New rule to avoid brawls in lopsided games during the final minutes

Versteeg must have been the instigator, because AFAIK the suspension and fine are for instigating a fight with under 5:00 to play, not just for being in a fight. Like Chezz said, the NHL wants to avoid brawls late in games when the winner and loser are already clearly decided.

It's a stupid rule made by a commissioner who has no business being directing a contact sport. Go back to the NBA Gary.

I don't see anything with that. Oh.. and btw, Versteeg is leading all rookies this season with 22 points in 25 games.
