He said earlier that they took into account that although Toots has been suspended once and fined once in his career, he hasn't received any supplemental discipline in the past 4 seasons...so does he mean that previous history was a key point because he would've gotten more games if he had been considered a repeat offender? Or that he was suspended partly because of his history/reputation? I don't get it.
This is dumb. I guess Shanny is saying that Toots' actions are suspendable because Miller was in his crease, which wasn't the case with the Lucic incident? Makes no sense.
The main purpose of "repeat" offender is for determining how much money a player will lose if they get suspended:
For the purpose of calculating salary lost due to suspension, the following
formula will apply:
for first offenders (first incident requiring supplementary discipline
in the form of a game suspension), Player to forfeit one (1) day's
Paragraph 1 NHL Salary and Bonuses, but not including
Performance Bonuses, for each Regular Season Game lost (1/total
number of days in the Regular Season measured from the date of
the League's first Regular Season Game to the last, irrespective of
the Player's team's schedule);
for repeat offenders (second or more incidents requiring game
suspension), Player to forfeit one (1) NHL Game's Paragraph 1
NHL Salary and Bonuses, but not including Performance Bonuses,
for each Regular Season Game lost (1/number of Regular Season
Games for each Regular Season Game suspended); and
Player Salary and Bonuses lost due to suspension will be
calculated based on a Player's Averaged Amount, as defined in
Article 50 of this Agreement.
Status as a "first" or "repeat" offender shall be re-determined every
eighteen (18) months, on a rolling basis, i.e., where a Player does not have another
suspension for eighteen (18) months, his next suspension will be treated as a "first"
For determining whether they will suspend a player or not, and for how long, they can use any and all history in a player's career. The further back a player's last punishment was, the less they will take it into account. But all history will count to some degree.
