08:24 AM ET 03.19 | Todd Bertuzzi is doing what he can, which, unfortunately for him, isn't much these days, to return. [Bertuzzi] has taken several pain-killing shots and has gotten plenty of rest in the five weeks since he was hospitalized with severe back pain. ... [Bertuzzi] desperately wants to play again this season. "I'd like to get back, because the only other option is getting it fixed," Bertuzzi said Monday. "I'm going to try to rehab and get it back to being strong enough to where I can play. I don't want to play one game and be back to where I've been. I want to be able to last the remainder of the games." Nobody knows when he will return -- or if he will be back this season. "With the back, it's just time," Bertuzzi said. "I don't have an answer."

With the back, it's just time, Bertuzzi said.



And with the neck, it's forever!

Too bad, at one time Bert was a great player on the west coast express. He was to selfish though and cost the Canucks a real shot at the cup. He is 38 and the wheels have falling off. They need to have a night in Vancouver where he can come to center ice and shake Moore's hand and ride off into the sunset. By that I mean he gets a 10 sec head start before Moore is allowed to hunt him down and string him up by his thumbs.

This idiot should have missed as many games as Moore did.

March 19, 2013  09:55 AM ET

Karma catching up eh Bert !

March 19, 2013  10:00 AM ET

This is one player that I'll never feel sorry for.

It should have been a lifetime ban, no matter if/when Moore ever would have returned.

I'm more of a forgiving individual.

I'd like to see him back playing for the Wings.

I kind of like Todd Duh now he is no longer a Canuck.

I always thought that should be the rule

Bertuzzi is still in the league?

Indeed.... this pillock should have been banned for life.

perhaps if Bertuzzi would pay Moore some sort of compensation for prematurely ending his hockey career.

shootout wizard.

when you see the big man dangle on a breakaway you see the talent and it makes you sad to know what could have been. this guy was absolutely dominant at one point in time.

slippery slope. maybe in the really egregious cases, but not as a general rule.

Million dollar hands and a 5 cent brain.

I remember his time with the Canucks was out of this world on that line with Naslund, but man oh man, did he fade after life in Vancouver.
