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.

Blues prospect Vladimir Tarasenko has been assigned to the AHL, but he might still return to Russia in the event of a lockout. (Jeremy Rutherford)

Martin Brodeur said the current CBA situation is “unbelievable.” He thought he was “home free” after the 2004-05 lockout, but he’s back in this situation again. (The Bergen Record)

Don’t expect Ryan Getzlaf to sign a new contract before the current CBA expires. (Orange County Register)

For that matter, Jamie Benn probably won’t sign on Saturday either. (Dallas News)

    Yes Marty, funny thing happens when you keep digging deeper and deeper into peoples pockets.

    At some point, they will aggressively resist and shut you down.

    Welcome to Economics 101 – enjoy.

    We hockey fans from all over the country want to thank the Players… for nothing… literally.

      @ pole-jism – You are not speaking for me or as the polls say at least 75-80 percent of all other hockey fans….and to use Brodeur as your example of players digging into the owners pockets (which is so stupid considering that it’s the owners that give the contracts f’head!) is absolutely ridiculous if you knew anything about hockey or this league!…

        Let’s try again… and I’ll use small words and brief phrases for you Tat… try to keep up.

        Players want more more more… Owners are done giving.

        Owners = pockets where money comes from.

        Players = paychecks from owners pockets.

        If Players were happy with salaries… owners would be happy with contracts.

        Then, we’d have a hockey season.

        Catch your breath… relax… then go ahead and start again from the top.

        Hope that wasn’t too much for you. It may take you a few times through to get it.
