At most he gets a fine. No way that's deserving of a suspension. Lepisto got pushed into the boards, but didn't hit his head or crush his leg or get injured in any way. Boarding penalty definitely, but that's it.
It makes me weep at how chump change $2,500 is to NHL players, even for guys making league minimum. Then you consider someone like Lecavalier, who makes $10M per year, and it just makes me want to cry even more at the injustice.
lets not even get started with football players. 16 gms a season and they make millions. 1st round picks get undeserving guaranteed money, look at Jamarcus Russell..
I remember about 10 years ago with one of the high paid baseball players (can't remember which one) they calculated how much he got paid per HR, Hit, AB, and number of time he scratched his crotch. All were ridiculous sums of money.
I saw the hit and he definitely deserved the fine, although it wasn't a big one. I'm A LITTLE surprised that with the way Shanahan's running the show that he didn't get a 1 or 2 games suspension. Like I said I'm only surprised because of Shanahan not because I think it was a filthy hit even though it wasn't clean.
But yeah you guys are right even for Desjardins $2500 is nothing man, lol.
