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.

Matt Duchene apparently took a two-year contract so as to motivate himself and help the team. What year is this again? (All Things Avs)

Stars owner Tom Gaglardi says there won’t be anything holding him back in free agency this summer. (Dallas Morning News)

Lubomir Visnovsky might stay in Europe rather than play for the Islanders? Hoo boy. (Islanders Point Blank)

Oilers third-round pick Danil Zharkov thinks he can outplay first overall choice Nail Yakupov. Well then. (Edmonton Journal)

The Blue Jackets fired four scouts. I didn’t think their draft was that bad. (Columbus Dispatch)

Jeremy Roenick was a big fan of Chicago’s draft. The Hawks picking his nephew may have something to do with that. (Chicago Tribune)

The Blues’ draft this year saw them go big. Like everyone being 6’2″ or taller big. (Post-Dispatch)

Damien Cox sees some headaches in trying to get Roberto Luongo to Toronto. (Toronto Star)

Rick Nash apparently won’t waive his no-trade clause to go to Ottawa. Welp. (Senators Extra)

    For Matt’s sake, I wish he could’ve gotten on with an organization with true Player Development.
