Colin Campbell wasn't surprised at all to see steady traffic to and from the penalty boxes in the opening games of the NHL pre-season. The league's director of hockey operations says it will take time for players to adapt to a crackdown on hooking, holding and other fouls that the NHL hopes will bring more offence and excitement to the sport. "It's like we expected," Campbell said Monday. "You have a culture that's been ingrained for years. "We don't know when it started, but the acceptance of so much hooking and holding will take a while to get out of the psyche. Even if they're told beforehand, people still tend to do it."
