Keep It In The Room

The Toronto Maple Leafs caused a bit of a ruckus Wednesday when president Brendan Shanahan announced the team was extending Nazem Kadri’s punishment by at least two more games.

Some praised the decision to make an example of players that don’t abide by the rules, but others questioned the manner in which the team went about it.

Sportsnet’s Doug MacLean believes the Maple Leafs mishandled the situation. He also said off-ice incidents with players happen all the time, only most teams keep the discipline private.

“I had a situation with [Nikolai] Zherdev [in Columbus] where I had to hire a private investigator to follow him for a week and come back to me with a written report as to what was really going on with this guy,” the former Blue Jackets general manager told Dean Blundell & Co. Thursday on Sportsnet 590 The Fan. “Then I got [the report] and I dealt with Zherdev and, yeah, he sat out some games, but nobody had a clue that it was going on. Nobody.”
