Not surprised, the amount of heat this guy took this year... Enough to cause fatal stress. Thankfully he's gone.

I rarely say this because usually the guy leaving is at least half-competent but... Good Riddance.

The fact that the discipline in this league has been a joke for years, coupled with the chara incident, the fact that he has a conflict of interest, it really is too bad it took this long.

Let's take a moment to remember the quote that best underlined and defined Campbell's inconsistency as disciplinarian:

Quote:
ďAnd so I think he has to be responsible in how he takes a [Brian] Campbell in, and what kind of position the other playerís in. And he had moved the puck already, Campbell. Look, if thereís no injury on the play, we probably, we donít do anything, but thatís part of the supplemental discipline process. If you cause a player to be injured, then you have to be responsible for the play that youíre involved in, if thereís any carelessness or recklessness in it.Ē
What a joke.

He's still going to be VP of Hockey Ops, though. No longer the final arbiter, but he's still got an e-mail account and influence.

Despite what conspiracy theorists may think, Boston got punished just like every other team in the league (Paille and Marchand suspensions).

Lucic's sucker punches and crosschecks to the face says hi.

Finally! Is he going to wait until after the Stanley Cup final?

Edit: Boston didn't get punished like every other team. Every other team was punished by Colin Campbell. Boston was punished by somebody else. Maybe now every team will be punished by the same person.

Edit 2: punished, punished punished.....

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.

Agreed. I'm sure Shannahan will bring more respect and dignity to the position then Campbell ever could have but it's still very arbitrary where one man gets to make this type of decision.

I won't say Campbell is so much incompetent as the NHL is incompetent in the first place for giving the job to one person versus several putting all the pressure on one guy who just so happens to have a son playing in the NHL.

Even if he didn't have his son playing for Boston, Montreal could be a team he hates or even Boston/Chara just a team/player he loves. Anyone can be bias no matter how much they claim they aren't or try not to be. It isn't his fault for that, it's human nature. For that I don't blame him, he made poor decisions I'll admit but he should never have been put in a position to make those decisions in the first place.

At the end of the day have a little empathy. You applied for a job and got it despite it being a conflict of interest it wasn't your responsibility to make sure it wasn't, you were just applying/getting a job in a field you love. It was the NHL's duty to not only make sure it wasn't a conflict of interest but that bias could be limited as much as possible. How could they have limited said bias? A group of people rather than just one, kind of like a jury. Obviously it can still happen that bad decisions will be made but it's far less likely than if you give the job to one guy.

So while I do think he made some bad decisions that stemmed from bias/favoritism I do also believe this was mostly the fault of the NHL and he can't be blamed for human nature. He's obviously going to be in favor of his son and his sons team.

Exactly. Can you image if something similar happened like maybe Kronwall seriously hurt somebody with a dirty hit and then say a team like Colorado lost the conference finals against Detroit because of it? Obviously it's just a hypothetical situation but it's not too hard to see down the road. This could very easily happen again if it's Shanahan.

Greg made the NHL on his own.

However, you can except Bruin's players to be suspended when they should be.

Unless that idiot Mike Murphy takes over.

Can't ignore the timing of this, pretty much confirms what we all thought: Boston's been getting a free pass.
