Yeah, I agree with you....

I can see this hits you at home but on sidenote I think Avs days of cup finals/west finals are behind them, continue to make the playoffs though. I really think that Forsberg will be gone. Sakic probably only has a few years left. I think they are in much better shape than Detroit.

How old are you? What level of hockey do you play where there is no checking? Keep your head down, what? Your always taught to keep your head up. Stick won't injury you? Stick work will injury you. Which you would see more of it with no checking.

11. White, i used to play select with checking. Yes, you can. Yes you are, but if you are trying to deke, you can put your head down to see where the puck is. Stick work WON'T injure you, the only injury is if you get hit in the stomach while someone is opening a bench door and your stick hits the side, causing you do get hit in the gut, but it doesnt hurt.

Case Closed.

I'm putting this in my sig... comedic gold, and a testiment with whom we are debating here.

And also, it doesnt make any sense.

Spew forth word? Without complete thought and bad the grammar. It's all opinion, I know, but your wrong. Hockey players like me would know, it's like are secrete.

Gack! My morning movements make a more compelling arguement, in a far more refined manner.

I think he should be suspended for an entire calender year from the incident. of course, that is seperate from the legal ramifications which if i heard correctly, could send him to jail for awhile. if he goes to jail then he should be allowed back on the ice when he is out, if he is given probation for a certain amount of time then he cant play until he has cleared probation.

i think thats fair. but if acquitted, just make it one calender year.

I thought Bertuzzi's suspension should have been proportional somehow to the amount of time Moore missed with his injury. A 5-1 ratio seems fair to me given the brutal nature of the attack.

Whoops. What I meant to say was...

Me thought Bertuzzi's suspension should proportionally be to the time missed by injury of Moore. 5-1 ratio seem fare to I give the nature of brutalishness of attack.

:P

Great article from a great site www.ohltoughguys.com

Big, Bad, Bertuzzi?

By: Rob Way

Owner / Lead Writer

A lot has been written about former OHLer Todd Bertuzzi in the past couple

of weeks, but we here at OHLTG have been strangely silent. After some much

needed time to fully digest the situation, I'm ready to wade in with my

thoughts.

For starters, to REALLY understand what happened, two questions come to mind:

1) Did you see the initial incident where Steve Moore laid out Markus Naslund?

and

2) Did you watch the entire game, during which "it" happened, or just the

twenty second made-for-tv replay?

If you can not answer "yes" to both of these questions, then put a sock in it!

I did see the initial incident. Markus Naslund outstretched, and vulnerable,

nailed by Moore, who btw, is moving at a pretty high rate of speed. Naslund

crumples to the ice, woozy. Brad May, seeing this, comes over to get at Moore

but isn't able to given the fact a scrum, including the linesmen, separates them.

I did see the next game, in which nothing happened between the two teams, except

for a rather lousy heavyweight tilt between Wade Brookbank and Peter Worrell.

I did see the game in question, from beginning to end, and in doing so, am fully

aware of the context in which "it" occurred. First off, the game was not close.

Vancouver had lead in their skates while the Avs were flying.

The first period featured a few fights, including Matt Cooke and Steve Moore.

Now the thing about this fight, if you want to call it that, is the fact that

Moore had his chin strap welded on so tight, Cookie couldn't do anything more

than fire off a couple of shots to the visor. Meanwhile, Matt's bucket came off

easily enough and Moore actually landed a few decent shots.

As the game got progressively worse for the Canucks, the challenges began. As

I recall, Moore, before "it" happened, was challenged to fight fair and square

by Tyler Bouck, Brad May, and Jarko Ruutu. Steve declined all three. And, for

the record, Bertuzzi also tried to challenge Moore before going bonkers.

Now, with that little history lesson over and done with, let's get to my

thoughts.

First, I think that what Todd Bertuzzi did was shameful.

Second, I think that the NHL fairly punished Bertuzzi by taking away his right

to play for the rest of this season - including the playoffs.

Third, I think that this whole situation could have been avoided IF:

* Moore had originally shown some respect to Naslund either by letting up or

avoiding him completely; I mean let's face it, Markus is not a physical player

in any way, shape, or form

* Moore had been man-enough to fight any one of those Canucks who challenged

him to fight in the second and third periods, instead of skating away and basically

turning his back (literally) to the whole fiasco

Lastly, this particular incident reminds me of the night John Kordic raked his

stick over superpest Keith Acton's face (breaking his nose) a dozen years ago or

so. In that case, as was the case with Bertuzzi and Moore, the aggressors should

have simply known better than to think the agitators would actually fight back.

Moral of the story?

Simple, when the game is out of hand and you have a dance partner in mind, who

doesn't want to dance, ignore the instigator rule (the worst rule in hockey, but

that's a whole other commentary LOL) and drop the mitts. Pummel his turtling arse

until the lineys break it up and call it a day.

No behind the back (or neck) goon show stuff. It just ain't right.

OHL top Junior league and the guys reporting it - well, they played the game. I showed you an legit article but not good enough, just another man's opinion.

Ok, let me elaborate on

Stick work, which to some people is known as slashing - your telling me getting slashed in the wrist doesn't hurt? Please
