PHT Morning Skate: When Metta World Peace met the Stanley Cup

Oct 22, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

Metta World Peace and the Stanley Cup

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.

While the L.A. Kings aren’t partying with the Stanley Cup, it gave the L.A. Lakers a chance to see it and Metta World Peace (aka: Ron Artest) ate almonds out of it and wondered if George Washington ever touched it. Sorry Metta, that’s a “no.” (Twitter via Arash Markazi)

So how about the Edmonton Oilers’ blue line depth? Is there any? (Edmonton Journal)

Goalie fight! Senators prospect Robin Lehner had himself a feisty weekend in Binghamton dropping the gloves with the Lightning’s Riku Helenius in the AHL. (Senators Extra)

Is Mikko Koivu off to play in Finland? (Rotoworld)

Here’s a fun story about the Maple Leafs team doctor who made Stanley Cup history. (Globe And Mail)

Here’s more fretting over whether or not the fans will return after this lockout. (Edmonton Journal)

FYI: Today is Day 37 of the lockout. “37? In a row?”

    MWP may be many things, but one thing he isn’t is, is boring.

    First person in a photo in a VERY long time that is actually reading some of the names on the Cup.

    That says something special about the man.

      Have you had the chance to do the same? Amazing experience. I was living in So Cal when the Ducks won the cup, and was fortunate enough to hold the cup in my hands on the beach in Huntington and get my picture taken with the cup and cup keeper Mike Holt. I can still feel the coolness of the cup. It felt unbelievable….

        I didn’t have time. As a Kings STH, I got the chance to have a pic with the Cup earlier this month. It was an awesome experience just being next to it, but unfortunately, they only gave us mere seconds…didn’t have time to even get a shot at reading some names. 😦 Still, a great experience.

    Been to at HOF in TO a few times and its always amazing to read the names. I was able to zoom in on my cup pic to read named from way back. But nothing like holding it.
