Ice Edge chief executive officer Anthony LeBlanc said "Ice Edge has committed to keep the Coyotes in Glendale for the remaining term of the original lease."

On game nights like Tuesday, the televisions in Gary Rissling's restaurants show Washington Capitals' hockey contests. But he'd gladly tune in to watch a local team, should Baltimore one day get back on the ice. "Can you imagine a rink built beside M&T Bank Stadium, with a team playing hockey in a tough Ravens' style?" said Rissling, of Monkton, a hard-nosed forward who played for the Skipjacks from 1982-87. Owner of three Silver Spring Mining Company restaurants, he plans to attend Tuesday night's National Hockey League preseason game, dubbed the Baltimore Hockey Classic, between the Capitals and Boston Bruins at the Baltimore Arena (7 p.m.)

The speculation and apocrypha surrounding "cover curses" in sports go back at least as far as the " Sports Illustrated cover jinx . " In the age of video games, the " Madden Curse " has taken up the mantle as the most hotly-debated superstition in sports marketing. Close behind "Madden" in the curse department is "NHL," which has had rumblings about a curse since the late 1990s. Sports Illustrated themselves even devoted a gallery to it . It's important to note that "curses" are empirically bunk, especially in sports.

NHLPA wins, fans lose Harvey Fialkov Sun Sentinel NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and the greedy owners got their 50-50 hockey-related revenue split, a 7 percent decrease for the players. But NHLPA leader Donald Fehr got the better of the deal on maximum length of contracts, next year's $64.3 million salary cap and a more defined pension plan. The empty rinks stuck it to arena workers and ancillary businesses that depend on game-day patronage. Bettman stuck a knife into the backs of new TV partners by wiping out 480 games, including All-Star weekend and the Winter Classic.

Drop egos and drop puck Harvey Fialkov Sun Sentinel Absolutely. It's no secret that NHL Players' Association chief Donald Fehr plays hardball. Ask baseball fans about the cancellation of the 1994 World Series. This is the third work stoppage under the condescending guidance of NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, including the entire 2004-05 season. Let Fehr's brother, Steve, and deputy commissioner Bill Daly iron out any contractual issues. The billionaire owners should absorb the lockout costs because they turned the key. There's time to salvage the season.

No threat to Classic Chris Kuc Chicago Tribune A debate rages between the optimistic side of me (rarely used) and the pessimistic side (hello, old friend) when it comes to the NHL lockout. I'd say cooler heads will eventually prevail, but neither side is looking particularly frosty at this point. So I'm putting the over/under on the end of the lockout at Dec. 1. It's right around then that many of the players will realize they haven't received a paycheck in a while and the league will start eyeballing the possibility of losing the big-time payday of the Winter Classic on Jan. 1 at cavernous Michigan Stadium.

Sunday's matinee against the Carolina Hurricanes won't go down as one of the more complete or perfect performances by the Washington Capitals this year. In fact, there were few moments at Verizon Center where they seemed firmly in control of the contest, but all that truly matters is that the Capitals found a way to win. Boosted by Dmitry Orlov's first NHL goal, which stood as the game-winner, and a 43-save outing by Tomas Vokoun, the Capitals claimed a 2-1 win over Carolina that catapulted them to first place in the Southeast Division and third in the Eastern Conference.

The Stanley Cup has been hugged, kissed and photographed thousands of times and dented at least once since June, when the Bruins defeated the Canucks to win their first championship since 1972. Fixing the damage caused when the Cup fell off a table was simple. Now the Bruins have the hard job: defending it. The NHL season begins Thursday with three games, including the Bruins playing host to the Flyers, and the Penguins — minus concussion victim Sidney Crosby — in Vancouver.
