I don't see how this is proper punishment for that kind of hit to be completely honest. We're lucky to get off without Dubi sitting a couple games, on to the next one.
Fines are limited by the CBA as negotiated with the NHLPA. I don't think we are going to have progressive fining anytime in the near future. Unions tend to treat everyone in the union like that are part of the Borg collective. I don't know if 10k is the max, but it isn't very high. 10k to a league minimum player is a far bigger deal.

Having said that if I was making 50k and someone fined me $119 I wouldn't be very happy about it. I remember making 50k back in the day.
