The NHL Players Association, a step closer to its first strike, went back to its membership yesterday before deciding its next step. One thing seemed clear: If the players strike, they will do so reluctantly. "I haven't thought about a strike yet," said Wayne Gretzky of the Los Angeles Kings. "We have no idea what's going to happen now. Obviously, it's going to hurt the league image, with the economy the way it is. People won't be thrilled about this. " No new talks were scheduled following Monday's nine-hour session, which left both sides more pessimistic than ever about averting a strike.

THE MUCKETY-MUCKS at Penn State must be cringing. Someone forgot to make sure convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky was taken off the list of fans who receive letters from head football coach James Franklin asking for support. Onwardstate.com said it obtained a copy of the letter from filmmaker John Ziegler, who wrote the book "The Framing of Joe Paterno," and who operates the website FramingPaterno.com. "I got it from someone at the Sandusky home when the letter was received," Ziegler told the Daily News in a email yesterday.

NHL owners and representatives of the players' association met in New York yesterday to try to work out a collective-bargaining agreement that would end the threat of the first players' strike in the 75-year history of the league. When the two sides broke for dinner last night, neither reported any progress and the only point of agreement was that the talks would continue. "It looks like we'll be here a while," said Serve Savard, general manager of the Montreal Canadiens. Yesterday's meeting, the first since Feb. 24, marked the eighth time since June that management and the players had tried to iron out differences.

Former coach Mike McQueary, who testified that he witnessed Jerry Sandusky raping a child in a Pennsylvania State University locker-room shower, might have been unduly influenced by overzealous investigators, Sandusky said in an interview broadcast on Today on Monday. "His story changed a lot," said Sandusky, 69, who is serving a 30- to 60-year jail term for his conviction last year on sexual-abuse charges. "I don't understand how anybody would have walked into that locker room from where he was and heard sounds, associated that was sex going on," he said before pausing to laugh.

A conservative filmmaker has released a preview of a film that criticizes the media for the way they depicted former Penn State coach Joe Paterno in reporting the events that followed the indictment and arrest of Jerry Sandusky on child sexual-abuse charges a year ago. John Ziegler, whose prior productions include a focus on the media treatment of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin when she ran for vice president on the Republican ticket in 2008, said...

"I'm from Detroit, where Henry Ford used to say, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it.' " - John Ziegler, NHL president From John Ziegler's view, the NHL definitely ain't broke. The 21-team league is a stable organization basking in record profits and attendance. Player salaries, by the standards of other sports, are rock bottom. Television money is way up, although, for the time being, almost no one can watch the nationally broadcast games. But the public perception of hockey - outside of its hard-core fans - is not so healthy.

Come on, admit it. The official announcement of John Ziegler's departure is anticlimactic. In fact, you probably thought Ziegler, who has not appeared in public for weeks, had resigned as president of the NHL years ago. More than anything else, Ziegler's failure to be of any value to the league led to his official ouster Thursday. It wasn't that Ziegler purposely tried to hurt the NHL. It was that he didn't do anything for it. He didn't market it. He didn't get it on television.

An Upper Gwynedd Township boy was injured and four of his playmates shaken up yesterday afternoon when lightning struck the homemade wooden fort in which they were playing. The boys, ages 10 to 15, were inside the fort they had just finished building between two tall trees in a lot behind their homes on Bradford Lane when a bolt of lightning struck it about 4:15 p.m., neighbors said. John Ziegler, 14, was flown by helicopter to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and was listed in serious condition last night, a hospital spokeswoman said.

For more than a year, a documentary producer and other supporters of Jerry Sandusky have been building a campaign to discredit his accusers and the investigation that led to his conviction as Pennsylvania's most infamous serial sex abuser of children. The latest step came Wednesday, as Sandusky's wife defended her husband in a nationally broadcast interview. "People need to know that Jerry is not guilty," Dottie Sandusky told NBC's Today . The image of a tearful Dottie Sandusky contrasted sharply with the spouse who testified matter-of-factly at her husband's 2012 trial and who had been described by his victims as aloof and disinterested.

In a jail house interview broadcast on NBC's Today show Monday morning, Jerry Sandusky sought to discredit former coach Mike McQueary's testimony that he saw Sandusky raping a child in a Penn State football locker-room shower in 2002. "I think there's a lot of things that transpired," Sandusky said in the interview. "I think these investigators, the way they went about business, his story changed a lot.

Coaching was more than a job for Bob Plager, more than a business, more than a career. And so much more than he could handle. So on Thursday night, after his St. Louis Blues had handed the haughty Pittsburgh Penguins their first defeat of the season, after his team's triumph, Plager tearfully quit as the head coach. His reasoning sounded so simple, so clear: You can love the game too much. "I don't know if the game has passed me by, but it was different," said Plager, who will resume his job as a Blues vice president and the team's director of player development.

John Ziegler, a man who rarely attended games and gave little indication that he even enjoyed hockey during his 15 years as NHL president, is resigning. He is not, however, giving up cigars. According to two sources within the league, Ziegler will be paid $500,000 a year for four years - honoring the terms of his current contract - and will receive a lifetime pension of $250,000 a year. He will also be reimbursed for any expenses incurred in his new post as consultant to the NHL. The owners will finalize the terms of the settlement this morning.
