If he is suspended for 5 games for a late and dirty hit, fine the organization $300,000. That will get the attention of the correct people.
Or give them a penalty against the Cap. For every game a player is suspended, you lose $75,000 in cap space for the season. It may not seem like a lot but for teams near the cap that's terrible. They then have to pull a Devils and carry less than a full roster.
Team's will think twice about dressing pure thugs who do nothing other than fight and play dirty.
These fines seem ridiculous. But if that's what you want, why only target the fighters? Why not apply the same fines for flagrant high sticks and boarding plays.
It was a fight, Sesito was a jerk for pulling hair, but it ends at that. That game on Sunday was awesome and cant wait to see us play them again!
