Mark Stuart fined $2500 for hit on Johansson

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=622745

No suspension. Odd that they fined him for interference. If there was any penalty that could have been enforced there, I would've said boarding. Not sure what league that would have been considered a late hit.

Just a fine for Stuart.

Somewhat expected. Honestly, as far as where he made contact at, it looked similar to the hit Freddy Meyer put on Milan Lucic last year, and he was fined $2,500 for that hit.

Yeah that's a pretty good comparison. Meyer left his feet on that hit, mind you. Stu went upwards at Johansson, but he never left his feet.

It was a borderline hit for sure and did deserve the fine, but I don't get some of the other complaints about it. I mean really, a late hit?

I mentioned when it happened last night that I wasn't a fan of the hit.

I didn't think it was dirty or overly vicious, but if the league is serious about reducing serious injuries they have to outlaw hits like that where a player is already engaged with someone and then another player comes in and hits him.

Most players will agree when you are battling with one guy and focused on the puck you are extremely vulnerable. I have seen several devastating injuries where a guy comes around the net fighting with one guy and gets clobbered by another.

I think the punishment was appropriate because as it stands now, that really isn't an illegal hit.

^Agree 100%

It wasn't illegal by the letter of the law, but I'd liken it to the NFL and their rules about hitting a defenseless player. You have to let up a bit in that situation, even if it goes against your every instinct.

That's about what I thought it deserved.

It was a borderline type hit. If you start suspending people for those than the border gets moved, then suspension, then moved, then..... No hits.

I'm not going to complain about a Jets player being fined, regardless of whether a given incident was worthy of punishment or not. I imagine Shanahan has a big wheel like on The Price is Right that determines suspensions. Any player who gets away with minimal punishment is lucky if they had Shanahan review something. I'm picturing a crazy backwards game-show now.

Has there been any other amount of fine other than $2,500 this year? Every time I see someone get fined it's $2,500.

He's lucky he didn't get suspended, but he probably will be if it happens again.

It's the max according to NHL.com. I haven't noticed that many fines this season but I guess they're just giving out the max each time.

It used to be illegal by the letter of the law, because the ref was able to judge and call an "unsportsmanlike" play. However, in these instant access to info and non-stop analysis (and somewhat self-important) times the ref can't make a grey area call like that without being hung out to dry by the black-and-white rules police.

Anyhoo. No complaints here!

It is a late hit in Super Slo-Mo... he had like five seconds to stop

Hit looked like a low-velocity Colby Armstrong special. High hit, but it came less than a second after Johansson played the puck. Certainly not the best hit I've seen Stuart throw and I'm not a fan of it, but as a Jets booster, it's hard to argue with just a fine.
