This comedy starts 24 Sept. Looks like Moore and his parents (???) are seeking for 20M. I'm upset to say the least. Todd already paid around 2M and these bastards are still not satisfied.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

It was later revealed that when he became GM with Anaheim, Burke offered Moore a two-way playing contract in 2005.


If he had medical clearance, this should be used to show that he didn't even make the effort to come back. I did not follow this incident so I only know what I've read here and from posted references but I think that Bert is truly sorry for what he did and he probably never forgets what happened. This guy was young enough that if he decided he couldn't play anymore he should have found another way to make a living, yes it may not have been an NHL salary but he could have made a career out of something else. *sarcasm* But it's always easier to sue for money...it's the American way. *sarcasm*

Feel sorry for Todd, he's apologised, he obviously feels terrible about what happened, and hes paid Moore compensation. We all make mistakes in life, this was a major one by Todd, but surely he should be allowed to move on?

Naslund should sue Moore, lindros should sue Stevens, savard should sue Cooke, etc. Any time any hockey player has a serious injury, he should be able to sue the player who injured him. You should never be held responsible for your own choices and actions in life if your a victim**

From reports that I have heard, he's suing for $38M, not $20M. Proceedings start next year, we'll see what happens. I have absolutely no idea what is supposed to support the $38M, it surely isn't lost income because there is absolutely no way he would have made that much. I'm guessing, over his career, he probably would have made about $3-5M.

Ding. ding. freaking ding to the bolded part! Furthermore, this is ridiculous and this case should be immediately thrown out, it was unfortunate and I feel for the guy, but it happened on the ice, not in the street and does not belong in the courts...

Naslund should sue Moore, lindros should sue Stevens, savard should sue Cooke, etc. Any time any hockey player has a serious injury, he should be able to sue the player who injured him. You should never be held responsible for your own choices and actions in life if your a victim**

Another VERY solid point - as I said, on the ice, out of the courts. period.

I wrote an article on this after reading about the lawsuit. (Shameless Self Promotion) And from what I have read it looks like 38 million plus. Moore's lawyers say the 38 is the estimated loss of income he would have earned over his NHL career, plus more due to the fact that the brain damage he suffered prevented him from pursuing a post hockey career in finance.

"Moore's parents, who were watching their son on television when the attack happened, are also suing, seeking $1.5 million for "for negligent infliction of nervous shock and mental distress."(all figures in Canadian dollars). Moore's lawyer filed the suit one day before its two-year limitation expired, denying there was any connection between the timing and the 2006 Winter Olympics"


What scumbag f***s, especially that lawyer who undoubtedly dreamed this stupid s*** up and used to to get press at olympic time.

Give me a break. So now everytime any player gets a hard check or gets in a fight, their parents can sue for "infliction of shock and stress"?

Bertuzzi is looking even more and more like the better of the two. And that is sad.

Moore turned down NHL offers the following season following the incident. It's clear what Moore is trying to do and has been trying to do. In Bert we trust!

There is speculation that the offer was made only to help Bert in his case(s), but I haven't seen any real evidence either way. I feel bad for Moore (we all should), and 2m may have been too little, but 38m+ is ridiculous IMO. Is he also suing his teammates that jumped on him?

Sad. The guy gets dogpiled and is badly injured. At that point, I really feel for the guy. Now, having apologized and paid financially, Bert is moving on. Any more retribution should be against the guys who piled on him.

Every time I see a hit or anything followed by a fight where the teammates get in on the scene, I get sick all over again. The Kronwall hit on Havsplat™ was the worst. The poor guy gets Kronwalled, which is painful enough, then knocked out, then his teammates rush over to start a shoving match with Kronwall as the guy is laying unconscious at their feet. I was waiting for one of them to kick him in the face. I only enjoyed the hit on the replay.

Players need to use their heads and make sure that the injured guy is out of the way before they attack the guy they're mad at. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

This is a joke. But what can you expect these days..you can get sued for anything. If this took place in the 50s, nobody would give a damn about the joke Moore is just a few weeks after he was beaten to a pulp.

I think the fact that he thinks he would have made 40mil in the NHL is proof enough that he has massive brain damage, lol.
