I know there are a few here that enjoy watching and we even have a few players, so what's the take on Bertuzzi's hit that left Steve Moore with a concussion and a broken neck

Kinda makes Aaron Yates look like a saint.

Thing is, It's ben going on in hockey for years. at least in this case he will be punished . unlike yates slap on the paw he got.
and it's not the worst hit I've seen. their are players that have been jailed for less and those who got away with it. At least he didn't slash him with a highstick head shot like the guy who almost lost his eye.
Makes you think all the stink will sort of put a reign in on the enforcers and paybacks goning on in the team's.

He's not the first to do so but it was an absolutely fuck'n unacceptable cheap-shot. And if he hadn't been pulled away, he would still be beating on an unconcious player. I'm all for protecting your own but this shit has incrementally now reached the breaking point of the intention of doing serious harm to another player.

Bertuzzi should be banned from the game & face criminal charges if at all possible and a different expectation needs to be for a different standard of future play.

Bertuzzi's in deep shit. Totally unacceptable behavior. I'm not one who's in favor of law enforcement getting involved but I hope the NHL takes harsh action. I think a year-long ban (or more) ought to send the proper message.

Well... as a Blue Liner I have been subjected to many minutes in the box. Enforcing is a way of keeping players from cheap shots, knowing that if they cheap shot your teammate they will be delt with. This unfortunately usually escalates to inappropriate violence.
Take Matt Johnson, who sucker punched a favorite defensmen, Jeff Beukeboom and ended his career. That led to a brawl with Darren Langdon the next time they met up. To me it was necessary for Langdon to make retribution against Johnson... it's just the way it goes.
I didn't see the hit... only read about it. But I think that if you have to hit someone from the back you should be banned from the NHL and it's Junior teams. Let them rot in the semi pro's. If you're not man enough to hit someone from the front or side you're a pussy and shouldn't be in the NHL.

Just my $.02... Now you guys know why I have "Icy" in my nickname...

I think so but I'd have to ask my son. He's got more of the memory cells still intact. He remembers everybodys names, numbers, stats in just about any N.American. sport. He's like the damn almanac of sports.

Thank Doyle.

Hang the bastard by his huts. There was no call nor reason for the cheap shot punch to the head from behind. Suspension for life from hockey is too good for that assfuck. He should become Bubbas boyfrend in the slammer.
