In 2011, when Colin Campbell stepped down from his position as the NHL's chief player-disciplinarian, there was a sigh of relief and tons of joy from hockey fans everywhere.
Shortly after, an ex-player all hockey fans were familiar with, was named as his successor.
Brendan Shanahan, a three-time Stanley Cup champion, King Clancy Memorial Trophy winner and an eight-time NHL All-Star, was named the new chief after he had retired from a 21-year career in the NHL as a player.
Fans everywhere thought, who better to be charged with laying down the law in the NHL than the only player to score more than 600 goals and have more than 2,000 penalty minutes?
Well, Shanahan's honeymoon, as it were, was very short lived.
The NHL is out of control—Shanahan is almost completely powerless, and it is time for him to go.
