NHLPA finally replaces retired competition committee members

Good news from the NHLPA: the PA’s filled Mathieu Schneider’s spot on the competition committee and swapped out the AHL-playing Mike Commodore for a current NHL player ahead of Monday’s meetings to agree to or amend the GM’s proposal to tweak Rule 48 to cover more than blind-side hits:

The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) announced today that two new members will be representing the Players as members of the Competition Committee.

Following their recent selection by the NHLPA’s Executive Board, Mike Cammalleri (Montreal Canadiens) and Chris Campoli (Chicago Blackhawks) will join current members David Backes (St. Louis Blues), Chris Clark (Columbus Blue Jackets) and Ryan Miller (Buffalo Sabres) on the Competition Committee. Cammalleri and Campoli replace Mike Commodore and Mathieu Schneider as voting members of the Committee. Schneider will remain on the Committee as the NHLPA’s non-voting member.

The full NHL/NHLPA Competition Committee will meet on Monday, June 13th at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Boylston room on the first floor. Please note that media availability will be held at the conclusion of the meetings. The listed time is an approximate end time.

Commodore famous for photo of him I saw on yahoo puck daddy blog where he was laying on a bed in his underwear with a whole bunch of loose paper money bills on him, lol. Good idea to get that nut off the committee.
Why isn’t Matt Cooke and Neil on this thing?  LOL
