This almost seems designed for the sole purpose of letting the main HFBoards say "See? Infactions against the Habs do get penalized!"

More seriously, 2500$ is the maximum fine allowed by the CBA, so you see a lot of 2500$ fines. Did this warrant a fine? It does seem Neal's reaction to the action (spin and swing stick high) is excessive, and he's responsible for his stick at all times.
