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.

Marvin Miller was a giant in sports labor, changing it to what we know it as today. His passing at the age of 95 has NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr thinking back on how important he was. (NHLPA)

If the NHL season is wiped out by the lockout, Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson wants to play in Europe. (Ottawa Sun)

ESPN’s John Buccigross had a player tell him the league has a 48-game schedule worked out and ready to go in January. Bet they copied the one they had in 1995. (@Buccigross)

Lightning prospect J.T. Brown is doing really well in the AHL this year. (Tampa Tribune)

The Sharks sent out their first round of season ticket refund checks. (Working The Corners)

News of the always: Tyler Seguin owns in Switzerland. (Edmonton Journal)

Speaking of Alfie, he says “every player is pissed off” about the lockout. Well, no kidding. (Ottawa Sun)

Today marks Day 74 of the NHL lockout and Captain America John Carlson just cannot be pleased.

    to me a 48 game schedule would be a joke.i for one would not want my team to win the Cup during a shortened season,while others won it and deserved it fully by playing through a full season.just my opinion on it though.

      Once the playoffs start the regular season means nothing.

      As for copying the 1995 schedule, sign me up.. can’t wait to see a Whalers / Nordiques game.

    In listening to Donald Fehr on Sirius, it appears we”ll have an CBA agreement forthcoming very shortly. Both parties could be compromising enough to establish a deal. They could capitalize on it, in memory of the great Marvin Miller.

      I wish I could believe that, unfortunately the last 4 months have happened.
