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.

Meanwhile, the Karjala Tournament is underway in Europe and Finland surprised Russia with a shootout win thanks to Pekka Rinne. (

Tyler Seguin is feeling better about where the lockout is headed. Keep in mind he was 11 or 12 years-old during the last one. (

Just so Seguin isn’t out on a limb, Jets captain Andrew Ladd is hopeful as well. (Winnipeg Sun)

        Sounded like someone had been butt hurt for the past 40 years because that’s how long Canada has been clown stomping the Russians in pretty much anything hockey related.

        Hope you enjoyed that 1 lil win

        Oh yes, what’s the difference between my comment and yours? Nothing other than the fact that I didn’t reply and cry about yours.

        Funny huh?
