Shanahan The Head Disciplinarian?

from Jim Kelley of Sportsnet,

You’ve probably heard it by now, scattered reports (from unnamed sources, of course) that the long-time hockey star and executive office newbie is being prepped to replace Colin Campbell as executive vice-president for the NHL’s hockey operations, including taking over Campbell’s role of handing out discipline.

I don’t put a great deal of stock in it for two reasons: 1) Shanahan is woefully inexperienced in the inner workings of the oft-times Byzantine world of the NHL and 2) what person in his right mind wants to be exposed to scathing criticism from both inside and outside the league for rulings that on many occasions King Solomon himself couldn’t cleanly decide.

continued and more hockey topics too…
