Good thing I read your post beforehand because I was going to give him kudos as well.

I was listening to your namesake (Barry Melrose) over the weekend and he gave a passioned speech about how the media blew this whole thing up. He said the suspension was warrented to Bertuzzi but the coverage was overblown. He ripped into the media as to why they don't say the same thing about baseball during a brawl. How come they don't rip the NBA when another player is found with drugs or whatever.

It was a great speech because he defended the NHL from his heart. Just like Weinrich!!!
