Personally, I think it's awful. It only enhances the sense of lawlessness that the NHL has, and you see that trickle down into kids' games, where vigilante justice is an accepted part of the game. To call that a 17 month suspension is particularly disingenuous"”more like 25 games. Should Bertuzzi be banned for life? I'm not sure, but I'm positive that this suspension isn't long enough by a long shot.
