He's already lost a lot of respect from people, lying about it won't win him back any of it.
He should've just said sorry and that's it. I think he looks like an idiot for making excuses.

But Wisniewski gets 2 games for an obscene gesture.

The NHL must have a different rule book in the post season.

Ference fined $2500 by NHL

It's official Ference fined $2500 by the NHL. If that was a Hab, I'm sure a suspension would be incoming.

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=560625

This says enough, "The incident was reviewed by NHL Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations Mike Murphy. "

No. He'd still get the fine. It was a no brainer, the NHL couldn't let it slide.

Didn't Wiz get an actual suspension for a rude gesture, to one player, not 20,000 fans? I don't care either way but it just seems hilarious and inconsistent.

It seems to me like when Max Pac stumbled into the post of the board to make Chara look bad, eventualy it made Chara ill wich in turn gave his disease to Ference when they were in the sona together and when he scored, seeing Habs fan cry in the stands, he became so sensible, feeling their pain, that the disease created some sort of artritic backlash into Ference's hand, crippling his fingers into a closed fist while living his middle finger straight up.

Benoit Brunet told me this.

Makes no sense.

A player showing a obscene gesture to another player gets 2 games but a player showing a obscene gesture to fans (and children), who are responsible for their salary and quality of life, gets a fine.

Nobody's getting suspended in the playoffs for an obscene gesture.

It does make Campbell look like a fool for suspending Wiz earlier in the season, though. But at this point it's like putting a 'kick me' sign on the village idiot.

I found it ridicilous that the league even gave Wiz two games.

I'm being consistent with my opinion, the league is being inconsistent with it's suspensions.. but what else is new?

Honestly, he doesn't deserve a suspension.. and neither did Wiz. Give Wiz a fine.. and there you go.

That some charity gets $2500 from the lining of this players couch is of no concern to me, why wasn't a misconduct handed out on the play?

I would not expect my child to be given sex education in terms of blow job gestures. If Habs fans aren't smart enough to realize there is a huge difference between the two, then Habs fans are lot less educated and pathetic imo.

They are no where near close to the same. How many parents would prefer to have their children witness blow job gestures over the middle finger? I don't think there are too many.

The NHL made the right move by suspending Wiz those 2 games. Other NHL players have done the middle finger this year and there was no suspension. So they are being consistent imo.

So give a misconduct to everyone who say's "**** you" to fans or to other players?

You don't see it on TV, doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

Fine was the right call.

I agree with your post, but I think Wiz should have gotten a big fine instead of suspension..

Campbell is very consistent if you understand the set of rules that he applies. The problem is the majority of fans simply chose to not look at the set of rules that he applies and chose to get mad because they didn't get what they want.

That's like me getting a $20 fine. Good job NHL having a max fine of 2.5k for players making millions.

I thought the fine would be a little bigger. They should have just let it slide for a measly $2500.

(i) Any identifiable player who uses obscene, profane or abusive language or gestures directed at any person.

Except that is impossible, the size of the fines are limited by the CBA and the only way to 'hit players in the pocket book' is by suspending them.

Not since this whole headshot debate started.

And no, suspending one guy for 2 games for mimicking a ******* to another player and giving a 2.5K fine to another for flipping off fans is not logical despite what you don't want to explain to your kids. It's arbitrary. If you want to say he's consistent in being arbitrary, then yes, he's the King.

Any how many are actually applied?

I think something like "I'm going to ****ing destroy you" is looked at as more serious instead of F You..

the refs have their standards as to what is considered obsene, profane or abusive language/gesture.

I honestly don't think it's a merit of suspension.
Maybe the fine should have been larger, but the rules say no..

I agree with you but people watch the game on tv. It was shown multiple times on rds and cbc.

the last time a player gave the finger, he gave a fine.

That is what I call consistent.

What do you call it?

Blow job gestures and the middle finger are very different. Do you not agree?
