    Maybe they should get rid of double minors in favor of a two minute scorefest.

    It's unfortunate that your franchise ruined that for everybody back in the 70's.

    Canadiens GM Frank Selke learned of Campbell's desires, a few months later, in conversation with the Patrick brothers (Lynn and Muzz) who ran the Bruins and New York Rangers respectively.

    "In all the year's of Detroit's dominance, and their almighty power play, there was no suggestion of such a change," Selke said in response. "Now the Canadiens have finally built one, and you want to introduce a rule to weaken it? Go get a power play of your own!"

    When the time the NHL’s annual meeting was completed in June of 1956, the league’s governors outvoted Selke 5-1 in favor of Campbell’s request on rule 26(c), which became known as "The Canadiens Rule"."

    26(c) If while a Team is "short-handed" by one or more minor or bench minor penalties, the opposing Team scores a goal, the first of such penalties shall automatically terminate.

    Despite the rule in place, and a smaller gap between them and the rest of the league, the Canadiens still led the NHL on the power play the following season.
