Drop egos and drop puck Harvey Fialkov Sun Sentinel Absolutely. It's no secret that NHL Players' Association chief Donald Fehr plays hardball. Ask baseball fans about the cancellation of the 1994 World Series. This is the third work stoppage under the condescending guidance of NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, including the entire 2004-05 season. Let Fehr's brother, Steve, and deputy commissioner Bill Daly iron out any contractual issues. The billionaire owners should absorb the lockout costs because they turned the key. There's time to salvage the season.

WASHINGTON - The cancellation of the NHL season was an action that Washington Capitals majority owner Ted Leonsis had long planned for, while hoping it would never happen. Yesterday, when a salary cap dispute indeed ended the season before it began, Leonsis reacted with a combination of frustration and relief. The frustration is probably easier for the team's fans to understand. Like many of them, Leonsis said he was left with "an empty feeling" by the failure of the league and its players union to reach a deal that could have put the Capitals back on the MCI Center ice. But Leonsis has a concern that fans need not worry about: the bottom line.

The speculation and apocrypha surrounding "cover curses" in sports go back at least as far as the " Sports Illustrated cover jinx . " In the age of video games, the " Madden Curse " has taken up the mantle as the most hotly-debated superstition in sports marketing. Close behind "Madden" in the curse department is "NHL," which has had rumblings about a curse since the late 1990s. Sports Illustrated themselves even devoted a gallery to it . It's important to note that "curses" are empirically bunk, especially in sports.

Could he score his age?At least one center is upset about the way the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team was selected. And can you blame the guy? Look at his credentials: He once averaged 50 points for a season, scored 100 in a single game, led the NBA in scoring, rebounds and assists during his career.You may have heard of him -- Wilt Chamberlain. So what if he's 55?"Who gave them the right to say that Wilt Chamberlain can't try out for the team if he wants to?" Chamberlain said. "It's ridiculous.

Don't jump to any conclusions, the NHL season is not about to start.But, yes, there were 13 Washington Capitals on the ice playing hockey yesterday morning at the Piney Orchard Ice Rink in Odenton.But they paid for their own ice time. They wore name-less jerseys. They skated at less than half speed. There were no coaches in sight.And the NHL lockout continued into its 20th day."We're not here because we're hopeful of anything happening soon," said Washington defenseman Calle Johansson. "The two sides aren't even talking.

Poor ice conditions at 1st Mariner Arena put a damper on the inaugural Baltimore Hockey Classic, the city's first pro ice hockey game in 14 years.

Devil of a situation Helene Elliott Los Angeles Times The Devils' poor start after they threw $100 million at winger Ilya Kovalchuk is the biggest stunner so far this season — and a source of great amusement to rival general managers who foresaw the salary-cap problems general manager Lou Lamoriello would have after such an extravagant signing. The Devils can't score, goaltender Martin Brodeur has suddenly aged about a decade and coach John MacLean could win the first-coach-fired pool if he doesn't win some games soon.

There are pros to idea Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun I used to be totally against this because I thought the Olympics should be for amateurs. But who are we kidding? Many of the Olympic "amateurs" make more in a year than you and I will make in our lifetimes. So now I'm all for NHL players, and for that matter, NBA players, representing their countries in the Olympics. I want to see the best players from each country playing against the best. And in the case of the NHL, whose season goes on in almost anonymity, any exposure gained by having your elite athletes playing on center stage in the Olympics can only help more people find the sport.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Yesterday was Groundhog Day in the NHL, and in a facsimile of Wednesday, there was no progress to report and the 2004-05 season remained ... canceled. Proving untrue the old adage, "Any PR is good PR," the NHL and its players association looked foolish yesterday when one day after it appeared there would be an unexpected "un-canceling" of the season, even the Great One and Super Mario weren't enough to bridge the gap toward a new collective bargaining agreement.
