TORONTO - One of Todd Bertuzzi's lawyers has confirmed that a "firm and binding settlement" has been reached in Steve Moore's lawsuit against Bertuzzi for the former Vancouver Canuck player's attack in 2004 during an NHL game.

Geoff Adair, a lawyer for Bertuzzi, confirmed the news and added that the terms of the settlement are bound by a confidentiality agreement.

Is it wrong that I hope the settlement amount gets leaked out?

After such a long saga, it's a shame the numbers are going to be disclosed.

Rumor has it $22 million.

And no "the I doubt he gets anything!" Crowd deserves some crow.

How is Bertuzzi able to afford numbers like that? Capgeek lists his career earnings at $47M. In that Lundqvist article InjuredChoker posted recently, he said that players get to keep ~60% of their contract value.

So even if Todd spent <400k per year he wouldn't have 22M

yeah i'd think so.


iirc in one of those threads in here someone estimated that 'fair' guess for moore's career earnings where 13 mil. it was pretty well written so i think it's a good estimate.

now he can't work at all so he might have gotten a lot more after hockey or if hockey didn't work for him. add all the stuff that's going through so i think that's pretty fair money.

if bert has to pay most of it, he doesn't have much left, i think.

The fact that he has the ability to pay is the travesty. He should have been banned for life.

I am glad Steve is getting some money out of it, he deserves it. And to all of the thugs supporters, they can all go pound sand.

Not at all, you have a natural curiosity and you want to know how a guy on your team was affected is being compensated. Also you want to hope Bertuzzi got cleaned out.

Or maybe that's me.

I think there's a lot you could say about all of this that's probably been said in umpteen Bertuzzi/Moore threads before, but I'm glad Moore has finally got something, and I hope it's enough for him to lead the rest of his life as comfortably as possible.

I have always been of the opinion that Bertuzzi should have been subject to significant wage garnishment for the remainder of his career; this effectively handles that, should the reported numbers be correct. No one can give the game back to Moore, but this certainly settles the financial aspect, IMO.

10 years after the incident, I despise Crawford more than Bertuzzi because he allowed it to happen. He (and Naslund) could have doused the flames easily before it culminated in a career ending injury for Moore and a tarnished career for Bertuzzi. Two lives are derailed because one man couldn't control his locker room.

I wouldn't be surprised of the NHL kicked in some money, they wouldn't have wanted this to go to courts. So I think they sweetened the pot to try and get this to go away quietly. How ironic that it gets settled basically as the thug's career is over.

I do agree Crawford and Nasland share a lot of the blame as well. Nasland just couldn't handle getting lit up because he put himself in a bad position. I despised Nasland as much as his teammate who deserved a lifetime suspension.

Yeah, I was hoping for the Canucks to get bankrupted too.

I don't get that article, why would Moore have any pressure to settle?

Did Bertuzzi and the NHL really just announce it was a done deal, and everyone was happy, when in fact it wasn't a done deal yet and both sides weren't happy? Was wondering why there were no quotes from Moore or his lawyer in that story.

Way to go NHL and TSN for doing your homework.

Public pressure to just sign and get it over with. The same reason rumors of deals being done with players get leaked out before they're finished.

They're trying to paint Moore as the bad guy...AGAIN! It's pretty ****ing pathetic.

I think the idea is that there's pressure from the Bertuzzi camp, and maybe others, to settle before the case goes to trial. I believe the trial date is coming up shortly.

Would think it hurts Bertuzzi/NHL a lot more to go to trial than Moore. They don't want the publicity and details to come out.

NHL has the most to lose if those goes to a trial. well the bad publicity applies to bert too but he's already lost no matter what. he might even 'win' in a trial if say moore isn't budging on 30 mil (not saying he doesn't deserve t ask that).


but burke/craw/nucks/NHL have a lot, lot to lose. they said on TSN that it would take around 4 months to go through all evidence. that's not something NHL wants and some is pretty serious ****, i guess.

And that's precisely why there's pressure from the Bertuzzi camp and the NHL to have Moore settle prior to the trial.

The more I think about it the more I find it hard to believe the NHL and guys with the legal expertise of Daily and Bettman wouldn't have confirmed that the settlement was indeed finalized before commentating.

Kind of stinks to high heaven that they would take part in trying to put pressure on the Moore camp. Probably due to their potentially involvement, as well as repercussions for the numerous concussion suits they're facing.

I find it absolutely disgusting how many parties have drug Moore through the mud for their own self interests since the incident occurred. He's made a handful of comments in ten years and basically disappeared to keep from dramatizing this, while he's been unable to live a normal life for a long time, or get a job based on his degree, and everyone has painted him as this greedy drama queen in order to limit their legal liability or maintain team success.

It really puts a spotlight for me on the more appalling side of human nature.

Really? Because Bettman approved a team sale to a man who had no money to his name. He took control of the team and everything for months before the NHL figured out he was a complete fraud with maybe 20.000 dollars to his name.

Never assume the NHL isn't a bunch of monkeys
