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.

Leave it to Sidney Crosby to provide a little bit more juice to a charity game in his hometown of Cole Harbour. (The Chronicle Herald)

Today marks Day 105 of the NHL lockout. 19 players in NHL history have scored 105 points in a season. The last to do it? Dany Heatley with the Ottawa Senators in 2006-07.

    Are you sure about that?

    Here’s the headline from the Ken Campbell article:
    “Thanks to Donald Fehr, NHL negotiating against itself…and losing”

    Yeah, pretty sure Ken Campbell is saying exactly the opposite of what you said he’s saying.

    Um…Malkin had 109 points last year. Get your facts straight.

      He is talking about finishing the season with 105 points.

  4. messiahleper2012 - Dec 29, 2012 at 10:34 AM

    As well as Crosby and Oveckin having 109 in the 2009-10 season, Henrik Sedin had 112 points that season as well.

  5. messiahleper2012 - Dec 29, 2012 at 10:37 AM

    …as well in 2008-09 season Malkin had 113 points, Ovechkin had 110; in 2007-08 season Ovechkin had 112, Malkin had 106 points.

  6. whatthepuck2012 - Dec 29, 2012 at 10:44 AM

    …none of which equal 105. He’s talking about finishing with exactly 105 points.

  7. messiahleper2012 - Dec 29, 2012 at 10:48 AM

    Well poorly worded on his part. Generally, a fact stated like that usually include those who exceeded it as well. i.e. players who scored 50 goals last season, I’d include Stamkos, even though he scored more then 50

      Yeah, I’d agree it could have been worded better. It looks like he’s writing a series of these; I think 102 points was yesterday or the day before.

    What a joke eh? All these guys above arguing about “so and so” getting 105 points, or 109, or 112, etc … almost like a bunch of buzzards fighting over the scraps of a carcass or something? The bottom line friends is that our glorious LA Kings “annihilated” the very best which the Eastern Conference produced last year! And by doing so, we are the reigning Stanley Cup Champions and the “greatest” team in the world today! And if that isn’t enough, then check this out … we’re going to do it all again come this summer !!! :)
