CYBER : NEVER THOUGHT THEY'D PUT HIM IN THE GOON SQUAD.

Byline: Tom Hoffarth

The newest feature on CBS' SportsLine Fantasy Hockey site is called the ``Enforce-O-Meter'' (http://ww3.sportsline.com/u/fantasy /hockey/features/goon.htm). But read between the lines - or read that address again, sweetheart: It's a way to measure Tie Domi's goon value against Bob Probert, Ken Baumgartner and Matt Johnson.

In fantasy leagues, as in life, that's important to know.

The ``Enforce-O-Meter'' assigns points for penalties of an ``aggressive nature,'' so not all penalties are recorded in the system.

Remember, it's not the quantity of the penalty minutes, it's the quality.

For instance, a match penalty or gross misconduct is worth 25 points. A fighting major is 15. If it trickles down to getting caught doing something sissy-like (elbowing, kneeing, slashing, spearing, unsportsmanlike conduct or obstruction cross-checking), it's 1 measly point.

And you get nothing for butt-ending with the stick. Not only that, it's just not nice.

Through Friday's games, Toronto's Domi held an edge over Chicago's Probert (141-134), even though Edmonton's Sean Brown (No. 3 with 121 points) has taken more overall penalties. The Kings' Johnson and Sean O'Donnell were tied for 21st with 60 points.

For straight-on info on which players lead the league in certain penalties, there's another area called the ``Penalty Tracker''(http://ww2.sportsline.com/u/fantasy/hockey/features/stat3.htm).

Luc Robitaille, it seems, is one of 11 players called for diving this season. But there's a big part of the season to go.
