NEW YORK (April 18, 2015) – Calgary Flames Head Coach Bob Hartley has been fined $50,000 for his responsibility for the incident that took place with 1:17 remaining in regulation of the first-round playoff game in Vancouver on Friday, April 17, the National Hockey League announced today. The fine was issued in accordance with By-Law 17.3 (a) for conduct prejudicial to or against the welfare of the League.

Of course if it was Pittsburgh in 2009 (Malkin jumping Zeterberg in Game 2), it doesn’t apply. mad

Holy crap ... people are acting as if the 2nd coming of the hollicost just happened.

Did anyone see any teeth fly ??  Knuckles scraped ?? Blood anywhere ??  Who else besides Stajan attempted to throw a punch ??

Sure it broke up the monotony of up & down back & forth dump & chase hockey but c’mon .... if that was serious fighting then i’m going to be elected the first jewish pope.

So far this years playoffs are boring as shit ... which is kinda a good thing cuz I got this flu that’s going around for the last 10 days and so far i’ve lost 6 lbs. and done a boat load of bad hockey induced sleeping.

The game is getting worse each year and I’m now waiting for someone to start a conspiracy theory over the Edmonton Oilers winning the draft lottery.  They don’t deserve it nor will it help them win anything so why give it to them ??  Such a waste ........  wait about 12 hours ... it’ll happen.

Finally ... I think we’re all smart enough to know Hartley won’t pay the fine .... the hockey club will.  The fine is just Bettman’s token gesture to remind people he’s all for the continued ‘pussification’ of hockey.
