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.

It’s been a while – like, at least a week – since Canadians angrily chastised Gary Bettman. Jack Todd covers that base heartily and explains how the game will move on even as the NHL is stuck in legal limbo. (Montreal Gazette via Kukla’s Korner)

If Todd’s venting wasn’t enough, Puck Daddy presents another round of fans venting. (Puck Daddy)

Adrian Dater equates the NHL to Vermont and Donald Fehr to New Hampshire. (The Denver Post)

The NHL might be following in some of the NBA’s lockout footsteps, yet Jonathan Willis lays out some of the “illuminating” differences. (The Edmonton Journal)

Earl Sleek counts down his favorite multi-part/multi-panel cartoons from Battle of California. Some might be (cartoonishly) NSFW. (Battle of California)

Could the St. Louis Blues be in a little trouble once the lockout winds down? (St. Louis Game Time)

Bobby Hull apparently had a little bit of Rodney Dangerfield in him. (Greatest Hockey Legends)
