Ugly hockey incident in Vancouver vs. Colorado

Ugly incident in the Vancouver Canucks vs. Colorado Avalanche NHL hockey game tonight...

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?id=75624

Although I am a Canuck's fan, Bertuzzi's piledrive of Moore's head face first into the ice was one of the dirtiest hits ever, it ranks a step below McSorley's wicked two-hander (with hockey stick) against Brashear's head from behind. IMO, the suspension will be the rest of the season (14 games) and probably the rest of the playoffs.

I didn't see the hit live....but seen it on a replay several times. Wow, Bert just went ape on Moore. This will probably cost Bert a position on the World Cup later this year. Although I didn't like Moore's dirty hit on Naslund (he went out of his way to hit Naslund's head....should have been suspended by the NHL for a couple of games IMO), he didn't deserve what Bert gave him. I blame a (little) part of Bertuzzi's actions on the NHL for not suspending Moore in the first place.

3 games, right. This punk bitch will be lucky if he gets only 10. Classless puke.

10 games if he's lucky, expect McSorely type numbers. This was premeditated. There was a bounty out on Moore, Brad May and Betuzzi said it in the media.

My guess - Suspended rest of the regular season, and the playoffs.

Also, the Cannots just royally effed themselves out of winning the division. Trade deadline is at noon, Coach was supposedly getting the axe, but this just awoke the sleeping giant

If it's about 15 games (that's the latest from those in the know), it's gonna cost Bertuzzi over $1 million in salary. That's a very expensive bounty on Moore.

McSorley got 23 games plus playoffs and Boston wasn't in the playoff hunt.

Wonder if all those fans in BC who were calling for McSorley to be jailed for assault will call for the same punishment for Big Bert

Actually. More than a few of them are.

I'm a Canucks fan but that was a totally classless thing for Bertuzzi to do. 8 game supension at least.

Jesus that was dirty. What a *****...you don't circle around the guys back and grab his jersey from behind...that is just wrong.

He should get 21 games at least...thats what Dale Hunter got back in the day for his cheap shot on Turgeon...and this was way worse.

Bertuzzi is a clown. Wasn't McSorley's hit on Brashear also in Vancouver? Must be something in the water up there.

What a chicken shit way to go after somebody. If you're going to fight, then fight. Don't blindside the guy. If Zimmer can charge Pedro head on, then a hockey "enforcer" has no excuse.

Crap like that belongs in a back alley behind some trashy bar not on the ice. Hockey gets a bad rap for all the voilence and when stuff like this happens it makes it worse.

Bertuzzi needs to sit out the rest of the season plus playoffs. Don't know if he will get that much but I'm hoping.

Can anyone dig up a video clip of the McSorley/Brashear incident??

OK, i just saw this and you know it reminded my of the way Jeff Beukeboom got nailed from behind in a very simalar way. It ended his career with a concusion. Anyone know the extent of Moore's condition 'cause that was scary as hell. You can't call this a cheap shot this was beyond that.

I really think that he should be gone for the rest of the season and the playoffs. This was a premeditated act, not a heat of passion thing. At least have the balls to turn the man around before you take a shot at him.

Nice...i just read one article that said Vancouver coach Marc Crawford was laughing during the whole thing....how appropriate that he's now their coach...i'm sure he did a whole lot to dissuade them from acting like animals...not. god what a bunch of tools....

Anybody else see Worrell spear a few Nucks on the bench? Rumor from those in the know, are that one of them dropped an "N" bomb on him. Worrell lost it, he almost yanked the fan out of the stands who threw something at him.

As for Bertuzzi, he isn't exactly known for his intelligence. I wouldn't be surprised if the guy yelled "ooga booga" before he socked Moore in the back of the head.

Just another example of why the instigator should be removed.

Granato says that Crawford was laughing. If that is the case, he should be suspended and fined as well. There is no doubt that Crawford sent the players out to get Moore, especially since the game was a blowout, and the Canucks were getting beaten in the fights.

I am also a fan of the Canucks, but this just sickens me. And I am surprised that there is not much talk about criminal charges yet, considering the brutality and cowardice of the hit. If a visiting player had to do it, I don't think that he would have gotten away with it without some kind of legal hearing.
