I can't say I blame Avs fans if they hate us. Back when that incident happened, I think a lot of Canucks fans were just lying to themselves, trying to justify it and hoping Bertuzzi wouldn't get suspended for long because we needed him in the lineup for the playoffs (Not that he was close to as good as he was the season before.). But, I mean, as Bertuzzi said, 'it is what it is', and what it was was not pretty. It hasn't gotten any less cringe-inducing to watch it over the years. Bertuzzi got very lucky that he only missed the playoffs. Canucks fans who still think Moore deserved it are screwed. Moore's hit would probably be suspendable today, but I've seen much worse. Duncan Keith on Daniel Sedin was much worse.
