Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Im sorry to say, but you're going to be disappointed. I would bet just about anything that the NHL doesnt discipline what so ever

Here' what I want to see happen. You know how in the past, the Wings have found really important things to focus on for winning the Cup? Twice, it was because of Vladdy. More than once, it was because there were veteran players who'd never had a chance to touch the Cup, much less hug it, kiss it and drink out of it.

Maybe they don't see Weber's actions as negatively as we do. But there is no reason under the sun why they can't use most of what happened in that game to fire up, focus and win. They already must KNOW they are better than the Preds. As far as I'm concerned they have enough reason now to pull together and roll right over their ignorant, arrogant hides.

First shift Weber out there he has to be Kronwalled, send the message early.

Tough to do to a d man. I'd like to see Bett drop the gloves with him off the opening draw like he did with O Brien a year ago

My mistake, makes this seem even more outlandish.

The current CBA doesn't allow for more than a $2500 fine against players. Not that I agree with it or anything. Should be a suspension if the fine isn't enough for the action.

This "fine" is so pitiful, I'm almost tempted to respond after trying to avoid posting anything here for a year...

...however, I'm afraid that I would use "poo-poo bad hurtful" words that the powers-that-be on this board would think are BAD NAUGHTY, so I won't.

Come on everyone, let's sing "Koombaya" and not use such LANGUAGE as "B.S.", etc. Mr. Weber is simply misunderstood and now has had a serious talking to...all will now be friendly and better!

The message has been sent and it is now going to be open season on the Wings. Preds know nothing will happen to them. I am concerned.

Pretty much what we saw when we faced the Ducks a few years back.

This is such an embarrassment. If anyone did something like that in ANY non sports setting they would see more than a $2500 fine waved in front of their face, it would be a lawsuit. $2500 doesn't fit the action and the next step was suspension. Man up NHL and be consistent with the regular season

That's a joke. I've always had a lot of respect for Weber, but I really hope that Abby or someone else elbows his f****** head.

In any case: playoffs = no suspentions (Shanny is already playing golf)

Too bad Babs didn't see the play, this really deserved a coach getting on top of the railing and yelling at Trotz. Trotz's post game comments were pitiful, Weber's chuckle when reporter asked him about the hit was ****** like ... maybe this will bring on the hate from the boys and light a fire under their arses.

NHL is a joke.

Bert it's time for you to drop the gloves with Weber and punch him in the face and see how he likes it

This sends a very bad message to our youth and shows the severe inconsistency in the disciplinary B.S. If Shea Weber can do it, than kids of all levels of hockey can do it and get away with it.

8x worse, actually, based on the dollar amount of the fine.

Based on his $7.5m salary, that's actually 1/3000th of his yearly salary. At my salary, that would be a fine of $12.33.

based on his $7.5m salary, he makes $1563 a minute.

so this fine is paid off in less than a 2 minute minor.

I would seriously pay the fine for first player to knock the living s*** out of Weber tomorrow night. Lost all respect for that piece of s***

Well, at least your employer doesnt withhold money in escrow. Man...I feel terrible for Shea Weber. Poor guy. It's just unimaginable to see a guy go through such a financial hardship.

I am starting a Shea Weber Fund. Efforts will be made towards financial restitution for the unjust hardships the NHL has imposed on Shea. Donations of all sizes will be welcomed. PM me for more details. Thanks

To be fair, the fine is the maximum allowable under the CBA.

Very odd there's no ban given the whole approach to head shots all season long.

"This play and the fine that addressed it will be significant factors in assessing any incidents involving Shea Weber throughout the remainder of the playoffs."

He had a fine back in October on a hit, for $2,500. So does the history board get wiped clean at the start of the playoffs? Weber just put a target on his back for the rest of the playoffs. Players are going to see this play, and try to aggravate him. If he retaliates dirty in any form he could be sitting 1-2 games. I really hope the wings don't do anything dirty to pay him back. It could be seen as premeditated, and could get babcock in trouble also.
