'"In the last few years, I never really ran it," he said. "I hung out with Ed Kilgore and Kevin O'Connell (of WGRZ). This one, we'll (Biron and his wife Anne Marie) run. I'll push the baby around in a stroller."'

Ex-hockey player still scoring goals

‘LaFontaine’s three years of work with a nonprofit foundation he created in Huntington, Companions in Courage, is bringing interactive, colorful, high-tech rooms to children’s hospitals around the country, for video games, conferencing, long-distance chats and other uses – with the closest site to home so far being Schneider Children’s Hospital in New Hyde Park. CIC’s executive director, Jim Johnson, said the room should be completed this summer. Rooms also are in the works in Buffalo and at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn.’

'Of more immediate concern is what the Time Warner-Comcast deal could mean to the Buffalo Sabres' plans to send its games to Rochester and Syracuse through its deal with the Madison Square Garden Network (MSG). Time Warner has dropped MSG from both cities in a financial feud. Once the Adelphia deal takes effect, and if MSG stays off the Rochester and Syracuse systems when the Sabres start playing again, the NHL team will be out in the cold in those markets again.'

'Quinn also talked about being confident that a new deal would get done in time to start the season in October. "I think this will result in an agreement because we've taken away the threats. We've said, guys, we want to make a deal with you. We want to do something that's fair and good for the game. I think the time is right now for the high road and I think that's what the owners and Gary (Bettman) are conveying."'
