In an NHL playoff game last week, Ryan Getzlaf got made at a referee and called him a "." Getzlaf was fined $10,000 for language the NHL called "demeaning and disrespectful." But he was not suspended a game as was the case a year earlier when Andrew Shaw of the Chicago Blackhawks called a referee a "faggott."
