Alright, Torts was out of line, but this is absurd. $20,000??? Matt Cooke ended Savard's career and he got a slap on the wrist. The league is showing that unprofessional comments are multiple times worse than dangerous dirty hits. It gets worse when you compare a coach's salary to this kind of fine. This would be like giving a player in excess of an $80,000 fine proportionately speaking... $20,000 is a lot for a coach.
So what's Torts at now on the season? $70,000 in fines?
This league needs to get its priorities straight...
