E.J. Hradek is back on "NHL Live," if only on a temporary basis.

Hradek, who was co-host of the two-hour talkshow that is on NHL Network and Sirius/XM Satellite Radio with Don La Greca, hasn't been on the show for a couple of months. At the top of the show, Hradek explained that his full-time employer, ESPN, has problems with him being on the show. Hradek is a senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and a contributor to ESPNEWS.

Hradek said a compromise was reached where he can be a "guest" on "NHL Live." He is hoping to work out a deal with ESPN where he can be on "NHL Live" more.

I wonder if the issue became bigger when they started simulcasting NHL Live on NHL Network (12-2, repeated 5-7)?

BTW, a blog called PuckTheMedia picked up your note on this -- saw it there first:

I've been getting a lot of national play lately. It's neat. Thanks for letting me know, Eric.
