Islanders send Lachance to Habs

The Islanders confused everyone once again when they traded defenseman Scott Lachance to the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday for a third-round pick in the 1999 entry draft. Lachance, who was chosen fourth overall in the 1991 entry draft, played all 450 of his NHL games on Long Island and had 26 goals, 79 assists and 348 penalty minutes. I think Lachance summed it up best when he said, "I'm a little confused and a little shocked... a third rounder won't help (the Islanders) for four, five years."

Pens ex-owner may owe $45 million

A former owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins could owe the bankrupt team's banks $45 million, according to documents filed in bankruptcy court. Lawyers for current Penguins co-owner Roger Marino said the documents indicate that former co-owner Morris Belzberg guaranteed loans that banks made to the team. Belzberg is one of the original partners of Penguins co-owner Howard Baldwin and retains a stake in the team.

Two-ref system to be used in playoffs

The NHL likes the two-referee system so much that Tuesday it decided to employ it throughout the upcoming Stanley Cup playoffs. "The general managers and governors of our clubs were overwhelmingly in support of the two-referee system for use in the playoffs," NHL senior vice president and director of hockey operations Colin Campbell said. "When the system was phased in during the regular season, the games had a quicker pace, interference was reduced and improper conduct behind the play was controlled."
