hmm...

During game 1 of the Finals, Bettman was interviewed and asked about Bertuzzi not being on Canada's World Cup roster. He said it was ENTIRELY Hockey Canada's decision.

Heatley, as Simmons said, was involved in the car accident surrounded by "what still seem to be mysterious circumstances". As sad as the story is, Heatley rebounded from serious injuries and overcame what must have been a lot of guilt. His perseverence and dedication to the game (and recovering so quickly from injury) - in addition to his very solid performance for Canada at the World Championships confirm that he is worthy of being called a role model.

As for Thornton, we know all too well. He is defnitely a player worthy of being looked up to. He is one of the few players remaining able to control the tempo of a game whenever he's on the ice. I can't help but put him in the same league as Lemieux, Gretzky, and more recently, Forsberg. Not yet in his prime, his game will only get stronger.

I'm not defending Hockey Canada's decision to exclude Bertuzzi from the roster. I'm not all that sure how I feel about the entire situation. Without a doubt Gretzky and company were trying to play it safe.

What are your thoughts on the decision?
