A year ago, Len Barrie looked to be playing out the string in Frankfurt, Germany, leading the league in scoring for a team that was in first place. He was almost 30, and it was time to look at the rest of his life. And then he was suspended for eight games for high-sticking an opponent.

Barry Melrose doesn't officially return as an analyst to ESPN until Jan. 1, but in the interim, the Barry and Barrie Show continues to provide steady entertainment. Melrose and Tampa Bay Lightning co-owner Len Barrie continue to take shots at each other after Melrose's firing as Lightning coach. Barrie told the St. Petersburg Times, "My thing is you're paid to do a job, and he didn't do it from day one. How he came in and prepared for this job was total negligence."

So now Len Barrie is a checking winger, which is a long way from being a first-line center, but a longer way, as far as he's concerned, from Long Beach. That's the idea. "I'd rather be a fourth-line winger here than the leading scorer in the minors," he said. Barrie was leading the International Hockey League and Ice Dogs in scoring with 10 goals and 10 assists when he was recalled to replace injured Jozef Stumpel and installed as the center on a line that included Ziggy Palffy.

Florida wanted forward Len Barrie last summer, but he figured the Kings offered him a better chance to play in the NHL. On Friday, the Panthers got what they wanted, claiming Barrie on waivers the Kings had hoped would slip past the rest of the league. Barrie was waived Wednesday, the last day before the Tuesday trading deadline that such a thing could be done. The idea was, he would clear waivers and be shipped to Long Beach if the Kings needed a roster spot to accommodate a trade.

All the folks were in from Victoria, about a two-hour ferry ride away, and from various towns around British Columbia for the Barrie family reunion. The host was most gracious for the Friday night finale. Len Barrie treated his guests, who seemed to number about half of the announced 15,006, to his first goal since Jan. 6 and started the Kings to a 5-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks.
