The Kings hadn't acquired a thirtysomething player in more than a month, so they rectified that by sending center John McIntyre, 23, to the New York Rangers on Monday for defenseman Mark Hardy, 34. Additionally, the Kings received the rights to Ottawa's fifth-round pick in the entry draft in June. New York had acquired the Senators' draft choice in an earlier deal. "It feels unbelievable," said Hardy, who had asked Ranger General Manager Neil Smith on Feb. 24 to be traded.

Re "Ex-Door Lighting Their Ire," Oct. 5 Music is such an important part of life. It evokes memories, good and bad. To have the memory of a first kiss or a high school prom or first heartbreak turned into a shiny new car, or sneaker, takes away the emotion the song had. When I first heard the Nike spot using "Revolution" by the Beatles, I was shocked. Such a great song used to sell shoes. Shame on those who allowed it to happen. It opened a Pandora's box. Just because the use of popular music is a common practice doesn't make it OK. Why can't the advertising world find good talent to write their own original music to sell their wares?
