And there is a code in the NHL that says you take out a teams best player, the next time you play that team, you man-up, take the consequences and fight the teams enforcer...........Bertuzzi, was trying to get at Moore all game, and Moore played the role of pussy and neglected to Man-up, and he ran from Bertuzzi all game........finally Bertuzzi had the chance, face to face, and Moore still wouldn't drop the gloves, and Bertuzzi suckered him.
Let's not forget, that the broken neck may very well have happened from the 4 Avalanche players who jumped onto Bertuzzi and all of them onto Moore's back/neck,.
yea i remember what Moore did to Naslund. Naslund was bleeding on the ice, but no one was expecting a payback from Bertuzzi. You make a clear point about Bertuzzi's situation. i've always liked him as a player regardless of the incident, but looked real painful when Moore's face was just sliding down the ice with all those people on him.
i think the NHL needs more players like Lidstrom. humble with sick skills.
can you imagine Fedor playing hockey?
