Colin Campbell needs less influence

In your "100 People of Power" article, you laud Colin Campbell (No. 5) for his "thick skin." The skin must be extra-thick around his cranium in order to keep him from having a clue.

Chris Simon (should have been banned for life) and the Flyers Goon Squad (happy to inflict season-ending injuries in exchange for two-game suspensions) are the latest examples of Campbell's incompetence.

If Campbell's comments about the Simon suspension aren't enough to wake Gary Bettman up and get a responsible person in the position, I guess nothing will. 

When Simon kills or maims somebody after his 30 games are up, will that will be enough?
