Mats Sundin's immediate reaction told the story. "Are you serious?" he said. "You made my whole year. " Sundin, who played 13 of his 18 NHL seasons with Toronto, couldn't quite believe the call from the Hall of Fame. Sundin, Joe Sakic, Pavel Bure and Adam Oates were elected to the Hall on Tuesday. Sundin is the second Swedish player in the Hall, joining Borje Salming, another Maple Leafs icon. The induction ceremony is Nov. 12 in Toronto. Among those eligible this year for the first time but not elected was Brendan Shanahan, who is the league's chief disciplinarian.

We know how much money the NHL claims to be losing as a result of the lockout it imposed Sept. 15 -- $730 million as of last week, according to Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly -- and we know that fans have become, in turn, angry and apathetic. And that league, team and arena workers are losing work hours and pay. But what isn't mentioned is that there's another victim of this labor dispute: the Hockey Hall of Fame's induction ceremony, which will take place Monday in Toronto but isn't getting the usual attention because of the lockout.

Joe Sakic's $17-million salary makes the Colorado Avalanche center the highest-paid player in the NHL this season, the Toronto Star reported. The Avalanche was forced to give Sakic, who made $3.1 million last season, a three-year, $21-million deal after the New York Rangers signed him to an offer sheet for that amount. The contract pays Sakic $2 million a year plus a $15-million signing bonus for this season.

Colorado Avalanche captain Joe Sakic said he will play against the Edmonton Oilers tonight. "I'm ready to go," the Avalanche center said after practice Monday. "I'm sure I'll be a little rusty in the first period." Sakic has sat out the last 15 games because of a broken right foot. He began skating on his own last week, and he practiced with the team for the first time Wednesday in Chicago. Monday was only his second full practice with the squad.

Joe Sakic scored two goals to give him 561 and pass Guy Lafleur for 18th place on the NHL goal scoring list as Colorado ended a two-game losing streak and defeated the Northwest Division-leading Calgary Flames, 7-4, on Tuesday night at Denver. "It means a lot because as a kid you watched [Lafleur] in Montreal, doing his magic," Sakic said. "I was fortunate to room with him on the road for the first couple of years I was in Quebec." Calgary had won the first four games of a five-game trip.

Joe Sakic scored twice in the second period to supply all the offense the Colorado Avalanche got in a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday night at New York. He broke up a scoreless game with a rising shot during a power play at 13:52. When he got held up seconds later on another breakaway, Sakic was awarded the fifth penalty shot of his career. Like the four before, he found the back of the net. This time he zeroed in on the space between Kevin Weekes' pads.

Legend has it that the marathon distance of a little more than 26 miles was determined by how far the Athenian soldier, Pheidippides, ran from Marathon to herald the victory of the Greeks over the Persians in 490 B.C. before he collapsed and died. It was 97 degrees when Hiromi Suzuki of Japan won the world championship over the same route in Athens last week. "Before the race, I thought about the history," she said. "The heat was not so tough."

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling this NHL All-Star week. OK, how many of you were even aware the NHL's best were in town this week? Apparently none of my friends, judging by the number of times I've had the following conversation this week: "You going to the Super Bowl?" "No. I'm covering the NHL All-Star game." "Oh. Yeah. Right. That." Well, the week already has featured everything you could want in an event like this: superstars, nostalgia and drama. And they haven't even played the main game yet. To tell you the truth, the game isn't even my favorite part.
