They are.

Malkin is one of those "repeat offenders without a history."

Malkin was the one who started the fight against Henrik Zetterberg in the Finals, received an instigator for starting a fight in the last 5 minutes of a game, which would've meant a suspension for the following game. Somehow, the instigator " magically" went away, and He played in the next game. So there are special rules for Malkin & Crosby.


Malkin did not receive the suspension because Campbell and Bettman said "he had no prior history." The only problem was it was the second time they waived a suspension for him, because he had "no prior history." Wouldn't the second offense constitute "prior history"? Then he had one more scrape the next season, but was not suspended, or fined because he had "no prior history."
