I would rather strike at the perpetrator and not the team.
Each penalty, even minors strike at your salary; a major & misconduct will toll twice as much money/minute: match penalty times 4.
What you have to do is to decide how high a percentage of the salary you are targeting with the base value (i.e. the minor penalty).
Then the game will be cleaner and as it is supposed to be played, while the real penalties are dealt on the private economy of the perpetrator and at a certain value on that penalty it will start to matter as it is based on a percentage of your income (i.e. even high paid guys will suffer).
So you take a financial hit for tripping or hooking someone?
