If you aren’t sure how exactly the NHL handles its suspensions for on-ice transgressions, you’re not alone. That’s because nobody knows what the fuck is going on in Colin Campbell’s mind. For entertainment’s sake, here’s a guess.
Thankfully, those confusing days are (hopefully) behind us. RedWing4lyfe Brendan Shanahan was named the league’s new disciplinarian today, but apparently doesn’t get the corner office just yet, as Campbell will retain the rest of his jobs (including being Gary Bettman’s teddy bear babysitter) in the NHL front office.
I believe “The Elbow Drop of Justice” is an appropriate term for Shanahan’s new position. We’ll go with that for the forseeable future.
