Blues coach Mike Keenan wishes Brett Hull would keep some of his comments to himself.

The day after Hull suggested there was a complacency within the team and that the Blues "lack the skill to play at this level," Keenan expressed his disappointment over the quotes.

"Brett should worry about himself playing to the best of his ability instead of worrying about his teammates," Keenan said. "He can be very, very critical of teammates if he likes, but I don't think any comments from players is very productive. It's very counterproductive. That disappoints me because he should be saying that to his teammates instead of the media.

"Brett is out of line to make those comments. I don't think he really knows. He's never been on a championship club and he doesn't know fundamentally what it takes mentally."

Keenan didn't disagree with Hull that the Blues lack skill, though.

"That's a comment that may be true and may not be true," Keenan said. "On nights when it comes together, they compete with some pretty good teams. I can agree with him completely that this is not the most skilled team in the league. But that being said, there's no reason you can't be one of the most competitive or hardest-working teams in the league."

You've got to wonder how much longer Hull and Keenan can coexist. But as Hull said not long ago, "He can't trade me because the fans would kill him."

There hasn't been this much bad blood between Philadelphia and Montreal since Chris Chelios knocked Brian Propp silly with that elbow in the playoffs a few years back.

But the Flyers and Canadiens are at each other's throat again because of the Feb. 1 incident where Montreal's Marc Bureau elbowed Petr Svoboda in the face, which later earned a five-game suspension.

That same night Flyers enforcer Shawn Antoski tried to fight Montreal's Donald Brashear in the corridor between the dressing rooms.

The two teams meet again April 11 in Philadelphia, and Bureau better keep his head up.

"Dave Brown told me my rookie year that you never forget something like that," Eric Lindros said of Bureau's flagrant hit on Svoboda. "This might not have been the right time and place to do something about it, but there will be a time and there will be a place."

Did you hear that, Geoff Courtnall?

Detroit is one of the teams Wayne Gretzky would like to play for, but the Red Wings aren't interested.

"What can Wayne Gretzky do for us at this point?" asked Wings senior vice president Jimmy Devellano. "Why fix something if it's not broke?"

Apparently, there might be something to those Gretzky to Anaheim as an unrestricted free agent rumors, especially if the Great One sees a chance to align himself in some way with Disney.

The Ducks say they will be looking this summer for a center to play between Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne, so why not Gretzky, who would still be able to live in Southern California? …
