Until they changed the definition of interference for him.
Yeah, if you look at the initial stages of that, it wasn't going to be any worse than a lot of what we see lately.
There was just way too much lead-up and it was a bomb waiting to go off and it did after Bert knocked him to the ice from behind. I don't think he was injured at that point.
Lots of people to blame but I've been saying ever since it happened, (never here), that a big part of it was Naslund's fault. He gave that perfectly politically correct interview after the game in Denver when Moore gave him a cheap shot.
If only he'd vented and said he was mad and that it was a cheap shot and blamed Moore, Granato and the ref. Even if it meant a warning from the league.
But that wasn't his way, too laid back.
Very few have ever agreed with me on that.
