Calgary Flames general manager Darryl Sutter rolls out the welcome mat for new Flame Todd Bertuzzi yesterday:
Darryl Sutter scoffs at the notion that Todd Bertuzzi is not welcome in Calgary. One isolated incident -- his sucker-punch of Steve Moore in March, 2004 -- should not forever brand Bertuzzi a bad boy.
"That's a long time ago," the Flames general manager said Monday after signing the burly winger to a one-year deal worth US$1.95-million. "I had a traffic ticket three years ago. I hope there's three or four fans who can forget that I went through a red light."
I am hoping he didn't mean he ran a red light and broke somebody's neck. Is the Calgary hockey media covering for the boss on something?
