Aren't They Supposed To Fight In Hockey?!
So Todd Bertuzzi has been charged with assault for the bash job he did on Steve Moore last season. While I think we all know he's not going to get the 10 year possible maximum, nor do I think he should. In fact I think it's likely he won't go to jail at all and I'm ok with that too. Hockey's a tough sport and shit happens. Granted, Bertuzzi went way over the line of acceptable behavior, but I don't think it warrants jail time. Still, it's nice to see the league, and the courts, taking this seriously. Hockey should be physical, but hockey is not ABOUT fighting and random violence.
