Actual the thing people need to realize is that this going to the courts could be a very bad thing for the NHL on several levels

several groups are watching this to see the outcome--because more or less--what has happened on the ice has stayed on the ice--but now when the courts get involved the nhl could find themselves being dragged in by insurence companies who have to pay out over injuries--

here is an example

say player X from Team A injures one of the twins and ends his career. The canuck insurer decides that the injury was intentional and decides to sue team A to recoup the insurance money--well first step is they would go to the criminal side and try to make a case first--because if they can get a criminal convistion--it would be easier to win the civil case down the road-- there are some huge implications that could come from this
