We, the general public and fans of the NHL, hereby request that the NHL, all governing bodies and said entities consider our plea to fire current NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan. It is our belief that Mr. Shanahan has shown a wanton disregard in his duties as SVP of Player Safety. Mr Shanahan has established a dangerous track record throughout this, the 2011-12 NHL season as showing preferential treatment to players the league would deem 'star' players. While we applaud Mr. Shanahan is his consistency in upholding safety issues related to repeat offenders, we take issue with the fact that punishment to first time offenders rarely is consistent and in line with any other punishment. We've seen punishments range from simple $2,500 fines to players missing up to and including 3 games for initial infractions. As such, we the general public and fans of the greatest game on Earth request that Mr. Shanahan either be fired from his position, consider resigning due to conflict of interest, or reassess the punishments he doles out to become more consistent across the board, regardless of whether a player is a 'big ticket' player, or not. Sincerely, NHL Fans Everywhere
