Colin Campbell Stepping Down

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=367566

Colin Campbell is stepping down from head of discipline.

I know a lot of people hate the guy, but if you ask me, he has the hardest job in the NHL front office.

Sources tell TSN that Brendan Shanahan will likely take over, but there could be somewhat of an overhaul of how supplemental discipline is handled.

Is he stepping down for next season or today? I guess he could be stepping down now so that people can't complain if Boston wins the cup on some sketchy non-suspension due to his attachment to the team.

Definitely agree that he has a hard job, but its time for a change. I'm really happy about this news.

The only thing that would make this week any better for hockey fans would be Bettman moving the Coyotes to Quebec City and immediately afterwards announcing his resignation.

Sweet, now I can scrutinize Shanny on every decision he makes, and rip him to shreds to Wings fans, good luck in the NHL's toughest position Shanny.

edit: Its hard to hate Bettman when he stood up for us, like all other franchises when it comes to relocation. Buffalo, Edmonton, Nashville, Pittsburgh, etc.

I think most people dislike Bettman not because of his actions, but because of his personality in which he comes off as smarmy and arrogant.

Amen to that. I will always be thankful to Bettman for working so hard to keep the Senators in town. I like that he fights to the bitter end to avoid relocating a team.

Sure he comes off as arrogant, but he's actually really good at his job. Yes he presided over teams going to non-hockey markets and some of those markets failed or are failing, but, if there is an owner willing to take the risk, why not try to expand your market?

You can't argue against the fact that the league is making more money than it ever has, and is more popular than ever. Also, the NHL is way ahead of other major sports leagues in terms of online content and access.

The lockout was a *****, but he did his job perfectly. He got the union to cave and accept a salary cap, and he also got the union to accept a huge roll-back in salaries. He represents the owners, and they came out like bandits, and the players still aren't complaining because the average salary has skyrocketed to $2.4M...even though they technically lost out with the current CBA.

IMO, the captains of the other 28 teams should each vote on how many games the individual should get. You drop the lowest 10 votes and the highest 10 votes and take the average of the remaining 8.

I agree with all of this (doubly so on the can't hate Bettman as my #2 is the Oilers), however I think there are still a lot of people who hate him because they think he has all the power and is anti-Canadian. I agree that he does come across as smarmy and arrogant.

As for Campbell, he didn't get enough respect. I think it's hard to say he's inconsistent in his rulings when most people can accurately predict the length of a suspension before the league announced it. I don't think things will change too much under Shanny.

You're right in that he has a very difficult job in which at least half of the hockey fanbases view his decision as the wrong one.

To be honest I would be a bit saddened if Brendan Shanahan is the newly appointed. The job will most likely lead to a lack of respect for a great hockey player.

Doing a job like that since 1998 is WAY to long for anyone.

About time.

Its also time for the NHL to totally revamp supplementary justice because a dictator does not work.

I would hope to see a 3 person panel, one from the NHL, one from the NHLPA and one from the NHL referees that would meet out justice.

Also please start providing actual guidelines on the supplementary discipline, rather than this hold your finger in the air type of punishments...

Good to see him step down, though I agree that it's a thankless position. I'm surprised it wasn't sooner, considering the emails that came out about Savard.

I think many people would agree on the 3-person panel replacing him, and now (after the end of the playoffs) would be a good time to give it a whirl.

My opnion of Bettman changed once I actually started listening to him, and he became a good guy in my books during the Olympics and all the talk of going to Sochi.
The man is effective and reasonable: what more do you want?!
