08:28 AM ET 03.15 | Mario Lemieux wants teams to pay, sometimes dearly, for their players' head shot transgressions. It turns out that while critics were whaling away at Lemieux, the Penguins owner and Hall of Famer was busy crafting a proposal that might help silence his detractors. Lemieux earlier this month sent a letter to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman outlining a tiered set of automatic fines that he would like to see the league levy against teams whose players are suspended. The fines -- ranging from $50,000 to $1 million and doubling for repeat offenders -- would make teams "accountable for the actions of their players," Lemieux wrote. "We propose instituting a policy of automatically fining a team when one if its players is suspended -- with the amount of the fine based on the length of the suspension."
