additionally, the nhl and its players pride themselves on holding themselves to high standards as people. They have better reputations than the nba or nfl where they have people getting involved with guns and jail and drugs other extra circculars . Some of the actions in other major sports would never be tolerated whereas some things like this that dont seem serious are to the league because of the image they portray - they consider themselves above that stuff.
