Correct me if I'm wrong, but the amounts are generally not fixed sums, but rather the equivalent in salary lost for games suspended. If Brière loses $750K for 2 games off, it's a bit less in that week's grocery cart, but for a 4th-liner making league minimum, it would be 1/41st of $500K, or about $12,000.
