Unbiased now....

I've been talking to people an a lot of them seem to think that Todd got of lightly, in an unbiased opinion do you think he got off with just a slap on the wrist?

This aguement has so many sides its hard to not get into it. But I believe he has served his time and gary buttman should allow him back into the game!

If Buttman has any balls, he will end this story now!

he served his time. getting left off team canada probably was bad enough. the courts never should've gotten involved in the first place.

The possibility of further action does not allow us to really address this question, but as for the courts, it is unfortunate that he was charged in the first place. The plea bargain as I understand it amounts to a sentence that he would of received had he gone through the process and lost the case for someone off the street. Added to that his name being put in every paper or TV news/sports report, I think that you have to side with his sentence being on the heavy side, so far.

The possible civil case has nothing to do with the NHL, his and the NHL's business is now complete and Gary Buttman should release him from suspension!

Apparently, Pat Morris, Bertuzzi's agent, could be meeting with Buttman as early as the first week of the New Year about re-instatement.

But why should they wait so long to talk about it, after all it really shouldnt be that hard to reinstate him should it... why not just do it now and get it over with instead of this all going too late and falling around the same time as Buttman meets the board of directors for the NHL

i guess Gary could be waiting until Moore is able to play hockey again even if it will be beerleague. if that's the case it will take a lot more time.

The NHL has NEVER done that. Suspensions have always been based on the act & results not recovery time. However, there has never been a suspension this long before either. The McSorley thing was different because he was a bum skating into retirement & Bettman was happy enough just to get rid of him. Here we're talking about one of the NHLs top stars. Anyone know if he lost his Gatorade deal?

I dont think gatorade would have cared at the moment because there is no hockey, but im pretty sure as far as sponsors go the same will happen to bert as happened to Olympic God Michael Phelps (phelps lost a few of his sponsorship deals for DUI)

...or maybe it will just enhance his image they portray of him knocking players through multiple walls.

The lockout in '94/95 went this long if I recall correctly.
