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

"If the Detroit Red Wings are defying gravity" by consistently contending without the benefit of high draft picks, "the Edmonton Oilers are defying lift.

Welcome to Edmonton Connor McDavid--the rest of you HA HA HA HA HA HA
