Morning Skate: Have a laugh with the NBC Sports Boston Camera Guys

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while happy that hockey is back. 
 
-- If you haven’t already checked this out, some really funny stuff with the NBC Sports Boston Camera Guys and one of their past interactions with former Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli. (I’ve seen Glenn Gleason on the ice, and he’s got that Johnny Boychuk-esque heavy shot.)

-- Puck Daddy previews the Atlantic Division for the upcoming season, and it sure looks like it’s going to be a parity-filled division

-- Gary Bettman says the NHL is nowhere near ready to add Seattle as an expansion team as Vegas gets ready to join the league this week. 
 
-- The Vancouver Canucks have sent top prospect Olli Juolevi back to Finland in order to find his game after an unimpressive training camp. 
 
-- In a nice touch to his NHL career cut short by MS, Bryan Bickell is going to sign a one-day contract and officially retire as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks
 
-- Erik Karlsson knows that his Ottawa Senators have a tough season ahead of them, particularly now that there are some expectations after what they did in the playoffs. 
 
-- The NHL.com experts and pundits weigh in with their predictions for the 2017-18 season, and I don’t think any one of them predicted Stanley Cup glory for your Boston Bruins. 
 
-- For something completely different: The Vegas story is obviously an awful, tragic and sad one, but it’s these kind of stories of strangers helping each other that always makes you realize the good people always outweigh the bad in this world. 
 

Morning Skate: Jagr still going, but not in the NHL

Morning Skate: Jagr still going, but not in the NHL

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while welcoming Marcus Smart back into the fold. Good contract for a guy that’s probably worth more to the Celtics than he would be to just about anybody else.

*It looks like Jaromir Jagr will play some hockey next season, but it also looks like it won’t be in the NHL for the surefire Hall of Famer.

*A list of the greatest NHL players to wear each jersey number with a good idea who the choices would be for No. 77 and No. 4…at the very least. This is a good companion piece to the list that we just put out for the best Bruins player to wear each jersey number that the team ever issued.

*The cyberbullying case between Melina Karlsson and Mike Hoffman’s girlfriend continues with more legal filings as both sides attempt to find out the truth.

*Pro Hockey Talk has an entertaining, wide-ranging Q&A session with PK Subban about any number of topics involving the Nashville D-man.

*Da Beauty League is once again getting into full swing in Minnesota for many familiar NHL players looking to stay in skating shape.

*For something completely different: The 2018 TV season hasn’t been good for new hit shows in their second season.
