Saturday Nigh Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- One more Crosby item, unless there’s more: Bobby Hull, Guy Lafleur, Mike Bossy, Bryan Trottier, Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, to name a few, were all targeted by opponents and game-planned for at playoff time. And all of them managed to score when it mattered.

- Dominic Moore at $1 million a year may be the best bargain in hockey, year after year. There are all kinds of NHL players making triple his money who don’t contribute when it matters the way this guy does.

- With five goals in his last 41 playoff games and too many foolish penalties, you can bet the Bruins will be trying to move Brad Marchand.

- The fact Ron Francis hasn’t named Kevin Dineen in Carolina leads some to believe Rangers’ assistant, Ulf Samuelsson, will be the next Hurricanes coach, which would be a mistake.
