Morning Skate: Saturday, January 19

Larry Brooks from the New York Post absolves any fans that are pumped about the start of the NHL season. I wholeheartedly agree. Nobody should feel guilty about jumping back into the sport with both feet.

Steve Begin has hooked on with the Calgary Flames and qualified for their opening night roster. They also have Dennis Wideman. In other news the Flames arent going to be very good this year.

Ed Jovanovski has been named captain of the Florida Panthers for this season. A nice honor for Jovo-Cop after his career has come full circle in Florida.

P.K. Subban still doesnt have a signed contract for this season, so the Montreal Canadiens will have themselves a rare holdout. Wonder if this means P.K. goes on the trade market if this thing is prolonged?

The Dallas Stars are back and theyre hoping the fans will follow with new ownership acting as caring stewards. Turnout has been good for practices.

The price of Bruins tickets has jumped precipitously in the secondary ticket market as the lockout ends. Ive heard many complaints about this on twitter.

For something completely different: sad to hear about more violence in Belfast and Northern Ireland.
