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!

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 - Weber fined $2500

What a F*cking joke! Let's all chip in for $2500 to pay the fine so that one of our guys can ram Weber's ass, I mean head into the glass.

I would gladly chip in

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.

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.

That's where a suspension should be served then. There's no doubt that this incident is FAR worse than what Tortorella did to the Penguins/Crosby/Malkin. So if a $2,500 fine doesn't serve as the proper discipline, then a suspension should pick up where the fine leaves off.

If they suspend Bitz, it's a conspiracy. Low impact player doing wrong vs high impact player doing wrong. Hey kids, do you like violence?

I bet Bitz gets a game.

I honestly think the NHL gets a kick out of being inconsistent because it throws fans into an outrage and makes them talk endlessly about their (NHL's) product. Any publicity is good publicity

"This was a reckless and reactionary play on which Weber threw a glancing punch and then shoved Zetterberg's head into the glass," said NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety and Hockey Operations Brendan Shanahan. "As is customary whenever Supplemental Discipline is being considered, we contacted Detroit following the game and were informed that Zetterberg did not suffer an apparent injury and should be in the lineup for Game 2.

"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."

Love this. Epic failure (does failure imply that justice was actually giving a fair shake? because this seems like a pretty blatent pass for one of the NHL's small market stars).

That's where a suspension should be served then. There's no doubt that this incident is FAR worse than what Tortorella did to the Penguins/Crosby/Malkin. So if a $2,500 fine doesn't serve as the proper discipline, then a suspension should pick up where the fine leaves off.


Agreed.
