NHL says it will set a hearing for Bertuzzi

Now that all of the legal questions have mostly been answered in regards to the criminal proceedings against Todd Bertuzzi, the NHL has expressed that they are open to a hearing for the power forward.

Bill Daly, the NHl's chief legal officer said, "The commissioner would be prepared to schedule a meeting with Todd in the near future."

Should "Big Bert" be reinstated by the league, he would be free to join the already large number of players in Europe. As for whether or not the incident and all of the legal proceedings will affect how Bertuzzi's plays the game, former Canuck GM Brian Burke doesn't feel that it will.

"I don't think it's going to affect the way he plays," said Burke.

As for Steve Moore - he seems to be the forgotten one in all of this - it's been reported that his physical condition is slowly improving. However, he also continues to have reduced sensation in his right shoulder, reduced energy levels, problems with short-term memory, and dull headaches. Moore's physical activity is said to be very basic and includes mostly light workouts.
