What is the deadline for Trades today? Is it Midnight or is it during the day?

The Stars Picked up Valerie Bure (excuse my ignorance, but is he any relation Pavel?) and we also got some guy from Philly who is on the "Day to Day" list and in NHL lingo that could mean he has been dead for weeks or lost an arm in a thresher incident or could just have a hang-nail.

Good, Pavel was one of my favorite players early in his career.  And that was even before I knew he was dating Anna K.

Hopefully his brother is the Russian Rocket part II.

The hammer falls down on Bertuzzi today. My guess, bye, bye!

I think the NHL is going to make an example of Bertuzzi and that he will be gone for the season, including the playoffs.  
There go the hopes of my favourite team in the West.
My finals prediction:  Ottawa vs. Detroit.
I would say Leafs-Wings but I don't want to jinx my Buds.... :P

I saw it last night and it didn't look as bad as I heard everyone was saying it was, its horrible Moore cracked his neck and it could have been a ton worse...

Bertuzzi though like I said is a thug and Public Enemy #1 here in MN, I'd be happy if he was gone for the rest of the year, it was a cheap shot and stupid, him falling on top of Moore and almost killing him was almost secondary and looked accidental. Serves him right for being an idiot

I don't think its as bad as the McSorley/Brashear incident...Bertuzzi took a cheap shot but I really don't think he wanted to do as much damage as he did

It was premeditated. The intent to injure was there & theres no excuse for it. If he gets charged, that will be up to the court of law as to what they will do & that would be very interesting.

I concur that it didn't look as bad as I'd heard but I still think Bertuzzi is an idiot.  How many stories have you heard where bar fights break out and someone gets killed?  Hello sh!thead, you're fit and strong, over 200 pounds and still wearing your glove.  You pop a guy in the side of the head with all your strength and he's going to get hurt.  

8-2!  That was the score.  Nobody but an idiot would fight at that point.  

I have zero sympathy for a thug like Bertuzzi.  He's exactly like some clown that kills a guy in a bar fight and uses being drunk as his defense.  shucks, I didn't mean to break his neck.  Yeah well my boot didn't mean to hit you between the eyes either jackass. >:(

Hmmm, I disagree with the authorities getting involved...

Hockey's a violent game...  I've been one who supports the fighting, and I think an incident like this (and the McSorely one) where the authorities take over is going to have an impact on how the NHL handles fighting overall.

I think it's inevitable that fighting will someday be banned...  I'm an old-time purist that will be sad to see it go though.  I think it's a part of the game, no matter how brutal it is.  

And I agree, this wasn't as bad as it was blown up to be (and is still being touted as "horrific"), but it ended in a broken neck...  I could see a year's suspension without pay, or worse...  Not many teams are goiong to want him on their side either.  He'll pay outside what punishment he would've gotten from the league anyway.

Criminal charges are unnecessary I believe...  

I've had cheapshots taken at me, some of them pretty brutal in games, and I wouldn't want "criminal" charges filed.  Just my shot back at him next time I saw him.

Did you see Bertuzzi's speech/plea last night!  ::)
"I don't play the game that way. I'm not a mean-spirited person".
