SINDEN SAYS NHL SHOULD GET COVERAGE PLEDGE BEFORE SALT LAKE

          Bruins President Harry Sinden "thinks the NHL should
     get a commitment from the Olympics and NBC to show the big
     hockey games -- US-Canada; Canada-Russia; US-Russia -- in
     prime time without interruption before guaranteeing NHL
     players would play in Salt Lake City four years from now"
     (Will McDonough, BOSTON GLOBE, 2/28).  Fox's Dave Maloney,
     on the NHL's Olympic participation: "This was a wonderfully
     contested tournament, games were close, there were
     spectacular stories.  Let's move on, folks.  Do it again." 
     In a Fox/TMG poll conducted last week, 64% said NHL players
     should participate in the 2002 Winter Games, 19% were
     opposed and 17% were undecided ("Fox NHL Saturday," 2/28).
          WHAT ABOUT BOB? In N.Y., Larry Brooks wrote that while
     NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman "has been crystal clear in
     addressing the issue" of the NHL's investigation into Team
     USA's vandalism at the Olympic Village, NHLPA Exec Dir Bob
     Goodenow "has been conspicuously silent."  Brooks questioned
     why Goodenow hasn't issued a statement "urging the guilty to
     cooperate and come forward."  Brooks: "We don't understand a
     Players' Association that from appearances seems more
     concerned with protecting the rights of the minority than of
     the majority" (Larry Brooks, N.Y. POST, 3/1).
