Any Other Teams Doing This?

via Working the Corners,

SAN JOSE – The San Jose Sharks and Comcast SportsNet Bay Area announced today that they have reached an agreement to have the local blackout lifted for nine 2008-09 San Jose Sharks games that are not scheduled to be televised on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

The move will allow those local hockey fans who subscribe to the Center Ice hockey package to view all of the Sharks 82 regular season games on television.

Looks like a trend may be developing- via a press release from the Phoenix Coyotes…

Phoenix Coyotes Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Michael Bucek announced today that the National Hockey League has lifted the “NHL Center Ice” blackout in the Phoenix region for 19 Coyotes games.  Coyotes fans that subscribe to the “NHL Center Ice” package will now be able to see 78 of the Coyotes’ 80 remaining games on television this season

Where Is Stamkos

from Lightning Strikes,

Seems Steven Stamkos, the No. 1 overall pick, is averaging just 9:47 of ice time. That was 41st among rookies heading into Tuesday’s games. Saturday against the Hurricanes, he played just 6:05….

“It’s got to be a conscious effort on my part,” Melrose said about finding Stamkos some ice time. “You want to get him in the lineup. You want to put him in situations where he will succeed. We have to get him more than six minutes.”

Sometimes An Honest Captain Doesn’t Work

from Rich Chere at NJ.com,

“It was a tremendous honor because my personality doesn’t necessarily fit to that position,” (Bobby) Holik said. “It didn’t change me. It’s something I value very highly as far as my career goes, but as the season went on I realized I’m not captain material because sometimes you have to be more politically correct or get along with people. Or not be too honest, because I feel you have to kind of keep the peace.

“I guess I’m just too blunt about some things. Or too honest. You’d think that would be a strength or a good thing about a captain, but not the way I am, I guess, sometimes. At least I don’t think it worked out that well there.”

Viktor Kozlov could miss two weeks with an undisclosed left leg injury, General Manager George McPhee said moments again. Kozlov appeared to injure his knee when he was hit along the boards by Rob Davison in the second period of last night’s 5-1 win over Vancouver.

“We suspect it will be a couple of weeks,” McPhee said. “But we’ll know more in a couple of weeks.”
