A $2500 fine to him is like a $20 fine to the rest of us. That will really teach him a lesson. If they felt that this was not suspension worthy then why not just say that and move on. Issuing this trivial fine is just embarrassing.

Apparently Tortorella's criticism of the Penguins is 4x worse than hockey players intending to injure their opponents

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.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Well he can never be accused of having a red wings bias now.



Not when Gary's pulling the strings. This league is a farce.

i would have rather had no fine. this is basically saying that something wrong happened and the league doesn't have the balls to make it right.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

A statement needs to be made next game! I don't care if it costs us a 5 it needs to be sent to Weber or any of their big guns. Total BS that he gets away with that. Worst part of it all is we don't even get the PP from the incident because that goon needs to pull sh*t after the game is over.

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.

It looks like he will be on thin ice for the rest of the playoffs though. Read the statement. He will be on his best behavior now.

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.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Can we just send Kindl in next game and have him murder Shea Weber on the ice? Seems like that would kill two birds with one stone.

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!

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

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?
