Kukla's Korner Hockey

from William Houston of Truth & Rumours,
...Still, it’s hard to imagine the NBA’s David Stern or Roger Goodell of the NFL allowing an underling and mediocrity like Campbell dictate league policy that was fundamentally wrong, unfair to Savard and the Bruins, and also a public relations nightmare for the NHL. Bettman should have stepped in.
That said, the damage to the NHL’s image would have been much worse if the mainstream U.S. sports media had any real interest in what was happening in the NHL. They don’t. In Canada, most of the hockey media have been giving their pal “Colie” a free pass for years.
Enlightened hockey people view Campbell’s record as one in which the thugs were treated lightly and victims largely ignored.
