from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
“It’s evident that Shanny isn’t going to fool around with $200 fines or anything like that,” said Sharks coach Todd MacLellan.
Still, the GMs are the people that gave direction to Colin Campbell for years and Burke before that, and there are indications some are already feeling that Shanahan is taking his new disciplinary role beyond the expected boundaries.
“We voted for stiffer suspensions, and we meant it,” said one veteran executive. “But not doubling and tripling.
“If (Shanahan) gets too far in front, he won’t last long in the job.”
It is apparent that “veteran executive” does not have his finger on the pulse of the NHL fans these days. It is the behind the scene comments like this that has slowed down the progress of the NHL, when will they learn?
