Can fines actually be factored in as past history?
I guess they should also be broken down whether they were on-ice or off-ice fines.
But then again, if Weber only got fined for smashing Zetterberg's head into the glass,
maybe some fines should be equivalent to suspensions...
I have no idea why they referenced his fines (it's been almost 5 years since his last fine, BTW) since they're only allowed to reference the past 18 months when determining "repeat offender" status. And, for the record, no they can't be unless it's within the same season.
A recipient of a fine will not be treated as a "repeat" offender for purposes of
calculating the amount of compensation that will be forfeited upon suspension pursuant to
Section 18.15. However, such a disciplinary fine will carry consequences for the balance of that
season and any further Supplementary Discipline for On-Ice Conduct that is imposed in that
season will take into account the offense for which the Player has been fined.
18.15 Forfeiture of Compensation Upon Suspension. The amount of compensation that will be
forfeited by the Player upon suspension shall be calculated on the following basis:
(a) for "first" offenders (first incident requiring Supplementary Discipline for On-Ice
Conduct in the form of a game suspension determined pursuant to Section 18.15(d)), Player to
forfeit one (1) day's Paragraph 1 NHL Salary and Bonuses, but not including Performance
Bonuses, for each Regular Season Game lost (1/total number of days in the season measured
from the date of the League's first Regular Season Game to the last, irrespective of the Player's
(b) for "repeat" offenders (second or more incidents requiring game suspension
determined pursuant to Section 18.15(d)), Player to forfeit one (1) NHL Game's Paragraph 1
NHL Salary and Bonuses, but not including Performance Bonuses, for each Regular Season
Game lost (1/number of Regular Season Games for each Regular Season Game suspended);
(c) Player Salary and Bonuses forfeited due to a suspension will be calculated based
on a Player's Averaged Amount, as defined in Article 50 of this Agreement; and (d) status as a "first" or "repeat" offender shall be re-determined every eighteen (18)
months on a rolling basis. For example, where a Player is suspended for the first time, he
becomes a repeat offender if he is suspended again within eighteen (18) months of the first
incident. If he does not have another suspension within eighteen (18) months of the first
incident, his next suspension will be treated as a "first" offense.
Was that taken into account? I hope not ... Not that a grievance would do much but (possibly) get an insignificant amount of money (for an NHL player) forfeited back.
An appeal would be reviewed by the commissioner and could take up to a week. Burrows would remain suspended during the appeal process.
Like it or not, the bottom line is that star players (e.g. Weber) will be treated differently from those with "dirty" reputations (e.g. Burrows).
