Rumors that Shanny might make it a committee. Which would be a smart move.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

I would be thrilled if Shanny were picked to take Campbell's place but I really hope he doesn't have to deal directly with the disciplinary stuff. That's got to be a difficult job no matter how you look at it. And I don't want to see him get dumped on for making decisions that will piss off at least half the fans involved.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Schweet!! I agree with everybody - he's got the right personality for the job. He's open, seems fair, and has a good relationship with the players. I definitely like the committee idea - that probably should have been done a long time ago.

Good luck, Shanny...I gotta say, that's a hard job. Like being the school principal - nobody really wants to see you.

I'll wait and see before I say if I like Shanny taking over or not. I'm not a fan of tough guys handing out suspensions. I think they should have rules in place before instead of all this grey area. Here's hoping Shanny makes some positives changes.

I think Shanny will do a great job. :thumbup: He seems level-headed and honest.

It is kind of funny though that the NHL's head disciplinarian has over 2500 PIMS. :lol:

A committee would still be a better idea than just a single person in charge though. I don't think Shanahan would want all the decision-making responsibility.

Glorious day for hockey. Now the only other thing that could be better is if Bettman announces his retirement tomorrow.

That's an impressive move up the corporate ladder for Shanny. I can't wait for him to bring integrity to the NHL's disciplinary system. :thumbup:

Congrats Shanny!

It's amazing how one of the leagues bigger agitators and annual Gordie Howe Hattrick leaders moved up so quickly and now may be in charge is discipling players lol. Go Shanny!

Cue the Shanny deserves to have his number retired in Detroit in 5...4...3...

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.


Always straight forward and honest? LOL This is the guy that was screwing his team mate's wife.

Shanahan took a large role in getting the NHL to tighten up its rules on clutching and grabbing once the lockout was settled before last season. During the year off, Shanahan formed a panel of hockey experts who made several recommendations that the league adopted.

This would be brilliant.

What I'm really hoping for is transparency and accountability. And I also hope Shanny brings out the Wheel of Discipline so it can be ceremonially burned.

Are you a friend of Shanny's?

He's married to Janney's ex-wife, as for when it all happened has been a matter of rumors and speculation.


As for crap that actually matters, I'm glad they're talking about starting a committee for handing out punishments. It seems so obvious to have more than one man's opinion it's hard to understand why it hasn't been that way.
