Wait… so a slew foot that doesn’t result in an injury is a $10K fine, but a blatant high stick to the face that results in 20 stitches is an $8K fine?...

Every player SHOULD be allowed to do what Setoguchi did. It would eliminate people taking runs at players and a great deal of the concussions all at once. But since they aren’t allowed, it’s good he faced supplemental discipline.
