[NHL] Report: Bertuzzi suspension could continue


 Share

Recommended Posts

still not saying what he did was right, but i know with my experiance in playing hockey things on the ice are different then what you see from the stands or on tv, when someone on the other team hurts one of your players, especially a team leader like naslund was, at least in my case, you kinda wanna do something about it

still he should've just fought him or skated away and not sucker punched him, but i know i've gone crazy on people before who've hurt my players:)

edit: im not trying to flame or anything either, and i dont normally fight in hockey anymore im just making a statement

i used to play hockey and know what its like too. But admit it, Naslun was skating through center with his head down. Thats asking for a hit, doesn't matter who u are, and personally i dont think it was that much from behind as it was from the side. In the game Moore got knocked out, i beleive he took a beating along the boards and actually got into a scrap with Brad May if i recall correctly

I don't really have a problem with more games for Bert. That cannot be tolerated. It was an on ice mugging.

I probably has less respect for Moore but what can you do...

I had heard this on SC one morning. Yes bayrider he had already fought May earlier in the game. I understand that they are trying to make a statement but I think that he should either be allowed to play game one of the season or be bared for life. None of this wishy washy crap. Take a stand and stick to it. He has not played in over a year and a half. Now if you aren't prepared to let him come back now, don't let him ever come back.

I am a huge Betuzzi fan but the league needs to take a stand on this issue now so that Vancouver can decide what to do in regards to the cap.

The deal was a one year suspension and then we'll talk again. It party was dependant on Moore's condition after a year.

That was a similar to what they did with McSorely except that he decided to retire at the end of his season suspension. He was already in his mid-to-late 30s if I recall.

Bertuzzi hasn't even sat out what more than 20 games? and please don't come telling me because of the lockout that even counts because everyone sat out and the lockout had 0 affect on how his team could have played since they didn't even play.

He should continue being suspended as long as it takes. Moore probably will never play again.

Give him the 20 games. Make him sit out WHEN PEOPLE ARE PLAYING so that he understands how stupid his actions were.

You don't think he was thinking about that the whole time he was missing the playoffs. He's had a year and a half to think about what he did. If it's merely for teaching him a lesson then I'm sure he's had more then enough time to think about it. All I ask for is that the league take a stand. Either let him play or ban him. 20 extra games will do nothing for him or Steve Moore. The only thing this could affect is how the Canucks spend their cap money. If he is going to be out for 1/4 of the season is it really worth keeping him or should they buy him out.

@ fred: The circumstances between this and McSorely are completely different. There was no work stoppage for the Brashear deal. There was no such thing as a cap and even if there was McSorely doesn't carry a Bertuzzi sized ticket.

I just ask that the league take a stand. Either make an example of him and ban him or just let the man play. It has been a year and a half and everytime it comes time to review his suspension or whatever the play gets shown all over again. This needs to become water under the bridge and stop the continuous portrayal of the league as being savage. It can do no good for the league at all.

If it came down to that choice then ban him.

I personally think adding another 20 games is more reasonable. It's a long season.

Yes he has. He missed 13 regular season games and 7 playoff games. That's 20 by itself. Then he didn't play in the 2 tournaments. So I'm guessing around 35 games so far.
