe Upshall's hit was dangerous, Upshall should have been suspended.

Exactly how I feel about it.

Either the NHL (Campbell) supports the work that it's ref's do and follow the 'questionable' hit up with further punishment, or let it go. You can't have both, it's pathetic.

Just wait until Avery get's more games for shooting his mouth off, than any player this year for hitting from behind....watch.

I watched that hit at least 20 times. 2 min penalty is all that was. Not even.

The fact they called him is a joke, sorry. They should support the ref and suspend him.

Are they cracking down, or not?

Good for us that there is no suspension.



But more proof that Colin Campbell doesn't have any kind of standard or consistency, which wouldn't surprise anyone.

I said it a few days ago. The only thing consistent about the NHL, is it's inconsistancy.

And yes, here's further proof.

It's probably mandatory this year to make a phone call after a game misconduct plus a headshot - controversial or otherwise.

Think it through first you silly geese.

This is the Weight hit on Sutter mentioned in the article:

The writer calls it "brutal" and Tripp Tracy calls it "a clean hit."

And how does 'making a phone call' stop what they insist they are serious in stopping...hitting from behind.

At the very least, fine the player.

The Weight hit was 100% clean. It was an unfortunate incident, but there's not a single god damn thing Weight did wrong there. I mean...my god, do people think there is somehow going to magically be a way to remove all unfortunate incidents from the game?? **** is going to happen sometimes, especially when a player does something like Sutter did there.
