More Blame On Bertuzzi

from Terry Frei of ESPN,
Wednesday will be the second anniversary of Bertuzzi's mugging of Colorado center Steve Moore. ...But the pertinent point now is that Bertuzzi's selection to the Olympics is indicative of a mind-set that helped diminish Canada's chances in Torino. It was a mockery of the Olympic ideal, and the fact that it gets mocked plenty is no excuse. It sent that inappropriate message to young players in a nation in which Hockey Canada's terrific ads promote the concept that it's only a game, opponents must be respected, and parents need not act like all games are Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals.
read on...and I wonder if Frei would be writing this if he wasn't based in Denver...
