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.

Florida Panthers NHLPA representative Mike Weaver thinks that travel will be “by far the worst in Florida” if the current realignment plan goes forward. (Sun Sentinel)
