Todd Bertuzzi not yet reinstated to NHL, the irony of his trying to get reinstated is that there isn't exactly any games getting played right now thus making his reinstatement meaningless for the moment even if he had been. I'm still of two minds as to whether or not he should be allowed back into the league, I don't like the idea of criminal charges to athletes, I think that the playing field/ice /whatever, is a different place then the 'real world' and the league should be responsible for justice for what happens in the confines of that playing surface.

That said, I suspect that Bertuzzi will be allowed back in for the simple reason that he is a star player, if it had gone the other way and it had been Bertuzzi on the receiving end things might be a completely different story.
