I knew it was coming at some point once the Burrows/Auger thing was far enough down the road. They couldn't do it right away as it would have been admitting they had an officiating problem/game fixing issue.
Whatever you think about Burrows as a person or player in this issue he was not lying. If he was he should be collecting $10 mil a movie in Hollywood. Furthermore, had the NHL not believed him he would have received far more than the slap on the wrist for calling out an official that he did receive. (note as a person he has shown himself to be nothing other than a stand up guy as far as I know).
