Fantasy League: Why are PIM positives?

I just been told (post draft) that PIMs are worth positives points in the fantasy league's total.

Why I asked why roughing, slashing, hooking, tripping, high-sticking etc... Is supposed to be a positive, I got the answer "all the leagues do it"

Since I know sophistry when I see one, I kept arguing to know why putting your team at a disadvantage is supposed to be good, until I got told to shut up.

I am open to arguments. Please tell me why dumb penalties are suppose to count as a positive. If you wanna reward tough play, why not count hits and blocked shots instead?
