Former Boston Bruins fan favourite Tyler Bertuzzi is facing some major accusations following a recent announcement and it's not a good look.

The day before free agency opened, the Toronto Maple Leafs announced an extension with forward Max Domi, that basically confirmed that Tyler Bertuzzi would not be returning to the Leafs again.
The day of free agency it was announced that the Chicago Blackhawks signed Tyler Bertuzzi that shocked many people including himself.
During an interview Bertuzzi stated that he spoke with Nick Foligno a former teammate on the Boston Bruins and he convinced Bertuzzi to go and sign with the Blackhawks.
«Chicago wasn't really on my radar,» said Bertuzzi. «The day before free agency, Nick Foligno called me and said that they (Chicago) were interested. I was obviously excited about that and things went on from there.»

«We just talked about the organization, the city, where to live, and things that are important to me and my family while obviously moving to a new city,» Bertuzzi added.
Since this, many fans have been accusing the Blackhawks and Bertuzzi for tampering because Foligno spoke to Bertuzzi before signing a contract. The NHL has made it clear that tampering is against the rules and fans believe that both Bertuzzi and Foligno are guilty of doing this.
How is
@capfriendly
reporting Sam Carrick and Tyler Bertuzzi have already signed with new teams? Doesn't that constitute tampering?
