Report- Shanahan The New Head Of Discipline?

via Darren Dreger tweet,

Sources tell TSN Colin Campbell is giving up role as NHL disciplinarian. Brendan Shanahan will likely take over.

Update 3pm ET: From TSN

Campbell will remain a key component in Hockey Operations and as such will continue to oversee such events as future general managers meetings.

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

Shanahan’s role has continually evolved with the league. He is currently working as the NHL’s point person in dealing with equipment changes in conjunction with Mathieu Schneider and the NHLPA and is the lead man in organizing the league’s Research and Development camps.

Great news.  Perhaps the flow-chart and wheel-of-justice can be permanently retired.

Good guy. hope he can bring respect to the task at hand.

Does that mean his current job will go to someone else or in addition to.

Good luck Shanny, you’ll need it

Best. News. Eva!

I have a feeling the Flyers and Bruins don’t feel so protected anymore.

Same here. The way he left Detroit rubbed me the wrong way. Always will.

He’s gone over to the Dark Side.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate-

I agree, but I will always love Shanny. That said…I think the wheel won’t be going away. It may make a bit more sense…but it’s not going away. Too bad, as Shanny used to make everyone on the ice accountable, especially himself.

This is good. Shanahan was no wilting flower in his playing days, but neither was he a cement-head goon like Campbell who “tries to give (offending) players every benefit of the doubt.” Hopefully Shanahan can set some sort of standard so a guy like Steve Downie doesn’t end up with 25, 1 and 0 game suspensions on three different occasions for the exact same infraction.

Awesome news!  As a penguins fan, I was able to accept the punishment Cooke was handed but it was real hard after seeing what people were getting away with after his punishment.  It’s one thing to set the bar high; its another entirely to continually move the bar throughout the season.

Because that’s been a major problem around the league for the past 20 years.  Those goonish Red Wings always taking runs at people and throwing elbows.

DAMN THOSE DIRTY SWEDES!

Gimme a break.

Yeah.  It makes perfect sense that the one team Shanahan left because he didn’t like the current coach would be the one that would receive preferential treatment.
