Guest 1970 Habs Posted April 22, 2008 Report Share Posted April 22, 2008 NHL hits Niedermayer: The National Hockey League has fined Anaheim defenceman Scott Niedermayer a reported $500,000 for missing training camp last fall. The unprecedented fine was levied despite the fact that the Ducks gave Niedermayer permission to miss camp - and a good portion of the regular season - while he was trying to figure out whether he wanted to continue playing. While the Niedermayer and the Ducks are both crying foul, it seems that the NHL is trying to crack down on the practice of players taking time off at the beginning of the season and coming back to help their teams during playoff drives. No word on whether similar fines are in the works for Teemu Selanne or Peter Forsberg.
