Last year Tampa had the game on the radio as well not sure if it was in Dallas or Tampa. It's bad that a team can't broadcast all of the home pre-season games at the very least.

The Tampa station is prepared to cover the expenses to broadcast the game, which are more than it would cost The Ticket to do the same, but I'm betting the lack of radio and TV in the Dallas market has more to do with the Dallas Stars than The Ticket or FSSW/MY27 (or is it KTXA this year?). I imagine it has something to do with ticket sales, which is funny in a way since the Stars are giving out thousands of tickets to pre-season games in an effort to try to get butts in the seats. I don't know how many they are giving out, but my guess based upon what I've been told and what I've seen is it's north of 5,000 tickets per game.

The Stars do give out ~2,000 per regular season game and the team wonders why ticket sales drop every year. Why would anyone pay for something they can get for free? No, the ticket department really doesn't get it.

I like what they're doing with the lines..

They need to know if Morrow-Ribeiro-Cheecho is going to work and they want them out there against good competition, so they're in this game as the #1 line..

In the next game, I bet that Neal-Richards-Eriksson get less ice time than normal so that the staff can see what Ott-Benn-Brunnstrom look like as a #2-ish line..

I think it's a very good approach. We'll get a good close look at these other two lines that could turn out to be pretty good for us..

I know you get some free for showing up on Saturday morning for the practice at the AAC. Besides that, I have no idea.

Hmm...

I want tickets to the 9/30 Thursday game, and I'm a cheap sucker, but I'm not sure I'm willing to bet on them handing them out next Tuesday when I can make it out to practice.

Decisions decisions...

Anyone able to find a live feed of the game?
I'd prefer video, but radio's fine.

Really bland first period. Couple of chances that shouldve been put home but nothing too exciting.

just reading the twitter accounts of the game so far, sounds like Cheechoo's skating is poor. If he hasn't improved in this area over the off-season I have a hard time seeing him on the roster.

I can't believe this Lightning play-by-play guy still has a job. He goes into muppet screaming voice whenever anything happens. It annoys me to no end.

He is definitely an acquired taste. And I don't think anybody but Lightning fans have ever acquired it

2-0 now it looks like.

Andrew Raycroft seems to be playing all right considering the circumstances. The 2nd line doesn't look like it's made much of an impact. Coaching staff might have to start thinking of a replacement for Cheechoo on the 2nd line.

We really really really suck. Especially Niskanen and Daley.
