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.

Justin Schultz won’t sign with the Ducks and is, as of today, officially a free agent. Count the Flyers among many teams that will try and sign the University of Wisconsin product. (

    Not saying the sentence above is or isn’t true but when did the Flyers get into the mix for Schultz? Or are we just throwing any free agent with Flyer posts for comments…. it’s working LOL

    I have to think he is going to Toronto / EDM / Vancouver but yes, I think everyteam is giving his agent a call. Duh

      Why would the Rangers not be included in this mix? He would be able to step right in and be used and they are a solid young core back there.
      But the biggest reason why the Rangers are in the mix is the fact he is very good friends with Ryan Mcdonagh and Derek Stepan. They played together at Wisconsin.

    I think eklund started that rumor. He also said an hour before the JVR Luke Schenn deal that Philly and the leafs are working on a deal… Then specified that it is NOT JVR for Schenn…
    Philly has a huge fan base and is a very hated team. Anything you put on here with the word flyers in it gets comments even if it’s very untrue… Recently I heard voracek with mez or coburn for bobby Ryan…. That would be the most idiotic deal for Philly possible so I hope that’s not true.

      Eklund, well the man gets about one right out of a 100, HAHA!

      Wait for Philly? Have you seen Bobby Ryan play? Him and Giroux might be the best line in the NHL. Cmon son. Also eklund is a retard
