Last week, each time Detroit's Todd Bertuzzi touched the puck in the Red Wings' victory over the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center, the boos were noticeable. Although the Avalanche roster has had a nearly complete turnover since March 8, 2004, many of the Colorado fans still remember Bertuzzi's attack that night on Avalanche center Steve Moore in Vancouver, British Columbia — and ever since have held it against the well-traveled veteran winger. On Friday, Moore's Toronto-based attorney, Tim Danson, noted the irony in the fact that the latest scheduled trial date of Moore's $38 million lawsuit against Bertuzzi and the Vancouver Canucks is more than 10 years after the fateful game in the Pacific Coliseum. In December 2004, Bertuzzi pleaded guilty in criminal court in Vancouver to assault causing bodily harm and received a conditional discharge. He was ordered to perform 80 hours of community service. The scheduled date for the often-delayed case now is Sept. 8, 2014, and three months have been set aside for the jury trial in the Superior Court of Justice in Toronto. The complications and maneuvering in the case have been many, leading to the multiple delays. One outgrowth of an agreement among the defendants about proportion of liability and dropping of cross-claims is that former Canucks (and Avalanche) coach Marc Crawford is not officially a defendant.
