Former Vancouver Canucks coach Marc Crawford has been dragged into a multi-million dollar lawsuit over NHL forward Todd Bertuzzi's infamous sucker punch on Steve Moore.
Moore originally file the suit against Bertuzzi and courts documents show the former NHL player has now consented to name Crawford in the suit as well.
Bertuzzi sought to have Crawford included in the suit based on the claim that his NHL contract compelled him take direction from his coach.
Is Bertuzzi shifting the blame onto his coach, or is Crawford also liable for what happened on the ice in 2004? Have your say in our forum.

He should have been permanently banned from playing hockey in the NHL.
Maybe something like this (or worse) will happen again in the NHL and they'll wake up and do something about it.

The NHLPA also shows its bush-league status by completely backing Bertuzzi and doing nothing for Moore - who is also a paying member of the PA.

Now he is playing with a bunch of other goons he is a tough guy every shift.
I hope you get yours Bertuzzi, watching you run around the ice against Dallas is comical. I use to think you were a talented hockey player, now I think you are a buffon on skates!

Should be interesting to see what happens.

Punching someone from behind then jumping on them is pretty cowardly in my opinion.

It seems that more & more professional athletes tend to think that its "someone elses fault" every time they get caught in a rough spot.
Time to pay the fiddler!
As far as I'm concerned, all of these supposedly professionals need to get a reality check; last time I looked, the average working guy takes his pill when he/she screws up.
Fun to think though that whatever transpires out of all of this, everyones lawyer will be raking in the dough... (Damn, I should have listened to Mom & became a Pro's lawyer; whatever happens, I get paid)...
