Lupul was fined $10,000 for crosschecking Eaves.
If there is one area of off ice discipline where I think the NHL could use a clearly defined rule, it would be an automatic suspension for purposefully connecting your stick with another players neck/head. Make it a three game minimum and let Shanny increase it up based on injury and reputation.
I really scratch my head with these plays were there is obvious intent to injure. It's easy to argue over the intent involved in a hit from behind into the boards, or even a misplaced elbow that occurs at high speed in a split second, but when you crosscheck a guy in the neck, that's the obvious shit they need to go after.
Every time I look out my window, same three dogs looking back at me.
