Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune,
The NHL wonk in charge of making miscreants stay after school did nothing more than fine Weber a mere $2,500, and only that because that was maximum allowed by the collective bargaining agreement.
No suspension. No missed games. No real punishment. Just a silly fine for a serious act.
Shanahan got pantsed. He clowned his own league. He turned the best time of the year into a joke.
The Stanley Cup playoffs just started, and the NHL’s credibility is over.
This decision seems so indefensible and incomprehensible that it smacks of a spineless NHL from a generation ago. The only thing missing is John Ziegler’s big red nose.
