wasnt as bad as people are making it. he didnt know he knocked him out with that first punch and if his head would have hit the ice at a different angle and avoided the spinal damage, he would have just been suspended for the rest of the reg. season.
really wasnt very vicious or anything, bertuzzi just didnt take into account how brutally strong he is and the fact he was out as soon as he punched him.
imo, they should get rid of fighting in hockey anyway, the self policing aspect is good, but the game suffers skillwise, and thats what its really about.
