Throughout this matter, the Canucks and their counsel have refrained from public comment, preferring to have this matter dealt with in the courts. The Canucks organization feels compelled at this time to respond to some of the inaccuracies in the media stories relating to court documents and the allegations made in the proposed Claim.
- Contrary to impressions made by some reports these allegations are not yet formally before a court and will require a court order before they are permitted to be made. The Ontario Superior Court will be considering whether to allow these amendments on January 21, 2008.
- We believe that many of the proposed allegations now being advanced on behalf of Mr. Moore against the Vancouver Canucks are inaccurate or speculative. The Vancouver Canucks believe they are intended to inflame the public and create further media interest in the case.

A St. Louis County jury has awarded US$9.5 million in a wrongful-death lawsuit involving former NHL player Rob Ramage, whose drunk-driving accident in Ontario in 2003 resulted in the death of former Chicago Blackhawks star Keith Magnuson.
Magnuson’s wife and two children filed the suit against Ramage and National Car Rentals of Canada. The jury deliberated about two hours.
