I know I’m a litle late to the party, but this whole Colin Campell e-mail issue is out of control.
For those of you who don’t know former Ranger coach and NHL vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell has been outed for sending e-mails to referees regarding the “little fake artist” Marc Savard and his son Greg.
Here’s Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy…
“The Colin Campbell Emails aren’t as much a revelation as much as a confirmation for his critics. They reveal criticism of officials who dared call disputed penalties on his son Gregory Campbell, now a forward with the Boston Bruins. They reveal the candid, petty assessments by an NHL executive on the league’s on-ice officials’ performances.
And, most scandalously, they reveal a long-standing grudge Campbell holds against Bruins center Marc Savard … and fans across the NHL are now wondering if that grudge may have come into play when Campbell let Matt Cooke off without a suspension for concussing Savard last season.“
Today, Larry Brooks at the New York Post calls for Campbell to be fired.
…wonder if Campbell sent an e-mail to the refs before Monday’s Rangers game against the Penguins. Oh wait, he did (sort of) as published at Blueshirt Banter.
