Statement released from the Av's

From ColoradoAvalanche.com

Steve Moore Suffers Concussion, Lacerations, and Neck Fracture
(3/9/2004)

The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club and its team doctors, along with the local neurosurgeons in Vancouver, British Columbia, is releasing the following report regarding the condition of Steve Moore.

“Steve Moore will remain hospitalized in Vancouver for an indefinite period of time,” said Avalanche Head Athletic Trainer Pat Karns. “Exams have revealed that Steve sustained a concussion and a cervical injury (neck fracture) and will be out at least for the remainder of the season. He also suffered deep facial lacerations and abrasions to the forehead, right cheek and upper lip. As soon as his condition permits him to travel, he will be transferred to Craig Hospital in Denver, where some of the best neurosurgeons in the country will reevaluate his condition in further detail. Steve regained consciousness before leaving the arena last night.”

Said Colorado Avalanche President and General Manager Pierre Lacroix: “Steve knows he has the support of the entire Avalanche family and hockey fans throughout the world, and we hope that he recovers as soon as possible.”

Good to see Lacroix display some class. I can't say the same for the soon unemployed brian burke.

I'm listening to PL press conference about this situation, and he indicated that no one from the Vancouver Canucks has called him or Steve Moore to express remorse. He did say that his office in Denver told him that Todd Bertuzzi's agent called and left a message, but that's it.

If these two teams were to meet in the playoffs, all hell could break loose it seems...

If they meet, the Av's will crush them. With the additions that Colorado has made, plus getting Forsberg back, and with Vancouver doing nothing at the deadline, plus losing Bertuzzi (with the latest developments I think he's done for the rest of the year including playoffs) Vancouver will be hard pressed to win a series in the playoffs, IMO.
