I don't feel it is too severe. For blatantly throwing the game, Ljubljana was fined 10,000 euros, the goalie (Pintaric) received a 6 game suspension and the coach gets three games.

It was a bush-league move which only damages the reputation of the league. I think the punishment was warranted.

Consider what would happen if an NHL goaltender pulled that move in a shootout. How would the NHL executive react?

Advance video to the 4:40 mark
