This city was absolutely blood-thirsty and hell-bent on getting revenge for the Naslund injury just before that game too, and if there ever was a "be careful what you wish for" situation for Canucks fans, THAT WAS IT. It could certainly be argued that it was fan fury and expectation that whipped up that situation into the ugly (although ultimately accidental) result that transpired.

I would think we would have learned from past mistakes.
No, I don't wince at all. Bertuzzi is extremely stupid and that type of an attack is so gutless that I don't think another Canuck will ever try to emulate that assault unless they want to be sitting out for a few seasons. Kinda eerie that Brashear pulled a similar move quite recently in some other league though.
