CJOB 680: Did the NHL get it right when they decided to re-instate Chicago Blackhawks executives Stan Bowman, Joel Quenneville and Al MacIsaac on July 10th?

July 5, 2024 — 

The NHL’s July 1st decision to re-instate the employment eligibility of three former Chicago Blackhawks executives is an equitable yet controversial leadership decision that may have indirect implications for the corporate world.

For the last two and a half years, these executives (the former general manager, coach and senior hockey administrator) have been ineligible to work for any NHL club following what was described as their “inadequate response upon being informed in 2010 of allegations that Blackhawks’ Player [“John Doe 1”] had been assaulted by the Club’s video coach”.

Ethics professor, Arthur Schafer spoke with CJOB about what message this sends, discusses cancel culture and if the NHL made the right decision with their decision.
