Dreger: Burrows decision unlikely to come Tuesday

NHL Senior Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell conducted a discipline hearing to hear first hand Alex Burrows' account of the pre-game exchange, subsequent penalties, and Burrows' post-game allegations that referee Stephane Auger followed through on a verbal threat.

 It's unlikely any decision will be reached before Wednesday and it's also unlikely the league's investigation will go beyond the player and referee to avoid a "he said...he said," scenario which may complicate the process.
If Stephane Auger is somehow found guilty as charged, he will feel the wrath, to what extent remains unclear. However, Auger will continue to work as scheduled while the National Hockey League completes its investigation.

In the meantime, the reason Alex Burrows is facing supplemental discipline is for a very public claim he was targeted and the Vancouver Canucks may have been victimized by tainted officiating.

Burrows publicly questioned the integrity of Auger, a respected NHL referee and by extension; his allegations questioned the integrity of the game.

It's possible that Burrows could be suspended for the outburst.

While his reputation of late is one of a gifted goal scorer, some inside the NHL's head offices, at times, have seen a dark side, and a player whose on-ice motives haven't always been pure.

However, the severity of his charge allegation is being taken very seriously, as is the way Alex Burrows chose to issue his complaint.
