I wonder who will have the balls to criticize Shanahan over a suspension or fine or non-suspension :P

Awesome, next season is shaping up to be a good one for the NHL and the Wings so far, I think.

The good news keeps coming! Finally we might be able to get some consistency and common sense into the disciplinary process

NHL Disciplinary Committe: "Clear blind side hit"

Shanny:"Should have kept his head up, no suspension"

NHLDC:"Huge boarding call, mild concussion"

Shanny:"Shouldn't have turned your back on Raffi Torres"

NHLDC:"Joe Thornton, two diving calls in one game"

Shanny: "Death"

It'll be nice to have (what I can only hope) will be some consistency from the disciplinary committee.

It will be even nicer to lack Colin Campbell.

And if Shanny sucks as badly as Campbell, I'll be the first to say it.

Holy s***! How did I not hear about this! This is awesome that Campbell is gone!

Though honestly I'm a little surprised Shanny would take a role as disciplinarian. He seemed to be doing a great job with ideas to improve the game and its marketing. Now he has to spend his time trying to keep douchebags like Cooke in line.

I think this is a huge step in the right direction.

Shanny has always been straight forward and honest, whereas Campbell was mysterious, inconsistent, unprofessional, and untrustworthy. Should have stepped down after the whole email fiasco.


Just hope Shanny brings back some consistency and clarification to the disciplinary process which would help to restore a level of trust with the fans.

HOORAY!

Seriously... HOORAY!

Edited:

Sources tell TSN Brendan Shanahan will likely take over, but there could be somewhat of an overhaul of how supplemental discipline is handled.


So... HOORAY!

I cant believe it! Such great news for the game of hockey. This gives me hope that they will create a new, fantastic re-alignmen. One where ALL teams play each other the same number of games...fingers crossed!

I love it when a sport 'seemingly' listens to its fans.
This really does have me feeling optimistic about the future of the NHL.

Shanahan strikes me as honest and possessing common sense, even with the whole Janney thing. At least we can feel safe that Lidstrom will never be suspended again :)

Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

Shanahan is a good and great man!


Q: Of all the individual trophies you have not won, which one would you most like to win?
Datsyuk: I have so many of them that I haven't won. I think I would most like to win a trophy to the best goaltending duo.

WOW! First McCrimmon is gone, now Colin Campbell is gone? HAHA YES! Some of the things we didn't think would EVER change now have! Next season will be better just because of these two guys being gone. Shanny will do a great job, although I wonder if he will (at first) be harder on the Wings to prove he isn't biased.

Campbell could have just taken a "stress leave"; not having that much to do can affect some people.
Next up for the League: overhaul the officials and the so-called "system".

The Wings don't really do much suspension-worthy, I doubt Shanny will have to be hard on them.
