Oh no... Damned litigious society...

Grrr... these kind of people really aggravate me. It's hockey. It's a dangerous sport, even as a spectator. Grrr....


Women hurt by game pucks sue Red Wings, NHL

DETROIT (AP) -- Two women who claim disabling injuries from pucks that flew into the stands at Joe Louis Arena filed suit Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings, the arena's owners and the NHL.

The suits were filed in Wayne County Circuit Court, attorney James Elliott said.

Elizabeth Taylor, 52, from the Flint area, and Sandra Quick, 32, of suburban Detroit, would not have been hurt had the team installed nets to stop pucks from entering the stands during games, Elliott said.

Quick was injured at a playoff game between Detroit and the Colorado Avalanche on May 20, 2002. She lost three teeth and had damage to four others, Elliott said.

Taylor was hurt while watching a Central Collegiate Hockey Association game on March 16, 2001. She sustained permanent nerve damage and required plastic surgery, her lawyer said.

The NHL installed nets behind the goals before this season in the aftermath of the death of the spectator hit by a puck last March in Columbus, Ohio.

``We have yet to see any of the lawsuits,'' said Red Wings spokesman John Hahn. ``Our legal counsel will have to review it before we can comment.''
