As a longtime King fan who had finally seen the team turn the corner to respectability, it upsets me to watch General Manager Nick Beverley tear this team apart. During his two-year tenure, he has traded the likes of All-Stars Paul Coffey, Bob Kudelski, Jimmy Carson and Tomas Sandstrom for players such as Gary Shuchuk, Doug Houda, the venerable Jim Thomson and now Jim Paek. As Beverley will soon find out, the Kings have many more problems than even Marty McSorley's broad shoulders can carry.

The Kings lost one No. 17 and gained a better one. Right wing Jari Kurri made the number famous in Edmonton. King right wing Jim Thomson would like to do the same in Minnesota, where he is expected to join the North Stars after being selected in Thursday's expansion draft. Thomson, 25, spent most of the season with the Kings' New Haven farm club, appearing in eight games for the Kings and scoring one goal, a game-winner against the Chicago Blackhawks on Jan 6.

Lonnie Loach will remember the chance King Coach Barry Melrose gave him to play in the NHL after the pair met in the minor leagues. Jim Thomson won't forget the understanding he says King management showed during the heart-numbing season two years ago when four family members died. Loach and Thomson once were Kings.

The alternatives for taking a ferry to Santa Catalina Island--currently a choice between one- and two-hour trips--could soon become more complicated. A new company has announced plans to acquire Catalina Cruises, the slower and less expensive of two ferry services from the Long Beach-San Pedro area to the island. If approved by a state regulatory commission, Catalina Clipper's offer would introduce a second high-speed service.

Westerners held as "human shields" at an Iraqi armaments factory rioted against mistreatment by sadistic guards and a starvation diet, one of the men said Tuesday just before flying to freedom from Baghdad. "We tore down fences, broke all the windows and daubed anti-Saddam (Iraqi President Saddam Hussein) slogans on the walls," said Briton Jim Thomson. The 50-year-old Thomson, who was released with 32 other Britons Tuesday on health grounds, said the riot broke out Sept.

Servite boys' basketball Coach Scott Hamilton has been fired. Hamilton, who teaches mathematics, said Wednesday the decision caught him by surprise. The school also decided not to renew his teaching contract. In eight seasons as coach, Hamilton had a record of 110-71, including 15-13 this season. "I'm upset about it," Hamilton said. "I like the school and I like the kids. But the school felt it needed to make a change for basketball."

Wayne Gretzky is in Canada with an aching back and Luc Robitaille, Tony Granato, Tomas Sandstrom and Jari Kurri are still vacationing after the Canada Cup. What does that leave the Kings in terms of offense? Not much. At least not Saturday night when the offense looked as if it were still on vacation as the Kings lost, 4-1, to the Pittsburgh Penguins in an exhibition game played before a Forum crowd of 12,529.

The Mighty Ducks have offered a termination contract to defenseman Tom Kurvers, signaling an end to his unproductive tenure with the team. The Ducks traded for Kurvers last summer in an attempt to bolster their dismal power play, but the deal that sent captain Troy Loney to the New York Islanders backfired. Kurvers, 32, proved to be a defensive liability and the power play remained the worst in the league.

+ Welcome back, Winnipeg Jets. Their second incarnation began Sunday … but the Montreal Canadiens spoiled their party by inflicting a 5-1 loss. Fans, Jets put on a great show. + Congratulations to Jaromir Jagr. Back in the NHL after three seasons in Russia, he recorded his 1,600th point with an assist in the Philadelphia Flyers' opener. + The New York Rangers waived Sean Avery and no one else claimed him. His act has grown old. He was to report to the Rangers' American Hockey League farm team.
