swahnhennessy: I refuse to believe this is legit. The Howe mix-up, the Regehr misspelling, the (mistaken) reference to a movie in order to make a non-point about fictional Nordic Germanic just reads like a bad troll.

Not to mention some of the Plaintiffs were antagonists in the behavior the suit is outlining against the NHL.  IIRC, that Regehr incident was entirely instigated by the "aggrieved" party, yet, FTFA:

"Meanwhile, LaCouture was, has been and will continue to be damaged as a result of the NHL's misconduct further described herein"

How is the NHL responsible for a numb-skulled instigator getting the beat-down when he picks a fight?  Regehr's a tough blue-liner, but that's it.  I've seen him play for years, not just during his time with my hometown Sabres.  I don't recall Regehr EVER insitgating trouble.  Also, LaCouture went on to play at the professional level for 7 more seasons, retiring for good in 2011.  I can't take a whole lot from a guy telling me his life changed for the worse in 2004 because of hockey, yet he continued to play hockey until 2011.
