FWIW that IS an increased amount, drastically increased. For larger portions of the salary, that's what suspensions are, in effect. You are right that these fines don't do that much to deter behavior, but that's kind of the point. Fines are meant to be a lesser penalty. They do establish a history however.
In any event, bummed about the injury to Heatley, enjoyed the scrappiness of the game but you don't want to see a freak injury happen. I like Heatley, and liked him as a Shark.
