TSN’s Westhead: Bertuzzi-Moore settlement reached but not completely concluded

Pardon me for saying this, but this entry should be filed under, "Well, duh," per TSN's Rick Westhead and via RedWingsFeed:

Lawyers for Todd Bertuzzi and Steve Moore are negotiating terms of a confidentiality agreement, a week after Bertuzzi's legal representative said the two sides reached a settlement.

Since lawyer Geoff Adair confirmed a week ago to TSN that a settlement was reached, avoiding a trial that would have been a public relations disaster for the NHL, Moore's lawyer Tim Danson  has declined to comment on  the case, raising questions about whether Adair spoke too soon.

Those concerns appeared to be justified after Mark Moore, Steve's brother, told TSN that there was no final settlement. Neither side has commented since then.

Adair told TSN that terms of a settlement have been reached and that Danson is negotiating over terms of a confidentiality pact. But even if there are any objections, those would be settled by an arbitrator, Adair said.

Westhead continues, and it was rather evident that the case had reached an NHL-NHLPA "memorandum of understanding" agreement of settlement as opposed to a, "The check's in the mail" conclusion.
