ZACH PARISE stood outside a nondescript office building in suburban Toronto on Monday and made an important announcement, with the entire hockey world — general managers, fans and fellow free agents alike — hanging on every word. Except, Parise's announcement wasn't much of an announcement at all. He needs more time to decide his future. Nearly everyone in said hockey world collectively grumbled. Parise's decision is the domino holding up nearly every other marginal free agent from signing.

The first time Wayne Gretzky was traded, back in 1988, the hockey world wobbled on its axis. Now, at least according to ESPN, Gretzky is being traded again, from the Los Angeles Kings to the St. Louis Blues, once a few details are worked out. This time, at least in the Flyers' corner of the hockey world, the reaction is relief. Relief that the Gretzky drama, which has been in the headlines for nearly two months now, might finally be over. And relief that the whole business apparently will have no affect on the Flyers, who have finished their season series with St. Louis and can't play the Blues in the playoffs unless both teams make the Stanley Cup final.

The Flyers were well aware the eyes of the hockey world were focused just a few miles east of their game against the New Jersey Devils. As the Flyers prepared to bus through the rain from a North Jersey hotel to the Continental Airlines Arena yesterday afternoon, Wayne Gretzky was announcing his retirement at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. Steve Duchesne is the only Flyer to play with Gretzky in the NHL. They were teammates in Los Angeles for four seasons - 1988-89 through '91-92.

When the Montreal Canadiens turned the page on their first century earlier this season, Ken Dryden invited current members of the storied team to write their own history. "And why not make it great?" the Hall of Fame goalie suggested on the occasion of the Canadiens' 100th anniversary game against Boston on Dec. 4. Looks like the 2009-10 team took Dryden's advice to heart. Montreal has stunned the hockey world by reaching the Eastern Conference final for the first time in 17 years.

The American and German coaches have flicked verbal jabs at each other. The Canadians are on edge, their legendary leader whining that the whole hockey world is out to get them. The Finns are claiming that they are being overlooked. The Swedes are quietly kicking backsides and taking names, showing everyone how to play big-rink hockey. If you thought this Olympic men's tournament was just going to be a fun little mid-winter respite from the clutch-and-grap rigors of the NHL, a good-will spin around the rink for the old homeland, think again.

ATLANTA - Danny Briere continues to show the hockey world he was the best forward not selected for the All-Star Game. Briere scored with 7 minutes, 12 seconds remaining Friday night, sparking the Flyers to a 5-2 win over Atlanta at the sparsely filled Philips Arena. With the score tied, 2-2, Scott Hartnell's drive was tipped by Ville Leino to Briere, who was a few feet to his right. Goalie Ondrej Pavelec had to defend against Leino, so Briere was able to knock the puck into the empty net for his 24th goal - tied for fifth in the NHL. "I knew we were there alone, and I was just trying to stop the puck, and it worked out perfectly and went right to Danny," Leino said.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman says fighting is part of hockey and believes some people have been "running off a little too fast on this topic. " "My view on fighting hasn't changed," Bettman told the Canadian Press yesterday. "We've never taken active steps or considered eliminating fighting from the game. "I've always taken the view that it's a part of the game and it rises and lowers based on what the game dictates. " While Bettman seemed OK with the game's current stand on fighting, he's concerned about the larger safety issues.

Louis John Sutter, who watched six sons play in the NHL including two with the Flyers, died yesterday following a lengthy illness. He was 73. Twins Ron and Rich Sutter played for the Flyers - Ron from 1982 to '91 and Rich from 1983 to '86. Ron, a center, was the team's first-round draft pick in 1982, the fourth player selected overall. Ron was the Flyers' captain from 1989 to '91. Rich played right wing, often on his brother's line. "All of Alberta and the hockey world understand the impact that Mr. Sutter and his family have had on our game and in our communities," said Ken King, the president of the Flames, who are managed and coached by Darryl Sutter.

Second of two parts BOISBRIAND, Quebec - In NHL scouting circles, one of the phrases often kicked around is that an up-and-coming player needs to "find his chair. " The figure of speech originates from chairs in an orchestra, where key members are sprinkled around the room in different roles, ultimately working in unison to produce a harmony. In the hockey world, players sit in different chairs within an organization, expected to fulfill different roles in order to help the team win. Samuel Morin, the Flyers' intimidating first-round pick selected 11th overall last summer at the age of 17, is searching for his chair.

AFTER ESCORTING Bill Barber and Brian Propp to the 1982 NHL All-Star Game, Flyers director of team services Joe Kadlec returned to the historic Mayflower Hotel in Washington and stopped at the bar for a drink. When Kadlec arrived at the lounge, he saw not one but two familiar faces singing on stage near the piano. The first one, singer and actress Gloria Loring - married to Alan Thicke at the time - was easily recognizable. The second one, his boss and Flyers general manager Keith Allen, was a little more surprising.

WHEN THE PUCK last dropped on a shortened season, on Jan. 21, 1995, at the Spectrum against the Quebec Nordiques, the 103-day NHL lockout ended up serving the Flyers well. During that 48-game season, the Flyers (28-16-4) won the Atlantic Division by a healthy eight-point margin over New Jersey and Washington. They advanced to the Eastern Conference finals (after not making the playoffs for five straight seasons) before bowing out to the Devils, who eventually swept Detroit for the Stanley Cup. There are a lot of comparisons that could be drawn from that 1995 team, given that we're likely to see a similar format and number of scheduled games, and that both versions of the Flyers featured MVP-caliber players ready for blastoff in Eric Lindros and Claude Giroux.

THE FINAL electronic undressing of Flyers coach Peter Laviolette occurred in the hallway outside the home manager's office in Citizens Bank Park. One HBO technician began removing some kind of transmitter gizmo from its designated hiding place, presumably on Laviolette's belt. Then another guy came for the microphone, tangled a little in his clothing, that had recorded the coach's every word - three letters, four letters, more letters. Laviolette shared a laugh with them, then made sure to shake the hand of one of the camera guys lurking there outside of the rooms that Phillies manager Charlie Manuel and his coaches usually inhabit.

AFTER THE Flyers finished the 2006-2007 season with just 22 victories, many of us took a look at the free-agent pool and made our lists. Scott Gomez was a goal-scorer, a sizable body, a Stanley Cup winner for the Devils. Chris Drury? Who wouldn't want an Olympian, a Stanley Cup champion with Colorado, the heart and soul of an upstart Buffalo Sabres squad that reached the Eastern Conference finals that year? And then there was little Danny Briere, one of the stars in that Sabres run. Too small, wouldn't hold up for any lengthy contract, many said.

Based on my exploding e-mail inbox, there are numerous theories as to why the Flyers faded down the stretch. Some of them: They missed Chris Pronger's leadership, on and off the ice. After Pronger broke his right hand last month, the Flyers won just five of their next 15 games heading into Saturday night. Acquiring Kris Versteeg disrupted the team's chemistry. Entering Saturday, the Flyers had won just 10 of 26 games (10-9-7) after getting Versteeg from Toronto in February.
