I have no problem with the fine. In no way should a ref ever attempt to break up a fight by grabbing a player BY THE NECK. There could have been serious health issues of the ref fell the wrong way while holding onto Barnett's neck.

I say let the players fight it out anyhow. Let them get fined and suspended.

Congrats to the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins
