Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:
ANY TAKERS Scouts from seven NHL teams were at the game, including Edmonton general manager Kevin Lowe, two from Philadelphia and three from the New York Rangers. To a man, they said they were in Washington because it was cheaper to see the Stars here than to fly to Dallas.
"We're trying to put together the perfect line," chuckled one Rangers scout. "We're going to have Eric [Lindros] center Pavel Bure and Jaromir Jagr."
Also in the building was Washington general manager George McPhee, who recently returned to town after an extended period of time on the road scouting other NHL teams.
Did we mention that the trading deadline is Tuesday?
SHOWING FEELINGS Signs at the game included "Sign Oates" and "Jagr, You Stole Ted's Wallet Then You Stole Our Hearts."
CHARITY TOURNAMENT A hockey tournament that features active duty law enforcement officers and firefighters from the District, Maryland and Virginia is scheduled March 16-17 at Skate Frederick, Riverbend Way, Frederick, Md. All proceeds go to the Children of 9-1-1 Fund, according to tournament organizers.
Among the teams to participate will be the U.S. Secret Service, coached by Caps defenseman Calle Johansson; the FBI, CIA, police and/or sheriff's departments from Frederick, Howard, Montgomery and Loudon counties; and teams from fire departments in Hagerstown, Germantown, Alexandria and Montgomery County. For more information, call 301/662-7362.
