Weber Fined $2500 For Hit, Not Suspended

75 posts in this topic

I am a fan of Weber, but they should have tossed him for at least 1 game. This is not wrestling where you bounce someones head off a turnbuckle. The fine is what it is, but no game suspension is showing the league for a joke.

That said, Bitz deserves at least 3

Zetterberg wears a visor. What are we even talking about here?

How 'bout, he was playing it up to see if Weber would be suspended? Cheers.

He should have been suspended for sure. I like Weber as a player but there's no excuse for that play. Maybe Holmstrom sold it a bit, but Weber shouldn't have been pulling WWE moves in the first place.

Ahh, the hypocracy that is the NHL. Shanahan has gone from sheriff to puppet. So much for cracking down on head shots. Imagine if it was Bitz or Rome who intentionally smashed an opponent's head into the glass. Would they have gotten off with a slap on the wrist? Not a chance. So frustrating.

You know what? I'm from Sicamous and I love Shea, and even I think this deserved a suspension. What a joke.

Anyone else seeing the Twitter war with Bob Mckenzie over this? Hilarious.

The right call. This was worse than most after the whistle goalmouth crap, but not by much. If you suspend Weber for this then ou have to suspend everyone who throws a punch at someones head in your typical scrum. It was deserving of a roughing pentaly. The fine is just to send the message that the league does not approve. People saying he deserves to be suspended for mulitple games are just out to lunch

Capgeek's twitter calculated something interesting.

$2,500 for someone making $7,500,000 per year, is relative to $16 for someone making $50,000 per year.

Fines are really peanuts to the league's stars.

Weber wasn't suspended because he's about to win(or at least be nominated for) the Norris and the league doesn't want its awards nominees/recipients tarnished with black marks during the season/playoffs.

Now, what is Shanahan to do if every game has a head slam? The league has neutered him to the point where anything more than a fine as tiny as Bettman will be hypocritical....I miss Sheriff Shanny

Shea Weber was fined on Oct 21/2011 for 'boarding' Jannik Hansen, how was be not suspended for this Zetterburg smash?

Oh wait, ya, Shannahans a tard. Prediction: Bitz (1st time offender) wil get suspended for his hit on Clifford cause Shannahans a tard.
