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.

Habs coach Michel Therrien sat down for a long Q & A with the Montreal Gazette. One of the highlights comes when he discusses how he doesn’t want to make P.K. Subban a better player – he wants to make him a better person, too. (Video, transcript)
