  • Selanne Says Team Was Ready To Call Game

    TORONTO -- Colorado forward Teemu Selanne says he and his teammates considered leaving the ice following Todd Bertuzzi's hit on Steve Moore earlier this month in Vancouver.

    "When this thing happened with Bertuzzi, I didn't even want to go on the ice any more," Selanne told the Toronto Sun. "The players were saying the same thing, 'Let's just stop this game right now.'

    "A lot of guys were talking about it, saying, 'Let's just stop this game. It's not a safe place.'"

    Bertuzzi has been suspended for the rest of the season for punching Moore from behind and driving his head into the ice during Colorado's victory. Moore suffered cracked vertebrae in his neck, a concussion and facial lacerations.

    According to Selanne, Avalanche general manager Pierre Lacroix would have backed his team had they decided to call off the game.

    "Pierre Lacroix came to the bench and said to the referees, 'Stop the game right now. I just talked with the league.' But the referees obviously couldn't do it."

        Worrell was sure fired up it looked like.

        What happens if a game was stopped? Is it legal after a certain time like a baseball game?

          I'm sure the choices would be:

          1) Resume game @ a later date...
          2) Forfeit the outcome...

              that's pretty harsh

              You are afraid for your teammate and perhaps for his life...I don't blame them for not wanting to play.
