Konopka (2,500$) and Sens (10,000$) fined

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=628148

Quote:
Ottawa Senators forward Zenon Konopka has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and his club fined $10,000 for Konopka's conduct prior to Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Final at New York on Saturday. April 14, the National Hockey League announced today.

Konopka was fined for his verbal abuse directed at a New York Rangers player conducting a live television interview nearby during pre-game warm-ups.

The Konopka fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund, while the club fine goes to the NHL Foundation.
Didn't even know it was under discussion.

If there's already talk about this in another thread, my apologies

Annoyed Boyle = Win
Donated money to charity = Win

Hmmm, seems like a win-win?

Why does the team get fined?

Looks like ticket prices will go up for round 2

NYR would be bankrupt if they were fined for Torts every single time

What's the reasoning behind the team getting fined?

I would assume that since Konopka is an employee of the Ottawa Senators they are ultimately responsible for what he does. By fining the organization as well as the player I would think the idea is that the organization will take steps to make sure their players behave themselves.

I guess smashing a players face onto the glass is equal to exchanging pleasantries with a player.

Saw thread title, thought it was for the headlock on Richards. Either way, well worth it.

I want to hear the interview, just because that'd be hilarious. Wonder if they couldn't air it because of the interference.

So do all the nashville players get fined $2.5k after their foul mouthed tirade after scoring the 3rd goal on Sunday. Yeah, thought so.
