Puck Daddy has an article on Steve Moore.

After filing suit against Bertuzzi in 2006, Moore will finally see his case go to trial on this September.

Appearing on Friday's edition of the FAN590's Hockey Central at Noon to promote a street hockey tournament this weekend benefiting his foundation, Moore gave an update on his health all these years later.

"It's been a long road and I still have some post-concussion issues, but all in all I'm really appreciative of the recovery that I've made," Moore said.

If you missed the Canucks - Flames game you missed some interesting moments.

Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella is in trouble with the National Hockey League. Of that, there is no question. It says so right in the league rulebook, on page 69, rule 46.8, under the sub-title: Fighting Off the Playing Surface.

“Whenever a coach or other non-playing club personnel becomes involved in an altercation with an opposing player, coach, or other non-playing club personnel on or off the ice, (he) shall be automatically suspended from the game, ordered to the dressing room and the matter will be reported to the commissioner for further disciplinary action.”

The question, of course, is whether storming down the hallway towards an opponent’s dressing room door and grappling with team personnel, in this case the Calgary Flames, constitutes an ‘altercation.’ Tortorella was irate that Flames counterpart Bob Hartley deployed his fourth-line players to start Saturday’s game. When Tortorella matched, a line brawl ensued two seconds into the game. Eight players were ejected, four aside. One of those was Canuck minor-league call-up Kellan Lain, who was appearing in his first NHL game.
