    The league is stupid at its core. Parros is just a pathetic symptom of it. Campbell and all these other old boys club morons need to be purged.

    It'll still be a joke league. In the sense that it'll never in a million years be as popular as the other 3 and is more of a niche sport/league.

    I mean Parros has no idea what he's doing, so getting him out of there is the first step.

    I don't know how you can have players who did things over the line when they played and thought it was ok, be part of the group that hands out discipline

    Isn't there an actual award for "most Gentlemanly player"?

    I think it's called the Lady Byng.

    A very interesting award actually Lady Byng Memorial Trophy - Wikipedia

    Huh, so now why don't we take a look at the people who have won this award:

    Lady Byng Memorial Trophy - Wikipedia

    Huh, anyone on there looking for a job in the NHL?

    I'm seeing a whole lot of Martin St. Louis, Pavel Datsyuk, Wayne Gretzky, Paul Kariya.

    Nah, let's hire a f***ing goon over and over again.

    I’m not saying I’m an expert, but a good step would probably be to not have former goons as Player Safety personnel.

    Said this on the other thread already. But in every supplemental discipline case the minimum punishment should be 1.5x the players last suspension.

    Score8 suggested, "Step 3. Make brain damage a disqualifying condition to work in dops."

    Sadly, they seem to have made it a requirement!

    Wasn't Parros kind of a douche when he played? Why does he have that job? That's bettmans boo boo.

    Main issue is transparency and it’s not overtly complicated to fix that. Besides someone in charge who is not a former player, GM, or coach (for perceived fairness):
    • Suspension guidelines updated yearly and made available to public. Last update at nhl.com/playersafety was in 2017-18. Players and fans don’t know what is legal and what is not.
    • Video explanation of all actions and reference similar incidents. Not absolutely necessary but would be nice to see an explanation on non-decisions as well
    • Independent review of department done regularly by 3rd party. This is the hardest to achieve but for the NHL to have a legal defense it may be the most important

    I've said it a hundred times. A medical doctor with a deep understanding of brain trauma should be heading-up the DoPS.

    "What uniquely positions me for the job is that I played the game as physically as anybody and I never once was fined or suspended."

    I'm an Islander fan and I completely agree with the Rangers on this one. That was crap and people should be accountable.

    And they are also the ones appealing suspensions?
    DoPS needs to be independent of the people they are policing and the league itself.

    Parros should go, for starters. But the mentality runs much deeper than just him.

    It's not like he's fighting off Bettman and hordes of NHL staff saying the suspensions should be longer and more consistent.

    At the very least it should be handle by impartial and independent people. Not by employees of the NHL who have invested interests. There is an old boys club mentality that is far past it's time in the NHL. a lot of them need to retire and go away. They are still operating under an old school thought process.

    Should be a 3rd party not affiliated with either the NHL or NHLPA as in no former players. Fines and suspensions should have an option for a challenge from either of those sides. Once the verdict has been given that's it and it is on your personal record which will be held against you. Fines and suspensions need to be significantly increased however.

    Yeah, the NHL was a lot safer and less dirty with no instigator penalty.

    Oh wait, it wasn't.
