BREAKING: NHL Player Safety Hands Out A Max Fine And It Wasn't Even Deserved

The NHL Player Safety Committee's recent decision regarding Max Domi's slash on Mark Stone during Game 3 of the Western Conference Final has sparked a lot of commotion among fans and experts, leaving them at a loss of words.

Domi, a skilled forward representing the Dallas Stars, has been subjected to a $5,000 fine, which stands as the maximum allowable penalty according to the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Critics argue that this disciplinary action falls short in adequately addressing the gravity of Domi's offense. They bring attention to a video




where the slash in question seems relatively mild, fueling the ongoing discussion about the incident.

This controversial ruling has triggered concerns about the NHL's overall approach to player safety enforcement and the consistency it maintains in its disciplinary procedures. Notably, in a previous incident during the Vegas series, Leon Draisaitl received a two-handed slash, resulting in only a one-game suspension.
