Only a couple of links today, the Denver Post has photos up from the Colorado Avalanche rookie training camp. Including pictures of Peter Mueller with a dark visor, Duncan Siemens who looks incredibly young, and Gabriel Landeskog.
Steve Moore is going to get his day in court, the dates have been set. It has the potential to get ugly too with Todd Bertuzzi suing Marc Crawford for the potential settlement.
Bertuzzi contends that Crawford encouraged him to avenge Moore’s hit on then Canucks captain Markus Naslund in a game three weeks before the incident in Vancouver. Crawford denies that he sent Bertuzzi on the ice to exact retribution.
The stakes are high for Crawford, the Canucks and particularly Bertuzzi, who now plays for the Detroit Red Wings. While the Canucks and Crawford are covered by the team’s insurance policy, Bertuzzi is not because he pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to probation and 80 hours of community service.
Bertuzzi, 36, will be personally liable for any damages that may be awarded, although the Canucks’ insurance policy only covers the team and Crawford up to $10-million with an additional $1-million for legal fees.
Details about the MHH fantasy hockey pool will be released later on in the day.
