It started out as the kind of day any typical high school senior dreads. On Wednesday morning, Kerry Huffman smashed up his new Mustang on his way to Guelph Centennial High School in Ontario. Later, as he was sitting in a math class, he was summoned to the principal's office. "He told me to go down to the office down in the (Guelph) arena," Huffman recalled of his meeting with the principal. However, this wasn't the case of a high school senior's getting caught for mischief.

The Flyers yesterday reacquired defenseman Mike Stothers from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for defenseman Bill Root. Stothers, 26, who went into last season as a serious candidate for a backline spot that eventually was won by rookie Kerry Huffman, was dealt to the Maple Leafs by the Flyers in December in exchange for Toronto's fifth- round pick in the 1989 entry draft. In three games with the Flyers last season, Stothers had no points and 13 penalty minutes. For Toronto, he had one assist and 42 penalty minutes in 18 games.

Early in his career, when he was a promising young defenseman known for his goal-scoring touch, Gordie Roberts was nicknamed "Franny," which was short for "Franchise. " That, however, was one decade and three teams ago. The 30-year-old defenseman the Flyers acquired yesterday from Minnesota for a fourth-round draft pick has one goal and 10 assists in 48 games this season. In Minnesota, he wasn't exactly the kind of fresh new face first-year coach Herb Brooks was looking to rebuild with.

The Flyers play their first road game of the season tonight, against the Hartford Whalers at the Civic Center, but defenseman Ric Nattress won't be there. The 31-year-old Nattress announced his retirement from hockey yesterday after 11 seasons. "I don't think they had plans for me, plus enough was enough," said Nattress, who missed 40 games last season with a sore left knee and bad back. "My knee wouldn't allow me to work much on my conditioning, and if you don't have conditioning, you don't have anything.

In an effort to shore up their defense, weakened with the defection of Mark Howe to the Detroit Red Wings and the trade of Steve Duchesne and Kerry Huffman to Quebec as part of the Eric Lindros package, the Flyers announced the signing of Russian defenseman Dimitri Yushkevich to a contract. In yesterday's press conference at a South Philadelphia restaurant to preview the opening of training camp in the small Canadian province of Prince Edward Island Saturday, general manager Russ Farwell said there is "still some small question over who owns his foreign rights.

This weekend sports fans get their last chance to see a legend on wheels - and get their first look at a rising young star on ice. On Saturday, Flyers fans will get their first glance at highly touted rookie center Eric Lindros, when the team takes the Spectrum ice for a 1 p.m. National Hockey League exhibition game against the Quebec Nordiques. Lindros is considered by many in the sport to be its next superstar. The Nordiques drafted Lindros but couldn't sign him; they traded him to the Flyers in the off season.

For the Flyers, the Rangers, the Nordiques and Eric Lindros, the wait is just about over. An arbitrator named Larry Bertuzzi, who's got their whole world in his hands, will let go today. At 11 a.m., in a conference call from Toronto, Bertuzzi will announce how he has reconciled the dispute that will decide Lindros's professional address for the next several years. But the last day, like the nine days that preceded it, was filled with intrigue. Let's start with USAir. According to the airline, Lindros was booked on an early-morning flight from Toronto to Philadelphia.

The National Hockey League's ludicrous first-round playoff schedule - in which teams play four games in five nights - will not return next season. Starting with next spring's playoffs, the NHL will stagger the first-round games, with the Wales Conference and Campbell Conference alternating dates. Thus, teams will avoid the hardship of the current schedule, which has existed since the first round went to a best-of-seven format during the 1986-87 season. The major reason for the change is to ensure that games will be available for television every night.

Revisionist history says the Flyers should have kept center Peter Forsberg instead of sending him and a mega-package - forwards Mike Ricci and Chris Simon, defensemen Kerry Huffman and Steve Duchesne, goalie Ron Hextall, 1993 and 1994 first-round draft picks, and $15 million - to Quebec for Eric Lindros in 1992. Forsberg, the Flyers' No. 1 draft pick in 1991, had a brilliant NHL career (885 points in 708 games), won two Stanley Cups with Colorado, and went into Hockey's Hall of Fame last month.

AND NOW, the end is near. And so, Eric Lindros will face the final curtain - the one covering a bust of his head, of all body parts - tonight at center ice as he is inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame with linemate John LeClair. Before he laughs, shakes hands and offers a few brief words for an adoring and forgiving 19,537 faithful, it would only be fitting if Lindros stepped onto the ice with Frank Sinatra's recording of "My Way" pouring out of the Wells Fargo Center sound system.

MY 13 YEARS of covering the Flyers started with the 1989-90 season, just in time for 5 years in a row of not making the playoffs, a drought that the largely successful franchise hadn't experienced before or since. The thing is, in 1989-90, nobody saw it coming. The Flyers had been to the 1989 conference finals. Two years before that, they'd lost a seven-game Stanley Cup final to maybe the most talented group ever assembled, the mid-dynasty Edmonton Oilers. They had a young Vezina Trophy-winning goalie in Ron Hextall, established stars such as Mark Howe and Tim Kerr, a dynamic force in Rick Tocchet coming into his prime.

Overshadowed by their season-high five-goal outburst Saturday was the fact that the Flyers' defense - particularly Kimmo Timonen - protected goalie Brian Boucher like he was a newborn infant. In their 5-2 win over Toronto, the Flyers blocked a season-high 18 shots and allowed a season-low 14 shots on goal. Timonen, who iced his ankle after the game, had eight blocks, including five in the first period. The last two defensive efforts - the Flyers allowed just 22 shots in a frustrating 3-2 loss to Anaheim on Thursday - were what general manager Paul Holmgren had in mind when he added Andrej Meszaros and Sean O'Donnell to an already-quality blue line group in the off-season.

At some point, New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather will be able to sit back and assess the impact of giving up three young players for Eric Lindros. That's a lot like what the Flyers did in 1992, when they gave up Peter Forsberg, Mike Ricci, Kerry Huffman, Steve Duchesne, Ron Hextall, future considerations (Chris Simon), and two first-round picks plus $15 million to get the rights to Lindros from the Quebec Nordiques. "I know there has been a lot of criticism about us giving up some young players, but I can't remember a deal like this where you get an Eric Lindros without giving something up," Sather said yesterday afternoon at Madison Square Garden's Theatre, where Lindros was formally introduced as a Ranger.

Mikael Renberg, a second-round pick in 1990, was the highest-drafted player among the Flyers' own picks on last season's final roster. "That sort of surprises me," said Renberg, who himself was traded before being reacquired last season. But, he acknowledged, "there are a lot of trades around the league. " When it comes to making deals, the Flyers have been active. Shifts in upper management as general manager Bob Clarke left the team for five years between 1989 and 1994 and changes in philosophy have played a role.

It was a joke, but it had an edge to it. Injuries left the Flyers short a few forwards during a practice early last week. As usual, they had a surplus of defensemen. So defenseman Chris Joseph, scratched from the lineup every game since Oct. 9, except for the two-week conditioning stint he spent with the Phantoms in December, was told he would skate on a forward line. Joseph, 28, entered this season with 403 NHL games under his belt, all of them as a defenseman. He is not a forward.

His was the tale of two seasons. Eric Desjardins posted a career-high 47 points for the Flyers last year, tops among the club's defensemen. And that offense didn't come at the expense of his defensive play. Desjardins was awarded the club's Barry Ashbee Trophy as the Flyers' top blue-liner for the second straight year. Then the playoffs came, and Desjardins' game, like that of so many other Flyers, seemed to desert him. He went scoreless in the playoffs, earning a minus-5 rating, his worst postseason performance in eight years.

It's been three weeks since the Flyers were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs, but their influence on the finals is nearly as strong as the two teams playing for the Cup. It was Flyers president and general manager Bob Clarke, then the general manager of the Florida Panthers, who helped Bill Torrey, Roger Neilson and the rest of the Panthers front office build the expansion team in 1993. Former Flyers Scott Mellanby, Gord Murphy and Terry Carkner have become stars for the Panthers in these playoffs.
