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.

Kings captain, Stanley Cup winner and New York native Dustin Brown got a delivery package… with a special message a FedEx guy/Rangers fan. (Twitter)

It’s now been one full year since the Tyler Seguin-to-Dallas trade. Who’s won it so far? (Bleacher Report)

Mississauga native Daniel Winnik was a fan of Wendel Clark, Doug Gilmour and Felix Potvin growing up. So yeah, he’s stoked about signing in Toronto. (Toronto Star)

    Brown’s FedEx package – too funny! Gotta wonder whether the FedEx delivery person just got him/herself fired.

      Rattus Norvegicus …

      One of the largest muroids, it is a brown or grey rodent with a body up to 25 cm (10 in) long, and a similar tail length; the male weighs on average 350 g (12 oz) and the female 250 g (9 oz). Thought to have originated in northern China, this rodent has now spread to all continents except Antarctica, and is the dominant rat in Europe and much of North America, making it by at least this particular definition the most successful mammal on the planet after humans. With rare exceptions, the brown rat lives wherever humans live, particularly in urban areas and on sports internet sites.

    Fired?? Absolutely not. FedEx just got hooked up with free advertising from Dustin Brown.

    Where’s Blomfeld? Must still be in the lady’s room adjusting his tampon.

    I strongly dislike Dustin Brown but that was great. I hope that guy didn’t get fired…and as Pone pointed out above it’s free advertising

      I can understand disliking Dustin Brown if you’re not a Kings fan, but if he was on your team, you’d love him.

      • wutangwild - Jul 30, 2014 at 8:50 PM

        Oh I know…this is coming from a fan of the team that employs Matt Cooke.

    FU FED-EX !!!

    The question here is why did AEG use Fed-Ex to send a package to Captain Brown instead of UPS ? For an intra-state ‘next day’ delivery, Fed-Ex rates are at least 22.6% higher than those of UPS and their ‘on-time’ delivery performance is only 86.2% vs 99.8% with UPS. Anyway, the last time I checked ‘mail tampering’ was a federal offense which carries a ‘minimum’ prison term of 8-10 years. So suffice it to say that this fool is ‘done’ like dinner ! LOL ! On the bright side however, he won’t be missing much with his stupid Rangers and their ‘tendency’ to win a Stanley Cup once every 75 years ! :)

    WHAT CAN BROWN DO FOR YOU ?

    Well how about ‘personally’ captain your team to SC victory two out of the past three years !!! :) :)

      ” … the last time I checked ‘mail tampering’ was a federal offense … ”

      It’s FedEx (private), and not the U.S. mail (federal government). Don’t you ever ‘think’ before you ‘write’??

      Leave it to blomfeld to ruin what was a nice set of comments with his drivel.

      • wutangwild - Jul 31, 2014 at 12:49 AM

        Was gonna say the same thing. It’s also clear that Blom has three accounts (at least). Look at his upvotes and the downvotes for you and 19to77…quite peculiar, no?

        Rattus Pattus …

        One of the most ‘vile’ muroids, Rattusn Pattus is a brown or grey rodent with a body up to 25 cm (10 in) long, and a similar tail length; the male weighs on average 350 g (12 oz) and the female 250 g (9 oz). Thought to have originated in northern China, this rodent has now spread to all continents except Antarctica, and is the dominant rat in Europe and much of North America, making it by at least this particular definition the most successful mammal on the planet after humans.

        @wutangwild – blomfeld has clearly lost whatever there was of his mind.

      And lo, the twisted panties make their appearance. Hang on, let me try to look surprised.
