Again, he wasn't a kid and now he's suing. If Rypien wasn't a professional hockey player this would not be happening.


Legally he is not a kid but I'm old and everyone is a kid to me.:lol:

I stand corrected. I don't agree with it, but it is the law I suppose. Had Rypien dragged the kid down and kicked him with his skate, would be an assault to me. But I guess Rypien is facing as minor of an assault charge as possible.

We ALL have different interps of the law. Personally, going 5mph or 5KPH over the speed limit isn't speeding in MY eyes, but for the law it is. Let's just hope that the fan doesn't sue Rypien in civil court, that's where he can get emotional distress and other legalities against him and the team(both) and the arena.

LOL! Reminds me of the Duncan Keith/fan incident, at least Keith had a great sense of humor.

According to a tweet by Michael Russo (Minneapolis Star-Tribune), it wasn't a kid or even a teen:



@russostrib


yeah, that confirms this guy is a douchebag. he is a grown man and instantly resorts to lawyers. what a fricking coward. regardless of what the law says, dude was not harmed. the law needs to change apparently.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

I'm with ya on that. Its just laughable to sue someone for grabbing your shirt in MY eyes.

Yes grabbing someone that doesnt want to be grabbed is assault in almost(more than likely) every country in the US. How is that so unbelievable?

I suspect the league will give them some sort of compensatory package, likely tickets to some upcoming high-profile game.

Why would they want that when instead they'll take both franchises, and the league to court, and attempt to sue for millions?

When I saw the hilights last night - all I could think of is how many lawyers in the greater Twin Cities began salivating at the thought of representing this father/son pair of brothers.

Okay, we do agree on this. I still think Rypien assaulted him, no matter which way you cut it, in the eyes of the law he was assaulted. And I still think Rypien should be dealt with accordingly.

BUT, this guy, whom I thought was a teenager, has lost some points in my book. Dude, you've got an awesome story, you weren't hurt, take the free tickets I am sure you were offered and run. Howf****** typical we are, the FIRST thing we do is run to the laywers to sue for millions. I hope if a case is brought up it gets thrown out, no grounds.

How many people get to say they went face to face with an NHL Tough Guy? I'd take the tickets and free food! :thumbup:

yeah, we are probably 95% in agreement. i have no problem with a suspension as long as its reasonable. my only complaint with all this is they are making way too big of a deal. if what rypien did was 'assault' then the law needs to change. what rypien did was wrong; however it was pretty inconsequential and trivial.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

i have a feeling this guy is going to turn out to be a class A idiot. He will claim to be such a loyal hockey fan only to turn around and attempt to sue his own Wild, the NHL, Canucks and Rypien.

While a TRUE hockey fan would expect a round of drinks from his buds while talking about how awesome it was.

I guess we should be thankful the fan wasn't black, otherwise Rypien would be looking at a hate crime and jail time..

Have to agree with some of the comments, I think it's very cheesy for "the victim" to try and immediately cash in on this. Yes it was inappropriate, but nothing came of it, he should laugh it off.

Hate crimes go from fifth degree down to at least 3rd degree and a felony, yikes! Maybe it was afterall, maybe Rypien attacked him because he was American? Lol.

Engquist said he didn't receive an apology from the league, Rypien or the Canucks. He said he hasn't heard anything from the Wild.


That's messed up.
