This won't be good

There's a story on that teams might be doing away, or at least passing on, the morning skate routine. This could pose problems for hockey hounds, as morning skates are usually the best time to score autographs.

Last Friday, with the Florida Panthers in Raleigh, the Carolina Hurricanes had an off-ice workout, rather than the traditional morning skate. At that time, reports, Hurricanes coach Peter Laviolette said he go with the off-ice workouts over the morning skates.

One day later, though, the Hurricanes had a morning skate down here in Humidity Bay. Go figure, huh?

I suppose we'll see soon enough, with three teams visiting the St. Petet Times Forum within a week, if this approach is being adopted by other NHL teams. I sure as heck hope not. What about you?
