Absorb what the master says like a sponge. That is how Mike Stothers sees his role as a Flyers assistant coach while Wayne Cashman recovers from back surgery. "I said when I first came up here I would approach this as a sponge and absorb as much knowledge from [coach] Roger Neilson and [assistant coach] Craig Ramsay," Stothers said yesterday. "I'm also listening to the players to learn what to expect from certain guys on other teams and what to watch out for. " Cashman underwent surgery on Feb. 1. Stothers, a Phantoms assistant coach, has been with the Flyers since late January.

For whatever reason, a team that went to the Stanley Cup finals only last spring suddenly is skating gingerly on its home ice, seeming to panic at every turn, and playing as if it were comatose. "When you run into hard times and the puck doesn't go in the net, you try to do too much," theorized winger Trent Klatt. "You're not only trying to do your job, you're covering up for the next guy. "Now you make a mistake and go out the next shift and try to cover up for that mistake.

Bob Clarke didn't want to compare Terry Murray with Wayne Cashman. The Flyers' general manager and president made it clear that he didn't think it would be fair to go over the issues that caused him to fire Murray and hire Cashman and compare one with the other. But throughout the press conference after Cashman was introduced as the team's 11th coach, the same themes kept repeating themselves. Communication. And trust. And respect. And, even though it was never said, it was clear that no matter how many ways there are to explain the Flyers' four-game sweep from the Stanley Cup finals by the Detroit Red Wings, a lack of communication between Murray and his players played a big part in why Cashman was sitting at a podium in the CoreStates Center yesterday afternoon.

He spoke of trust being a two-way street, and said you develop the trust of young players by talking with them. He spoke of respect and the importance of remembering that hockey players are people, too. He said that his staff would contribute to every game plan and that there would be a bond among his players. The new era of Flyers hockey began officially yesterday afternoon when Wayne Cashman was introduced at the CoreStates Center as the successor to coach Terry Murray, who was let go June 13. "Commitment is not something I'm going to ask for" from players, Cashman said.

Holding the pink and yellow BIC Clic firmly in his left hand, Wayne Cashman jabbed his desk calendar repeatedly, each time ruining a new pencil point. "I expect them to show up and work hard every night," the Flyers' coach said yesterday, his face reddening and jaw tightening with each jab. "This is part of the commitment when you put on the sweater. "What really angers me is that we went through this earlier, worked ourselves out of it, and now it happens again. . . . When you have an edge, you have to work to keep it there, because if you lose it, sometimes you don't get it back.

A bizarre ending to a game the Flyers finally won in overtime, 4-3, last night was followed by an even more bizarre postgame news conference centering on the job status of coach Wayne Cashman. Cashman is expected to be replaced as coach today, after the dramatic overtime victory. Former coach Terry Murray was dismissed after taking the team to the Stanley Cup finals. The new coach is expected to be Roger Neilson, an assistant coach in St. Louis. General manager Bob Clarke uncharacteristically refused to meet with reporters after the game, won by Alexandre Daigle 4 minutes, 3 seconds into overtime.

Ted Nolan, Phil Esposito's first choice to take over as coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning, turned down the job yesterday. This leaves the field wide open, apparently. And for what it's worth, when asked by Tampa reporters if he'd like to talk to former Flyers coach Terry Murray, Esposito, the Tampa general manager, said he would. This was news to Murray, who remains keenly interested in NHL coaching openings, but thought Nolan was all set to go to Tampa until reporters began to ring the phone at Murray's South Jersey residence late yesterday.

Flyers general manager Bob Clarke last night confirmed what team chairman Ed Snider seemed to say Wednesday on Comcast SportsNet - the Flyers will make a one-year, $8.5 million qualifying offer to concussion-plagued center Eric Lindros by the July 1 deadline. "I would think that's still our intent," Clarke said. If the Flyers do not make the offer, Lindros is an unrestricted free agent. If they do make the offer, they retain his rights as a restricted free agent, and are able to match any offer he might get elsewhere and keep him. But they run the risk of paying $8.5 million to a player whose six concussions in less than 27 months make him a medical risk and make his contract quite possibly uninsurable.

Former Flyers coach Roger Neilson has been offered a job as assistant general manager and associate head coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Neilson said last night. Neilson, 66, was replaced as Flyers coach earlier this month by former assistant Craig Ramsay, who took the team to the Eastern Conference finals while Neilson was being treated for bone-marrow cancer. Neilson has the option of returning to an unspecified role with the Flyers, but has indicated he would rather be a head coach.

For a few minutes they were all gathered on the landing outside Bob Clarke's second-floor office, which overlooks the lobby of the Flyers' practice facility in Voorhees, N.J. Milling about there at the top of the stairwell yesterday afternoon was a group that included pro scout Terry Murray, assistant coach Wayne Cashman, and the Flyers' brand-new head coach, Roger Neilson. All three are being paid under the terms of Flyers head-coaching contracts, probably worth more than $2 million a year together.

ED SNIDER, Bob Clarke, Paul Holmgren; chairman, former general manager/icon, current general manager. They are very different people. What they share is a heritage. Their greatest desire is not only to win a Stanley Cup but to do it with a team that honors a franchise tradition that is now 4 decades old. They don't say it like that, not exactly. But you hang around people for long enough and you get a sense of their core beliefs. Some of it is caricature but much of it is true.

The slapshot came with full force. But even with his quick reflexes, John Stevens couldn't elude the puck, which was flying at full speed toward his face. In an instant, one part of Stevens' hockey career, his playing days, ended that day during the 1998-99 season. Another, coaching, would soon begin, even if Stevens didn't realize it at the time. Stevens, 38, the fifth-year head coach of the Phantoms, the Flyers' minor-league affiliate, spent most of his playing days in the minors.

Robbie Ftorek was fired yesterday as coach of the Boston Bruins, a team struggling to make the playoffs after a strong start. General manager Mike O'Connell replaces Ftorek on an interim basis. The Bruins had the NHL's best record at 19-4-3-1 on Dec. 8, but slipped to 33-28-8-4 and into seventh place in the Eastern Conference after Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Phoenix. Ftorek was in his second season as Boston's coach. The team also fired assistant coach Jim Hughes but kept assistant Wayne Cashman.

Not many people would expect the Flyers to have the NHL's best goals-against average nearly a quarter of the way into the season. Not in a league that has such goalies as New Jersey's Martin Brodeur and Colorado's Patrick Roy. Yet the Flyers have a 1.84 average and have been No. 1 in that category for a week. "It means that, five-on-five, we're playing really well," defenseman Eric Weinrich said before the Flyers hosted San Jose last night at the First Union Center. The team is playing the way coach Ken Hitchcock wants it to play, Weinrich added.

An 18-year-old baseball player has died from injuries caused when he collided with a teammate as they chased down a fly ball during a Senior Babe Ruth League game in Belmont, Mass. Brendon Grant was playing leftfield when he ran into the centerfielder during a game Wednesday. He was struck in the neck and chest. Paramedics restored Grant's vital signs, but he died later at a Cambridge hospital of a fracture to the larynx and the surrounding cartilage, the state medical examiner's office said.

Wayne Cashman, the Flyers' head coach in the 1997-98 season, was named as an assistant coach yesterday by the Boston Bruins, with whom he played for 17 years and won two Stanley Cups. Cashman, 56, remains the sixth-leading scorer in Bruins history with 277 goals and 516 assists for 793 points. He signed a three-year contract; terms were not disclosed. The Pittsburgh Penguins have given Jaromir Jagr's agent permission to talk to the New York Rangers and at least one other team - likely the Dallas Stars - about a contract extension.

Bill Barber's debut as the Flyers' head coach certainly was entertaining. Rousing, even. Freed from the shackles of deposed coach Craig Ramsay's trapping defense, the Flyers went hard at the New York Islanders Sunday night, knocking pucks and bodies about with a boisterous two-man forecheck, forging a solid 5-2 victory. A team that could play like that regularly might bring the First Union Center crowd out of its early-season doldrums, might freshen the city's outlook toward its hockey heroes, whose exploits haven't been as exciting as the Eagles' or the Sixers' so far this fall.

Bob Clarke says it's never easy to fire a coach, but he sure seems to be getting the hang of it. The Flyers assembled their familiar set again yesterday, arranging the most recognizable local props since Chief Halftown folded his wigwam and slinked away. Different men this time, but the same somber expressions behind the table, the same assurances that the solution has been found. At least this time the guy they shoved aside didn't have cancer, so maybe it is a step in the right direction.

It is hard to say how Flyers prospect Petr Hubacek feels about his first NHL training camp, because Hubacek speaks no English. Even with defenseman Michal Sykora translating, Hubacek, perhaps nervous in his new surroundings, says little that can be quoted. But others speak eloquently about the speedy, shifty 21-year-old Czech centerman, who is one of the brightest spots of the Flyers' preseason. Last night, Hubacek had the game-winning goal and an assist in the Flyers' 3-2 exhibition victory over the visiting Washington Caps.

Former Flyers head coach Wayne Cashman says he has taken a minor league coaching job because he wants to teach. Cashman, 55, an assistant coach with the Flyers last season after being replaced as head coach in 1997-98 by Roger Neilson, was introduced at a news conference Thursday as the new coach and director of hockey operations for the Pensacola (Fla.) Ice Pilots of the East Coast Hockey League. He replaces Al Pederson, who was fired after four years as Ice Pilots coach.
