Bertuzzi Should Not Play For Team Canada

from the Toronto Sun,
Just a few winters back, Hockey Canada sent a team to the world junior championships and every player wore a bright red STOP patch on the back of his jersey. The idea being: If you can read the STOP sign it acts as a symbolic deterrent to prevent players from hitting from behind. This week, when Hockey Canada names its Olympic roster, it will be ignoring its own advocacy for safety if Todd Bertuzzi is somehow named to the Canadian team. And every indication is the Vancouver bad boy will be on the team. But consider the message of the action: It is win at all costs. It is damn the consquences. It is do as we say, not as we do.
