Is it just me, or is the Summer of 2012 chock full of legal proceedings involving NHL figures?
The Nashville Predators are being sued for a failed "Flying Puck" stunt. Now, if you thought being a flying puck was devoid of any injury risk, you are kind of stupid in my opinion, but I digress.
Elsewhere, Bob Murray and colleagues are currently defending themselves against assault charges.
And, finally, it was reported yesterday that Dany Heatley is brining his former agent to court on charges of fraud. Travis Yost at HockeyBuzz takes a detailed look at the case.
I suppose in an offseason focused on CBA talks, all of these legal happenings are befitting.
