Nearly four months since suffering a concussion which has kept him away from hockey, an emotional, red-eyed Willie Mitchell returned to target the NHL and indict chief disciplinarian Colin Campbell for his inconsistency in dealing with head shots.
Mitchell said he was disappointed by Campbell’s decision making. He said a neutral party is needed in Campbell’s role because his “relationships” with teams and players can bias rulings.
“I know Colin Campbell has a lot of relationships with general managers and owners and stuff like that,” Mitchell said. “It’s very tough to hand down decisions on matters like this when you’re friends with people.
“It’s like saying I have to discipline my teammates. It’s too emotional. You can’t always make the right decision.”
