"Atlanta's Ilya Kovalchuk has been fined but not suspended by the NHL for the match penalty he received in a preseason game against the Nashville Predators.

Kovalchuk was assessed a match penalty for a kicking motion on the Predators Jordan Tootoo.

The league apparently deemed Kovalchuk's infraction more of a defensive gesture than an actual kick, as Tootoo was tangled up with Kovalchuk at the time"

I cant wait till this season in minor hockey when a young player or maybe even an older kicks someone and blames it on being merely a defensive maneuver.

This is an outrage. The NHL is just to scared to do anything to star players right before opening night because fans might lose interest or even lash out.

If you have the guts to take the job, at least have the guts to do it right.
