When Montreal Canadiens centre Maxim Lapierre butt-ended Pittsburgh Penguins young star Sidney Crosby on Thursday, I know the comeback if anybody had tried that on former Edmonton Oilers superstar Wayne Gretzky when he was 19.

Enforcer Dave Semenko would have had one leg over the boards. I seem to recall defenceman Lee Fogolin skating over to tell the centre taking the draw with 99 in Detroit in 1979-80 that if anything happened to Gretzky, he would cut the eyes out of the said centre's head, so pass the word along.

- The NHL may place TV monitors in the timekeeper's bench next season so the referees can look at instant replays rather than get on the phone to decide what constitutes a goal.
