He deserves to retire a Canuck. And would be a great mentor to our power forwards (mainly Kassian). I've always thought that he is the perfect linemate for the Sedins. We all know that he has great hands for his size, is patient with the puck by not forcing plays just like the Sedins, and is great at screening the goalie and scoring those dirty goals; which is the ideal set up for the twins. The Bertuzzi-Moore incident happened a decade ago! It's been 10 YEARS since. What have we got to lose? A playoff spot? Oh wait...

UH....ya sure. Because he hasn't had success anywhere else. Let's forget the lawsuit, bad history and all of that surrounding him and go get him as yet another plug in a line up full of them

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

This one's honestly been done to death. This place was a big black hole in the end for Bert...he still hasn't climbed out of it yet and I'm more than willing to bet he'd never consider this. The media, alone, was relentless in pursuing him as a monster...Ted Cherneski showing up in his front yard with his wife and kids inside.

It's like asking someone to willingly go back and redo their root canal for kicks. Just don't think there's much hope in this, as much as I'd support it.

I think we should bring back Naslund before thinking of bringing back Bert. Nazzy is the elite sniper the sedins are missing.

In fact, we should also think about Morrison for the 2nd line center. Jovo and Ohlund for our top 2, Salo+Sopel as well to round out our top 6.

Sedin-Sedin-Naslund
Kesler-Morrison-Kassian
Burrows-Schroeder-Booth
Kassian-Lain-Sestito

Jovo-Ohlund
Stanton-Tanev
Salo-Sopel

God no!

He has 11 points, 6 goals, in 44 games. He is a shadow of what he was and seems quite happy to play out his days on the 3rd or 4th line for the Wings.

**RETIRED...**

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

Sure. Then bring back Naslund and Morrison and we'll have the West Coast Express line back. Then we'll make a run for the cup. It'll be awesome!

If I were him i'd re-sign in Detroit or retire. Detroit is an organization that doesn't throw their players under the bus. We're still working on that.

The honor of retiring the best Power forward the Canucks ever had, while giving the finger to the league for how it handled the Bertuzzi/ Moore situation.

Well he broke the guy's spine for crying out loud, while I hated Moore and thought he was cheap, I didn't want him to become a cripple and his career to be ruined. I think Bertuzzi rightfully so deserves consequences from that incident

Not to turn this into a debate on said event, but "broken spine" and "cracked vertebrae" aren't exactly the same severity. Moore walks, and practices what he went to school for; Law.

"Moore suffered what was reported as three fractured vertebrae in his neck, a grade-three concussion, vertebral ligament damage, stretching of the brachial plexus nerves, and facial lacerations. He has not played hockey since, and subsequently launched a lawsuit against Bertuzzi seeking $38 million in damages."

http://www.straight....out-steve-moore

Steve Moore is not a cripple and his heart wasn't into hockey as much as in the Court. He made a career decision and brought the NHL and Bertuzzi along with him.

A player who has grown into an NHL player from "lesser opportune" environments and does not have such an education as a Harvard degree, will seek all the help he needs to get back on skates and get back to the NHL. There are numerous examples already including Eric Cole.

And for that, I leave you with a Scott Parker quote many will have missed by not reading the article in full. Parker played two years with Steve Moore as a member of the Colorado Avalanche.

“[Steve Moore] always thought he was better than everybody else. He went to Harvard, you know what, blow me. College grad.”

He goes on to say: “I watched that tape about a hundred times, and just the way Todd hit him, and he actually grabbed him to soften his blow when he went down.” And “it wasn’t vicious, it was just, it was the heat of the moment. It was one of those things where you, you want to do something, but you don’t know if it’s gonna be big, if it’s gonna be small, or how it’s gonna pan out. But you wanna do something” - Scott Parker.

With Tortorella protecting his team the way he does?

Bertuzzi would be ideal.

Why?
