very sad story, hopefully everything works out for him.

it's very sad that when asked if he had any contact with Bertuzzi, Moore went out to mislead the public by saying the only thing he can say is that he's not received a private apology. If he's honest, he would have said, "No, because I don't want to talk to Bertuzzi and has declined any request by Bertuzzi to speak to me."

Anyone who loves the game and sees the tape of Bertuzzi's assault knows that Big Bert shouldn't be anywhere near an NHL rink until Moore can come back (if even then).

I will never understand why people (ex. deaconblue and in some cases the NHL) think it is reasonable to base/bind bind suspension lengths on/to the resultant injury. All else being equal, if Moore had not been injured, should Bertuzzi still have been suspended? (my opinion is yes, of course he should, and just as harshly as he would be if Moore never plays again) What if a player is predisposed to a certain injury? What if the magnitude of the injury is greater than what could reasonably be expected?
This is not at all intended as a defence of Bertuzzi's actions, but rather that suspensions should be based solely on the action that was committed.

I don't think I can agree with Moore that his hit was clean. He extended his elbow into Naslund's head. Just because a penalty wasn't called or the NHL (in its "infinite wisdom" didn't rule it dirty doesn't make it not a dirty hit). That being said, Bertuzzi's play was clearly dirty and deserved a long suspension. Was it long enough? It's debateble. It is clear that Moore's story is sad and hopefully his health is as good as it can be, that's the most important thing in the aftermath of it all.

I'd like to see the NHL productions release the footage/audio but I'm sure that won't happen in light of what occured. I wonder if the NHL has done any more of these productions that are sitting in a vault somewhere. I hadn't even heard of the proposed Colorado feature till now.
