This way your still rewarded for matching penalties and fighting majors with no potential negatives. I think this is a positive because if you've got a matching penalty than more often than not you've either been able to draw the other team into doing something stupid therefore removing the negative effect your penalty would have caused OR you're sticking up for a team mate. And then players are still rewarded for fighting majors which cause no detriment to their team.
At the same time the player faces the risk of costing your fantasy team (just like he'd cost his real NHL team). This way penalties can both be good (save a goal) or bad (cost your team) just like they are in the NHL.
that's an interesting idea...better than just counting PIM for sure. The problem with PIMs is that its near impossible to get a perfect valuation of them. Like some guys just take bad penalties, like guys who always get called for interference or holding because they are out of position or guys who get frustrated and slash on the play, you don't wanna award that. But take a guy like St. Louis who takes 4-5 penalties a season, usually if he takes a penalty its a 'good' penalty (i.e. prevents a breakway or a goal, etc). Same with the tough guys, often a fight or a huge hit can energize a team,and its worth the penalty.
