Duhatschek's Notebook

No perfect formula for building a contender Add to ...

AND FINALLY: David Booth made his peace with Mike Richards in a weird sort of way. The two play against each other for the first time since Richards' hit to the unsuspecting Booth's head back on Oct. 24 caused a concussion that forced him to miss 45 games; a chance to play on the U.S. men's Olympic hockey team; and generally ruined his year. Booth. a player who'd picked up all of 76 penalty minutes in his first three NHL seasons, picked a fight with Richards early on in Wednesday's game between his Florida Panthers and the Philadelphia Flyers. Richards obliged him and after the fact, Booth told the Miami Herald that was the end of it. "I don't really know what I'm doing when I fight," Booth said. "It was just a lot of stuff built up, `what could have been had I been playing.' You think about that. But it's behind me now.''
