That was just not needed. No one deserves that ssseth. Probably because you mostly played pickup games that you have the opinion of "street justice". As a player, knowing that there is someone willing to do that to you is one of the reasons why you doubt the shape of the sport. I had a guy always go after me when I played high school even when I didnt have the puck. Everytime I came out there, he was sent in to either slash me, cross-check me, or sucker punch me when the ref wasnt looking. So not only did I have to contend with the puck and the play, but I had to always keep my eye out for that fat fuck all the freaking time. It just wasnt fun.
I think Bertuzzi should be benched for atleast 20 games. That kind of shit has no place in hockey. If the NHL wants people to see it as a sport thats fun and exciting, they should send a strong message that such almost criminal like behavior is not tolerated.
