A Littl Bie Of This & That

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

• The Rangers’ Sean Avery won a settlement in his libel case against Toronto radio reporter Howard Berger following mediation earlier this month, Slap Shots has learned. The suit was brought in the aftermath of the pregame incident in Toronto on Nov. 10, 2007, after which Berger alleged that Avery had made comments to Jason Blake relating to the Leaf winger’s previously diagnosed cancer. Terms of the settlement are confidential. Avery has at least one more pending suit relating to the incident.

• The Coyotes, we’re told by an interested party, have received deposits on 1,800 season tickets and full payment on exactly, um well, on exactly none for the coming season. Gary Bettman’s check must be lost in the mail.

• Seems that Calgary’s Dion Phaneuf could have been given a match penalty for intent to injure on his mean, blind-side blow that concussed the Isles’ Kyle Okposo on Wednesday, but neither the league nor PA seems to have a clue how to legislate against technically legal hits to the head, even ones that appear premeditated.
