With the tragedy of recent events i was curious if the people on HF boards think Todd Bertuzzi will be on our Canada Team this summer. At first it seemed like he was a shoe in for the team, now iam not so sure.
That's a tough one. Gretzky couldn't praise Bertuzzi enough earlier in the year, I wonder if his recent actions will change that? One thing to keep in mind, Bert is only human, and like all humans he made a mistake. I think most logical people understand this, and by all accounts Bertuzzi is deeply upset over the stupid mistake he made, it's not like he doesn't see the wrong he had done.
In concluding, I think we will see Bertuzzi on Team Canada. Gretzky gave Fleury a chance after his drinking problems, I think we'll see Gretz give Bert a chance as well.
Yeah, as mentionned, you have standup guys like Rob Blake, Joe Sakic, ,Paul Kariya and Adam Foote on that team... I'm not sure it would be good towards team cohesiveness if Bertuzzi comes. However, there is still time between now and then.
Just another in the long line of threads recently that don't need their own thread. If you feel you must discuss the implications of his actions, find his thread like it is stated in the thread above. I'm going to cut a little slack and not issue any warnings or bans, but please remember to keep these threads to a minimum.
