Have you forgiven Todd Bertuzzi?
Wed, August 27, 2008

Famous for sending one of the loudest messages in sports lore, Todd Bertuzzi delivered a much gentler one to Calgary Flames fans yesterday.

"Obviously I'm well aware I wasn't the most popular pickup in Calgary Flames history but at the same time, I think you have to give it a little bit of time and give me a chance," said the bruising winger at his introductory press availability alongside four other new Flames.

"Given the chance, I think I can prove myself and help this team out."

Have you forgiven Todd Bertuzzi for his on-ice attack of Steve Moore in 2004? Have your say in our forum.

Bertussi is a thug. The Flames have gone from an honorable franchise to a dishonorable one just by hiring this low class thug. It will be very difficult to cheer for this team this year.

No. when you're booted out of the NHL it's serious. for life I say. He's not even that good a player.

Nope not forgiven.

Not sure why he is still even playing in the NHL!

WOW, let the man play hockey...many hockey players from the past have done horrible acts of violence on the ice and everyone says nothing of those..Bertuzzi was and still could be a very good hockey player..."Bleeding Hearts...please suck it up"

Absolutely not. Nor will I ever. Bertuzzi is a thug, plain and simple

Get Over it...

Bertuzzi should have been kicked out of the league forever for his cowardly attack. The only reason he should still be playing is if half of his salary is going to Moore.

No

He has never accepted responsibility nor has he issued a unqualified apology. In fact several times during interviews he cast himself as a victim.

Deliberately perpetrated incidents like the one that Todd Bertuzzi inflicted are not a matter of forgiveness but rather safety for fellow players. Calgary did not need this violent player. My interest in watching Calgary play hockey this year will definitely be affected by this poor choice.
