Morning Skate: Hamilton settles into quiet life in Calgary


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while NHL training camps wind to a close soon.

*The quiet life and times of Dougie Hamilton is a hit in Calgary after an adjustment period following his departure from the Bruins.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) Adrian Dater sounds a few reasons for optimism with the Colorado Avalanche, though I can’t imagine too many until they’ve cleared up the Matt Duchene mess.

*The St. Louis Blues are considering a run at Jaromir Jagr as the ageless Czech wonder is still looking for NHL work at this late date.

*Young stars are finding new and innovative ways to train for an NHL predicated on faster, stronger and more skilled players.

*PK Subban says that he’ll never protest during a national anthem and the Nashville D-man deserves all the respect in the world for doing what’s right for him. Just like the pro athletes that are deciding to kneel deserve respect and understanding for the protest they’re making. It’s a personal choice for each and every player, particularly the black NHL players who have always been a small fraternity within the league.  


*Jordan Nolan is grateful to keep his NHL dreams going closer to home in Buffalo where his dad was the former coach of the Sabres.

*For something completely different: Good to see the original Wonder Woman telling James Cameron to shut up.
