NASHVILLE -- Tampa Bay forward Steven Stamkos reiterated his desire to remain with the Tampa Bay Lightning again Friday, this time during his appearance at media day for the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game at Bridgestone Arena.

With contract negotiations continuing and reports of offers playing out in the media during the past few weeks, Stamkos was emphatic with his allegiance to the only NHL club he has known.

"I love it [in Tampa]," he said. "I've said this all along and I said it before the season started, I always envisioned winning a championship in Tampa. Obviously some of this stuff with the contract, that's going to play out and whatever happens, happens. I'm the captain of this team and I have said from Day 1, I am the captain of this team and I want to win in Tampa. I love it in Tampa. We got a great organization, a great owner, a great young team that can be competitive for a long time, and I want to be a part of that for sure."

NASHVILLE -- Eastern Conference All-Star captains Jaromir Jagr and John Tavares on Friday got to experience a bit of what their coaches go through.

Jagr, who was voted captain of the Atlantic Division team, and Tavares, picked as the Metropolitan Division captain, met to fill out the roster for the Eastern Conference for the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, CBC, TVA Sports).

Both captains will take place in the DraftKings NHL Accuracy Shooting competition. Tavares will be one of the shooters, along with Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins, Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Jagr and the Washington Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom will be the passers.

Fantasy MVP for each NHL team at All-Star break

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

The All-Star break is a great time to recognize the most valuable fantasy player from each NHL team. Some were expected to be there; others have been surprises.

Since standard Yahoo leagues count six categories for skaters (goals, assists, plus/minus, penalty minutes, power-play points and shots on goal) and four for goalies (wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts), the most accurate way to evaluate fantasy production over a particular time frame is to use Yahoo's performance-based rankings.

Unlike NHL.com's fantasy rankings, Yahoo's do not have future production in mind. These ranks evaluate how each player's statistical coverage stacks up to his peers, and can be used to identify the most valuable players for each team based on fantasy production to this point in the season. Each player is listed with his position(s) of eligibility and overall rank entering the break.

All-Star Game's 3-on-3 format will challenge goalies

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 3:00 AM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

The NHL All-Star Game never really has been kind to goaltenders.

With all the focus on skill, speed and scoring, and little emphasis on backchecking and defense, high-scoring games are the norm. So what can the guys charged with keeping pucks out of the net expect from the new 3-on-3 format being used Sunday in the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game (5 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports)? With even more time and space, how will goalies approach this?

"Just survive," Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne said with a laugh. "When you think about 3-on-3 with all the best players, there's not going to be a lot of defending to help the goalie. So you just try to have fun with it."

Super 16: Only constant is change

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Not counting the preseason poll, this week marks the 16th Super 16 of the season. The weekly poll made its 2015-16 debut Oct. 16 and has been a staple of your weekly reading on NHL.com every Friday.

With it being 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend, the break in the action provides the time to look back at how the rankings have played out this season.

To say they've been steady would be, well, incorrect.

Twenty-five of the 30 teams have been ranked at one point or another this season. Five teams have been ranked in every Super 16.

Capitals' Trotz returns to Nashville for All-Star Game

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 3:00 AM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Katie Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- If Barry Trotz isn't the founding father of hockey in Nashville, he's pretty close.

Now in his second season with the Washington Capitals, Trotz gets to return to where it all started this weekend as coach of the Metropolitan Division in the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).

The trip provides an opportunity for Trotz to reflect on how far things have come for the Nashville Predators and the city.

"To me, it'll be sort of fulfilling in the fact that when I started there back in '97, to be honest with you, we didn't know if we were going to make it or not in a nontraditional market," Trotz said. "The franchise is healthy. And the city, they'll do a fantastic show. I was there from Day One and I will tell you that they will probably put on the best All-Star Game the NHL has ever seen."

Poile proposes Ruff put four Predators on ice together

Thursday, 01.28.2016 / 9:12 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NASHVILLE -- Nashville Predators general manager David Poile doesn't typically like to meddle in the coach's business, but he had a suggestion for Lindy Ruff, who will coach the Central Division in the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).

"He has an opportunity in a 3-on-3 format to put four players from one team all on the ice at the same time," Poile said. "Maybe he should try that."

Ruff, the Dallas Stars coach, has that opportunity now because Predators forward James Neal was added to the Central Division roster as a replacement for Chicago Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews on Thursday. Neal joins Predators goalie Pekka Rinne and defensemen Roman Josi and Shea Weber on the Central Division team.

NHL, Nashville kick off All-Star Weekend

NASHVILLE -- Set on a concert series stage erected on Demonbreun Street across from the County Music Hall of Fame and Museum and surrounded by buildings and land that were nothing more than parking lots when the Nashville Predators opened for business 18 years ago, the NHL and the city of Nashville officially kicked off 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend on Thursday in a manner befitting the style and culture in this city.

The festivities kicked off with a guitar being handed out as a gift, a free live concert from a local band that's made it big and one of country music's biggest stars on stage to introduce them.

"What an incredible setup, what an incredible beginning to All-Star Weekend," said NHL Commissioner Bettman, who received the guitar from Nashville Mayor Megan Barry. "The planning that the city of Nashville with the Predators and the local organizing committee and Bridgestone have done is nothing short of phenomenal. People are going to be thrilled to be part of this weekend."
