Take a look at what Bettman said about Tortorella's comments:

It seems he was more concerned about things other than cursing.
Except in the article I link Bettman said it was for swearing....

...... are you telling me that was a lie?

That's the entire point of me posting this. There has been tons a f-bombs dropped in interviews since then with no fine. Why did the NHL lie back then and say it was for swearing and not for what it really was, calling out the Penguins organization and it's whiny stars?
