Heh, that was when he told "unsuspecting" Boyle what was coming.

I guess it's on par with what Weber did to Zetterberg.

Take that Zenon! Now your next car won't have a heated steering wheel!

Verbal Abuse a player: Get fined $2,500.

Intentionally smash another player's head into the glass: Get fined $2,500.

Anyone see something wrong with this picture?

While I agree that it sends a stupid message, from what I understand, $2,500 is the maximum fine allowed under the CBA. So that's about as high as it's ever going to be (well at least until the summer I'd imagine).

It'll change in the next CBA.

Not as wrong as:

Intentionally smash another player's head into the glass: Get fined $2,500.


Use foul language in a post game presser: Get fined $25,000.

I don't understand why the league fine is capped at $2,500? NHL'ers make a lot less than other athletes and i guarantee if fines go up, dirty **** will go down.

ColonialsHockey10 04-16-2012 02:44 PM

God some of the people running this league don't deserve oxygen.

Florida Ranger 04-16-2012 02:47 PM

What'd Konopka say exactly?

Kershaw 04-16-2012 02:48 PM

NHL's a joke. I don't mind what Konopka said, we need character guys like him in the series. But I'm absolutely baffled that Weber gets away with attempted murder on a vulnerable player.

vbman09 04-16-2012 02:52 PM

The league is really trying to cut down on the harsh Language in games.

Violence is OK, tag team wrestling OK, Steel Chairs OK.

Hockey is different here!

:banghead:

this is a family game. there's no need for cuss words guys. for real >.>

RangerBoy 04-16-2012 03:01 PM

Did Cassie Campbell interview Boyle on CBC? I think Giannone interviewed Dubinsky at the bench before game 2? I saw Brian Hayward working between the benches for NBC. Was it with NBC?

NEW YORK (April 16, 2012) -- Ottawa Senators forward Zenon Konopka has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and his club fined $10,000 for Konopka's conduct prior to Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Final at New York on Saturday. April 14, the National Hockey League announced today.

Konopka was fined for his verbal abuse directed at a New York Rangers player conducting a live television interview nearby during pre-game warm-ups.

The Konopka fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund, while the club fine goes to the NHL Foundation.

Krapka needs to tone down the rhetoric. He made a comment about blood and stitches. Just play the game.

Kreider Typical 04-16-2012 03:04 PM

I don't remember hearing anything on NBC in the pregame warmups.

McIlrathsWrath 04-16-2012 03:17 PM

Stupid fine. NHL focused on wrong issue

haaha I had a 2003 Maxima with a heated steering wheel. It was SICK.

Another for Shanafail :shakehead

Swear Words Bad.
Promote HBO 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic.
Fine Torts $25k for curse words no one ever hears due to "bleeps"
Fine Konopka $2,500 for curse words no one but the refs and players hear...

Concussions Bad.
Let's Weber FaceSmash Zetterberg into the glass...
"He didn't get injured so no suspension"
Zetterberg has concussion symptoms show up in a few weeks...


Hopefully, the last part doesn't come true....

The NHLPA would have to agree to an increase in predetermined fines. What reason would they have to agree to an increase? If the goal is to curb dirty play, suspensions hit players hardest. A guy making a million dollars per year loses $25k on a two game suspension and has to miss games. That hurts more than a $10k fine.

NHL attempts to adjust optics. Fail.

I continue to be amazed at the NHL. Every time I think they hit a new low they manage to surprise me. They are Rapidly becoming comedy gold. It's like they are seeking out new levels of stupidity and incompetence.

Not sure what sort of "message" this is supposed to send to either side..It just tells Ottawa they can get away with whatever they want and the most that will happen is they'll lose 30 minutes-worth of pay. And it doesn't appease the Rangers since a silly fine doesn't even anything up.
