So saying mean things to your opponent and breaking one’s helmet while ramming their head into the glass warrants the same punishment.

That’s just fuching sad.

Whoa, wait a second. The Rangers player was conducting a TV interview, for goodness sake. Some people have no sense of perspective. smile

I missed this, what happened?  For $2500 I’m assuming he took off a skate and tried to slash someone’s face with it.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words are worth $2,500.

Sticks and stones and forcefully shoving my head into the glass may break my helmet and be worth a $2500 fine but words will also be a $2500 fine.

Fixed that up for ya.
