That will just take out all competitiveness and physical play out of the game. Seems like a horrible idea to me.
Henrik's idea works because the players care about their team and their team-mates, and the team will have an incentive not to ice dirty players. In your system, a team could employ pure goons that get higher base salary to compensate for the penalties and suspensions — there would be nothing stopping them.
