There is something missing from Joe Sakic's new plaque at the Hockey Hall of Fame _ and it's not because the printer made a mistake.
Brian Burke walked the red carpet at Monday night's Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony and was determined not to go there. After doing an interview about former Toronto Maple Leafs center Mats Sundin, the general manager declined to talk about what everyone had no choice but to talk about: the NHL lockout.
As Adam Oates received his Hockey Hall of Fame blazer Sunday afternoon, one fan at Air Canada Centre yelled out: "Finally."

Joe Sakic was four years old when his father took him to his first hockey game.
Once again, a Washington Capitals leadership baton is passed from Dale Hunter to Adam Oates.
Just after noon Tuesday, the first report came out that Adam Oates got the nod as coach of the Washington Capitals. Receiving the call about getting your first NHL head job is unreal in itself.
Growing up in Sweden, in the 1970s and 1980s, Nicklas Lidstrom watched as the likes of Borje Salming, Hakan Loob and Mats Naslund became stars in the NHL. He knew of the top hockey league in the world by following those Swedish pioneers.

Sidney Crosby's streak of 25 games with at least a point — tied for the 11th longest in NHL history — was snapped by the New York Islanders and goalie Rick DiPietro, who stopped the Pittsburgh captain and the rest of the Penguins' high-powered offense in a 2-1 shootout victory Wednesday night.
Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins used their first game this season against the Washington Capitals to set some high expectations for the Winter Classic.
