Kukla's Korner Hockey

Rob Ray, his back to the rink, craned his neck at the JumboTron before Wednesday night's preseason game between his former teams, the Buffalo Sabres and Ottawa Senators. He had heard his name mentioned during the replay of a 1993 Sabres-Senators game and turned around in time to see a young version of himself pulverize Darcy Loewen into the glass. "I was pretty good then," he cracked. Ray's playing days are done now - officially. The Sabres' all-time tough guy deposited a $70,000 check that settled his lawsuit with the NHL Players Association. He sued the union after it informed him in November he had been classified as retired even though he hadn't filed the required paperwork. The union's stance denied him the $5,000 and $10,000 monthly lockout stipends paid to other players.
