Oh ya, Boston's getting no favoritism whatsoever, especially not that stud...

And a high-stick is a penalty, geez.
Love him or hate him theres no denying he has been clutch in his first ever playoffs..There would not have been a suspsension on any of the above mentioned plays no matter who the player, who the team.

I agree, the timing of this raises several red flags. He is either doing this to hide something that is about to come out, or what is more likely is that Vancouver and possibly other owners were calling for this as they see this as a blatant conflict of interest. I know if I were Vancouver I would be calling the league offices to complain about this.

Even if he doesn't make calls when the Bruins are involved. If you knew your boss wanted something badly, you have to admit that you would consciously or sub-consciously change the way you do your job. Or at least think about that. Would you do something that would upset your boss?

It is a disgrace that it took him this long to resign.

It's why the job should be done via committee in the first place.

I wish I could have applied for the job. Easiest job in the world and there's no repercussions for doing whatever I feel like doing that day even if it's the complete opposite of what I did last time.

Oh he has been clutch. But your second part is actually extremely laughable. Tell that to Tortorella please. Or do you think that a coach is so much easier to suspend than a player?

Depends which side you look at the timing. ANyone here give the slightest possibility that He planned on stepping down from this role as soon as the season was over, but now that he cannot hand any disciplinary action down anyways (since boston is playing )he decided to make the quicker step-down. Only makes sense.....

I honestly did not see the torterlla incident nor know of his suspension so i cannot comment. If he did get suspended for squirting water i dont agree with it but i can show you several players who did it too but never got suspended. I actually had the opportunity to attend game 6 in Tampa so i can tell you this:

The B's players were getting pegged with little "paddle" handouts as soon as the final buzzer rang. A little squirt of the bottle in response deserves the fine, but absolutely no suspension. If it were that bad you'd think the fan woud be pressing charges (i am unaware however if any other fans called it in - I've got some tampa friends and will have to ask them and get back to ya)..

Wow this is an interesting development just before the finals.. The guy should have been fired after the email incident complaining to the refs about calls made against his son.. Good riddance Mr. Inconsistency.

He did not just squirt water, he threw the bottle at the guy. That's where it crosses the line.

Tortorella's incident is the exact same thing (squirt + throw water bottle). Comments from Campbell afterwards was that there can be absolutely no physical contact with the fans, no matter the reason, and so suspended Tortorella out of a playoff game 6 (which the Rangers lost, not that it matters).

Basically what he said applied 100% to the Horton situation. Except in this case he chose to ignore it, and gave ABSOLUTELY NO REASON. All they said about the matter is 'nothing will happen, no comment'. Usually they at least TRY to defend their reasoning, this time they didn't. Cause there was just no way to do it.

I'm pretty sure a monkey picking suspensions out of a hat would be more consistant, than Colin Campbell was. The guy should've been fired out of a cannon (into the sun) a long time ago.

They were also the most obvious calls that could be made.

He forgot the missed spear on Hamrlik that they scored on. On top of it a Bruin knocked puck down with a high stick which meant two missed calls on one play.

I see what they did, say he'll resign so the NHL can give the Bruins all the calls and not look too suspicious.

Thank God. Buttman should follow. Both of these guys are a disgrace to the game. The NHL is an entertaining game but these two worry more about themselves than doing what's best for the game.

I agree with you, in principle, except that Campbell had already sent a league wide memo stating that any contact, specifically including squirting water, was subject to suspension.

just imagine a Bruins player causing an injury too a Canucks player in the finals, like a stick swing to the head or a bad cross check. Then you have Colin Campbell there, maybe not having to judge the act but still there on the comitee. All that in the finals in front of large audience (NBC) all across the country.

I really don't know why this league are that slow to react in this kind of case. Really ugly in my point of view. But hey! it's the NHL...

The habs lost because we couldn't score in overtime. The Bruins absolutely dominated the Flyers and even if Horton was suspended fro game 7, I bet the Bruins would have found a way to win.

I'm sure there will be a Boston connection somehow in his place. Is Shanny's son a Bruins draft pick or anything?

Feels like good ol' NHL PR. League has a bad image, have someone take the fall and replace him with a well liked guy, respected by the fans, who will have the mobs put down their pitchforks for a while. Don't want to be cynical, but I don't see puting Shanahan there having a positive impact on the way discipline is enforced. The guys behind the scene are probably still pushing for status quo.

Perhaps you can elaborate on how these people "worry about themselves more".

That may have been the straw that broke the camel back. And probably why Murphy didn t get the job either. they have been teribly inconsistent.

Bettman did what nobody else could go, get a salary cap for the NHL. That's one of the biggest positives in the history of the NHL.
