We love big hits at TBL. Even more than that, we love to point out how much we hate dirty hits. That’s why players like Todd Bertuzzi are so important to business. The guy has a violent past that borders on criminal. So whenever he has a big hit, it’s going to be questioned. Even if the player – in this case Ryan Johnson – sees it coming and arguably ducks into Bertuzzi’s flying elbow, there’s a thin gray line. Bertuzzi earned 5 minutes and a game misconduct for the hit.
Filthy ankle breakers.
Everyone loves him.
Even with Jackson’s new contract, that’s a hefty chunk of change.
