I agree. Bad decision that resulted in a major injury. I don't think Bertuzzi meant to hurt Moore. I didn't think it at the time it happened either. No injury, no problem. Unfortunately the injury was serious and he's paid for it. And he's not done paying for it either since there's a lawsuit still pending.
And Todd didn't act alone. Crawford basically gave an order to hurt Moore. That was corroborated by the director of hockey operations.

You don't have much room to talk... Did you see what your "leader" was doing in his last game? Talk about being a dick.
add to the fact that he has shown plenty of remorse over the situation and, as has already been stated, he has not shown the tendency to do this again, the guy has shown to have learned from his mistake.
He was a huge, dooshbag, thugass mistake. But history has shown that he has learned from it.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Sadly, Bertuzzi while definitely a shitbag for the Moore thing is still a huge pussy compared to this American hero.

I don't understand what people being critical in this thread want people to do? Not root for him, demand he be cut from the team? Ken Holland has decided he's deserving of a spot, it is what it is, he's on the team. I'm not going to try and say what he did wasn't wrong or stupid, but I do think he wouldn't have done it if he knew it would cost Moore the rest of his career. Besides, he sat out an entire year and was sued by Moore, for something like $5 million if I remember correctly, so it's not like he hasn't paid for it.
It's extremely unfortunate that Moore was hurt so badly, but have you lost all respect for Carkner on Ottawa too? He's done this twice now. I get that both times the guy was looking at him and knew he was there, but Bertuzzi was tugging on Moore's jersey so he knew he was there too. In all three instances, the aggressor just clocks an unsuspecting opponent, and the only real differences is that Carkner is lucky that neither guy has been seriously hurt. Bertuzzi's is definitely worse, but it's more an indictment on hockey culture and the tendency to go too far for a lot of guys then TB being a genuinely bad person.
Surely this won't be controversial.

Yup. I remember my dad hated Bertuzzi. And always said, it wasn't a bad hit. Just a really fluke injury. No one would make a fuss of it if the fluke injury didn't happen.
Todd Bertuzzi doesn't think he deserved what he got either. He hasn't been involved in a single incident since then. It was an unfortunate outcome to something that happens in hockey every once in a while.
Claude has a history of cheat shots. He was always a dirty player. He had several plays against the Wings that were way out of bounds.
Fixed it for you.
See, this is literally the definition of delusional.
I cannot say anything about the Red Wings because sidney crosby poke checked a guy's glove and Bertuzzi literaly paralized a man.
Makes complete sense.
Claude is more than a decent player. That has nothing to do with it. He was the Matt Cooke of his time. I could name several instances against just the Wings where he went way overboard.
Delusional is saying that Crosby only poke checked a guy's glove.
Yep, we can never assume anything about anything or anyone...
Also, this is hilarious from someone who's a fan of Mat Cooke.
I'm glad a funny story about Bert turned into a diatribe about something that happened 8 years ago, assholes.
Speaking factually, the wings 2 year Stanley Cup run in 08-09 were between Bertuzzi stints in detroit.
I do not like him for many reasons. That is opinion.
What's your point?
I have many points, but in relation to bertuzzi just one:
Wings pride themselves on chemistry/family mentality and he just doesn't fit. I found myself chuckling about the Weber fight.
Hahahahahahahahahahaha you're a fucking retard.
It would be even more hilarious if it were true.
Red Wings say no truth to Bertuzzi taking ping pong paddles away from Predators. Security told Nashville table was off limits.
Of course they are saying that, I'm convinced that Bert walked up, flicked them off, and folded up the table and took it.
Then paralyzed all of them!
Sounds like it was Bertuzzi, however, who made it very clear to security that the Predators were not to play ping pong on Red Wings table.
