CALGARY, Alberta -- Kevin Dineen talked to several teammates before deciding to go through with it.Dineen didn't want to leave. He had taken a pay cut from about $800,000 to $688,000 just to come back to the Philadelphia Flyers this season. In his 12th NHL campaign, he knew he was closer than he'd ever been to winning a Stanley Cup.But by Thursday morning, 37 games into the Flyers' 82-game schedule, Dineen knew it wasn't working out. He had slipped into a marginal role. There was no guarantee he would be on the ice at all in the playoffs, that he would play any part in that Cup victory, if it happened.

This Sunday, you'll probably feel a bit jealous of the svelte figures of Hollywood's first ladies - Cate Blanchett, Annette Bening, Hilary Swank - as they swan along on the Kodak Theatre's red carpet before the 77th Annual Academy Awards. Admit it. Doesn't even the idea of a size 2 make you blue? If so, don't blame California dessert chef and plus-size model Whitney Dineen. She's doing her best to, well, even the scales. "Americans are getting bigger and bigger, but actors are getting skinnier and skinnier.

Maryland's Waiter of the Year finds that excellence lives in the details.Those little forks, for example. Recently crowned Waiter of the Year Dana Dineen of Annapolis always remembers that one of his regulars, lawyer and lobbyist Ira Cooke, uses a salad fork and nothing but a salad fork.This greatly impresses Cooke."His great strength is his anticipation. He knows what people want," said Cooke, who stays at the Loews Annapolis Hotel during the 90-day legislative session and often entertains legislators in the Corinthian restaurant, where Dineen works.

PHILADELPHIA -- The most obvious thing that can be said about Wednesday's deal between the Flyers and the Hartford Whalers is also the truest -- that two guys who needed a change of scenery got one.Just three seasons ago, Kevin Dineen was among the best right wings in the NHL, a feisty 45-goal scorer who started in the All-Star Game for the Wales Conference.But the Whalers didn't win a playoff round that year, or any other year between 1986 and the present. Dineen, Ron Francis and Ulf Samuelsson, the players who formed the Whalers' late-'80s nucleus, took much of the blame for that failing.

PHILADELPHIA -- The whole thing sounds as if it was nightmared up by Bob Irsay during one of his infamous lunch hours.Picture it: You're a man with impressive hockey credentials, but the fact is you haven't been behind the bench coaching in some time. You've been off scouting the minor leagues and the amateurs for the big club and your birth certificate says this is the autumn of your years.Out of the blue, a call comes from the big boss, you're invited to watch the big club play and, afterward you're offered the job to handle a team in the National Hockey League for the first time.

PHILADELPHIA -- Bill Dineen walked into his first pre-game Philadelphia Flyers locker room on Dec. 5, the day after he replaced Paul Holmgren as the team's head coach. The Flyers, on an 0-6-1 skid, were about to take on Washington. Dineen wanted to gauge the mood in the room."Nobody said a word," Dineen recalled recently. "Quietest locker room I've ever been in. Scared the hell out of me."That might be the area in which the Flyers have improved the most in the past four months. Dineen's folksy manner and the emergence of some boisterous, upbeat personalities have helped the Flyers' morale and their record.
