Steve Downie fined $1,000 for hit on Sidney Crosby


From Tampabay.com

The league has fined Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Steve Downie $1,000 for taking down Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby during Sunday's game. Downie said he spoke to league disciplinarian Colin Campbell on Tuesday morning. He said there will not be a suspension.

 "He called it a dangerous play," Downie said.

Downie will not be punished any further for the incident.  Downie makes, after bonuses, about $822,000 this season and Sunday's gamecheck for him was about $10,020, so they've essentially fined him 1/10 of a gamecheck for this dangerous play.
