Wings and Datsyuk seek to hang on against Canucks who are always tough in their own building.

I have to give you respect for being candid and knowledgeable. I am always willing to admit when I am wrong and you make a strong enough argument that forces me to reconsider my position against Bertuzzi. I should not judge him so harshly and I concede.

Granted, but for the amount these boys get paid, they could employ better judgement. I suppose in the heat of the moment things get caried away, and for that, I should ease up on Bert. You are right I guess. I suppose I am bitter about the consequences that prevailed as a result and I should just let it go.

My contention is simple- Bertuzzi let his emotions take over his judgement and hurt someone in the process. Hockey is headed for some changes and some have already come as a result of that type of behaviour. He is a very strong boy and needs to be aware of his dynamite strength. A good clean hit is one thing but a homing missile does damage, often irrepairable!

Moore was vicious in his own right, but I have always contended that skill will always better the dirty aspect of hockey. Berts move was a bad judgement call and bad timing. By no means though does it justify Moores behaviour either. As a retired official, if the game is clean, I will not call many penalties. In the case of what transpired at that particular game, if you were to research a copy of that game, you will find that the officials at the time "let" it get out of hand, resulting in a tragic injury to Moore. The on-ice officials are charged with the responsibility of keeping the game under control and it is my clear contention they failed miserably at their charge. That game will always be etched in my memory as a failure of on-ice officiating and a clear example of what happens when you do not do your job properly!
