Rule 159a sec. 23 clearly states "No serious infraction shall result in discipline if enacted against a player from a smaller market team by a popular member of a large market team unless decapitation results. If decapitation results and the infraction can not be blamed on the player of the smaller market team, then some pittance can be extracted from whatever cash the player from the large market team has in his wallet at the moment of the Board's ruling."


After reading Kerry Frazer's take on this, it's clear the decision is just so much more bull**** from the NHL.
