QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Hockey is in a unique, and uniquely vulnerable position. The NHL won America's disposable income, but not its heart. Thus, without the full weight of an impassioned U.S. fan and media backlash, it will be hard-pressed to force either management or the players into any kind of meaningful compromise." _ Gary Peterson, columnist, Contra Costa Times (Walnut Creek, Calif.).
