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.

    isn’t it funny that in the NFL most players that suffer concussions play the following week,but in the NHL it takes weeks sometimes months to come back.sounds like somebody doesn’t really care about the players overall health,they only care about winnning.

      NHL teams rely on insurance claims to pay out a good chunk of basic player salaries and 100% of performance bonuses. Mario was off the hook for Sid’s contract while he was “healing” and still had Malkin and Staal. It’s a joke.

    Gotta love when Pros follow the other sports enough to comment.

    ATTENTION FRIENDS !!!

    Please note that someone has now begun posting here under the erroneous names of “blomfelb” and “Ib4joey” ! Of course these names are fake and they should in no way be confused with either “yours truly” or blomfeld. blomfeld already has a good handle on who’s behind this little caper. But for good measure, he has also asked his old friend “Stransky” to take a look into this (ie: Stransky is a physicist and an expert in forensic causation analysis) and he’s assured blomfeld that he’ll have the name of this imposter within 48 hours, with a margin for error of “plus or minus” 2.5 hours. Once this imposter has been identified, then suffice it to say that he/she will be “dealt with” quickly and ruthlessly.
