Lucky Luc sues Boots

Scratch one more former associate from bankrupt San Jose investor William "Boots'' Del Biaggio's list of buddies. Hockey legend Luc Robitaille sued Del Biaggio for fraud Monday, alleging that the bankrupt investor scammed him in a bank loan that was used partly to finance Del Biaggio's "extravagant lifestyle."
Dan Tolensky has a very thorough look through the various legal documents involved here, and it's pretty messy stuff. Robitaille's essentially owing $2-million due to his business dealings with Del Biaggio and is looking to get off the hook for the loan.

It'll be hard for Del Baggio to regain any type of credibility in the hockey world after being sued by one of hockey's most respected and soft-spoken players. I mean, for Kings fans (and/or Robitaille fans), this is pretty close to if Jean Beliveau sued the Canadian parliament.

Ok, not that serious, but it is a pretty big dent in the credibility car of 'Boots'.

Del Baggio wouldn't have been able to regain his credibility regardless of Robitallie suing him.

Hockey players as investors is disaster waiting to happen. Why didn't Lucky Luc lose money by owning a bar like other players do.

(With apologies to Len Barrie and his Bear Mountain success)

Rats always survive.

The orgy over the 20th anniversary of Gretzky's sale to the Kings included plenty of airtime with his coin-collecting, Argonaut co-owning li'l fat buddy, Bruce McNall.
