PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.

    Now, let’s all get a “Put it all back in perspective dose of reality check”!

      Yup, good on him for stepping up to make a difference in his community (and around the world with Tretiak). I wonder if he’s thought about calling Dr. Recchi – no sense letting all that valuable medical experience go to waste now that Recchi’s retired…

    Matt Gilroy was a healthy scratch last night for Tampa. I imagine he won’t be on the team for much longer, in one way or another.
