Can the NHL Save Itself?

A brutal attack seems to be the only hockey anyone is watching

By JOEL STEIN

It's fun, this finger wagging, this easy moral superiority. So every news channel, editorial writer and sports columnist spent a lot of last week excoriating Todd Bertuzzi, who plays hockey for the Vancouver Canucks. All Bertuzzi did was sneak up behind Colorado Avalanche centerman Steve Moore toward the end of a 9-2 game last week and punch that member of the winning team in the side of the head. Then slam Moore's face into the ice until his neck broke and the blood pooled. Bertuzzi was rearing back for another shot when other players intervened. Some fans at Vancouver's GM Place called the police to have them arrest Bertuzzi

OK, did these guys even bother to watch the incident?!? :argh:
