Friedman: (Some) GMs believe that teams should be fined for egregious on ice actions

Unofficial poll of 8 GMs concludes that league should begin to penalize/fine organizations for egregious on ice actions of players (in addition to their suspensions).

Thinks it may come up at "mid-season" GM meeting.

The proposal is in its early stages, but the idea goes something like this: After three suspensions, the coach, GM and organization would also get slapped with a cash penalty. The amount would escalate with each further violation.

There are some things that would have to be addressed. If a player is fined, but not banished from games, does that count? If a player with suspensions is traded, does he carry that to a new team? If a coach is fired, does his replacement start fresh, or inherit the previous total?
