JEREMY ROENICK once kissed a teammate. During a game. That doesn't mean he understands goaltenders completely. But it probably explains why he felt empowered to seek out Ilya Bryzgalov during the Winter Classic and offer words of encouragement. "It's a very tough position," Roenick was saying over the phone yesterday. "And when you get a contract like he got in a city like Philadelphia, where the expectations are immense, it's very easy to feel the pressure. " What is hard to figure out is if that is what's going on here.

Two big cities, known more for grit than for glamour, with long histories of ethnic voting and machine-style politics. Two of a bare handful of U.S. markets where the NHL enjoys strong roots and proud tradition. "Similar? Oh, my God, they're almost identical," Jeremy Roenick, never one to equivocate, said yesterday as he ordered lunch in Pasadena, Calif., before flying to Chicago. Roenick, who starred for both the Blackhawks and the Flyers during his eventful 18-year NHL career, will analyze the Cup finals for NBC, starting tonight.

HERE ARE A FEW words to live by from former Flyers forward Jeremy Roenick: "Don't drink and you won't stink. " Actually, Roenick didn't say those exact words, but that was his sentiment when he told the Associated Press that refraining from alcohol has given him a new lease on life and more energy to torment defenders. Now playing for San Jose, Roenick led the Sharks past Calgary on Tuesday night with a four-point performance (two goals), the NHL's highest-scoring effort in a Game 7 playoff since "The Great One" did it with the Kings in 1993.

He made one trip to the Stanley Cup finals, in 1992, when the Chicago Blackhawks were swept by Mario Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins in four games.

Jeremy Roenick was standing at the far end of the bar on Saturday night dressed in a cream-colored designer suit. A procession of adoring fans rubbed elbows to greet him as he sipped club soda. "We're doing a booming business," Roenick said about the Muze Lounge, a nightspot that opened last month, which he co-owns with restaurateur Bill Deacon. "We're going to open up in New York City soon. We've got to get back there and scout a location above 56th Street. " The former Blackhawk, Flyer and King is in the twilight of his career.

Coyotes coach Wayne Gretzky benched Jeremy Roenick for last night's home game against Columbus, but said he and the Phoenix forward worked out their issues at a meeting earlier in the day. The punishment was handed down because Roenick left the arena in Vancouver on Tuesday before the Coyotes played the Canucks. Roenick was scratched from the lineup because of a back injury and later said he watched part of the game while having dinner in a restaurant. Roenick was upset, because he felt he was healthy enough to play.

Jeremy Roenick is nothing if not candid. Even when it comes to criticizing himself. Before the Los Angeles Kings left for an important four-game road trip yesterday, Roenick publicly said what others have been whispering for weeks: that he's playing some of the worst hockey of his NHL career. "I haven't felt comfortable on the ice since Day 1," Roenick said. "Is my game where it was 3 years ago, or 2 years ago? No. Will it be? You know, I really don't know. " Roenick is a future Hall of Famer, but he is in his 18th season and turns 36 next month.

After sleeping on it for a night, Los Angeles Kings general manager Dave Taylor phoned Bob Clarke yesterday at 5:30 a.m. Pacific time, as he got on a freeway. "We want to make a deal for J.R.," Taylor told the Flyers' GM. "I'm on my way to the office, and as soon as I get there, I'll call back. " A few hours later, Jeremy Roenick was an ex-Flyer. Among coach Ken Hitchcock's players, none wore the orange and black with as much enthusiasm, bombast, egotism, and on-ice courage as Roenick.

In an agreement worked out with the Flyers, center Jeremy Roenick will be paid between $1.09 million and $1.5 million as an injured player for games he would have missed in October and November because of postconcussion syndrome, according to an NHL source. Roenick was to receive $7.5 million this season. The deal, the source said, will pay him six to eight weeks' worth of salary for the time the club believes he would still have been out injured had there not been a lockout. Roenick underwent testing in Montreal in October and in Philadelphia last month.
