In no way do I absolve Dennis Wideman. He is an idiot and deserved to be punished...

Here is the video

I don't claim to be an expert in bodily injury but Don Henderson and his ambulance chasers...excuse me.....legal team clearly see opportunity.

In comparison here's a video of refs getting taken out in far worse ways that are not so intentional:

So is the NHL backing the ref, in the hope this case proves Wideman wasn't concussed and maybe can be used as precedent in future concussion cases?

I know the NHL are not the plaintiff here, but if they're going to help the plaintiff, they'd better be VERY careful about how they push a concussion in a lawsuit's body of evidence. That could come back to bite them, big time!

And I agree the $10.25 million is beyond ridiculous.
