Ray Ferraro didn't expect any burdens to be lifted when he scored his 400th goal. When it finally came--seven games after he scored No. 399--he was able to enjoy it in a win. "That's a lot of goals," Ferraro quipped, "especially when you can't shoot." Atlanta rookies Ilya Kovalchuk and Dany Heatley had two goals each as the Thrashers defeated the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Maple Leafs, 5-4, on Friday.

The Mighty Ducks' Tomas Sandstrom and the Kings' Ray Ferraro were among the players exposed to the NHL expansion draft, as teams submitted protected lists to the league Tuesday. The Atlanta Thrashers will select 26 players, one from every team except the Nashville Predators, on Friday. Sandstrom, an unrestricted free agent, had 15 goals and 32 points last season despite missing 24 games because of a broken left wrist. Duck officials were not expecting to re-sign him.

For three-plus seasons, center Ray Ferraro was the Kings' conscience. An articulate and passionate voice during some awful days, he was always honest about the team's failings but hopeful better times were ahead. Better times are here, but Ferraro isn't. His age, 35, and creaky knees made him expendable, and the Kings didn't keep him from signing with the expansion Atlanta Thrashers as a free agent last summer. He's again enduring plenty of losses, but he's happy the Kings are thriving.

Since being acquired last March in a trade from the contending New York Rangers, center Ray Ferraro has made the most of playing for a losing team. He has missed only one game and leads the team with 19 goals. But would he protest if traded before the March 18 deadline? "I've told [Coach] Larry [Robinson] this, too, and that is that my dream is to still win a Stanley Cup," said Ferraro, 32.

The Kings did not make any trades Sunday but they still might before Tuesday's deadline. The player most often rumored to be involved has been center Ray Ferraro, who has said that he wants to play for a Stanley Cup contender. "It's out of my hands," said Ferraro, who in his 13 seasons has never reached the Stanley Cup finals. "I would be lying if I said that I didn't have some anxiety. We'll just have to wait and see. Their decision is going to signify their direction.

After the Kings' 4-4 tie at Boston on Monday, Coach Larry Robinson criticized the play of some veteran players and told reporters that a few were doing too much coaching instead of playing. This did not sit well with center Ray Ferraro, who met briefly with Robinson during Wednesday's practice. "I spoke to [Robinson] and he explained how his quotes were taken out of context," said Ferraro, who scored his sixth goal Monday. "I certainly don't think that I'm trying to coach the team."

Ray Ferraro, an unrestricted free-agent center who spent the last three-plus seasons with the Kings, signed a two-year contract with the expansion Atlanta Thrashers on Monday. Ferraro, who will be 35 in a few weeks, was hampered by knee problems most of last season but a strong finish gave him 13 goals and 31 points in 65 games. His age and questions about his production took him out of the Kings' plans.

Ray Ferraro is on a scoring spree, and the New York Islanders finally took advantage of it Wednesday night at Toronto. Ferraro's second goal of the game came with 1:50 remaining in regulation to give the Islanders a 5-4 victory. Tuesday night at home against St. Louis, Ferraro had a hat trick in the second period to give the Islanders a 5-2 lead. But they had to settle for a 7-7 tie. Until getting five goals in the last two games, Ferraro had only nine goals in 26 games.

He was getting $7 an hour, good money for a 16-year-old. But he had to lift 3,200 concrete blocks a day for his father's business in Trail, British Columbia, to earn it. Skating for a living looked pretty good. It still does, 1,000 NHL games later for Ray Ferraro, who joined the 1,000 club Sunday at Dallas. He is the fourth King to do so this season, joining Doug Bodger, Garry Galley and Russ Courtnall. It's a long time to keep a chip on your shoulder.

Ray Ferraro, who had broken some Orange County hearts the night before, sent flowers Friday night and also settled things for some confused travel agents. Ferraro's first-period goal sent the Kings to a 2-0 victory over San Jose, which completed the Western Conference playoff picture. Anaheim Mighty Ducks, get ready to head to Detroit as the sixth-place team in the West. Seventh-place Sharks, your mission, impossible though it might sound, involves going to Colorado.

When Ray Ferraro walked into the hospital on Jan. 12, all he knew was that his right knee hurt. When he walked out later in the day, torn cartilage attended to in an arthroscopic operation, all he knew was that it no longer hurt. "It just feels good," said Ferraro, who will cheat the doctors' estimates and play tonight at Washington. "Originally, they were talking four to six weeks. But everybody heals differently." And Ferraro, apparently, heals faster than most.

On the plane from St. Louis to Chicago a week ago, King Coach Larry Robinson went to Ray Ferraro and asked, "Can you go again tomorrow?" The question was music to Ferraro's ears. He answered in the affirmative and played almost 16 minutes Sunday after playing more than 16 Saturday on 34-year-old legs. "I feel good in there, I really do," said Ferraro, who has been moved to a line with Vladimir Tsyplakov and Pavel Rosa that generates shots and scoring chances.

Ray Ferraro has watched the Kings' first two games from a vantage point high in arenas in Edmonton and Vancouver, and he wants badly to get back into the lineup. But not this way. "I want to be in there because they want me to be in there, not because Lapy's hurt," Ferraro said about Ian Laperriere, the King center who was injured Monday at Vancouver. "I went through that last year and I hope that he's just twisted his knee and is going to be out a week."

Ray Ferraro has quietly slid into an elder-statesman role with the Kings, in part because he is 34, in part because he has played 14 seasons in the NHL and in part because an injured left knee cost him much of last season and he may not be able to do what he could before the injury. With that in mind, Ferraro watched the waiver draft come and go as a player exposed to it for the first time. "I pretty well figured I wouldn't be picked because of my age and salary [$1.
