  1. Dubi did not try to slow down or move to the side but went right for a hit into the boards.. fine is fine..but
    I think a 3 game suspension should be in order.. supposed to be cracking down on boarding hits.. that
    certaninly was one.

  2. 10k fine is a joke to a guy making over $4 million a year. Should be giving these guys game suspensions on top of it. 10k to the emergency fund should be an automatic, punishment should be on top of that for anyone making over 1.5 mil a year.
