Morning Skate: Luongo continues to address Parkland shootings

BHere are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while absolutely not escaping the snow in North Carolina over the last 24 hours. It’s snowing here too, baby.
 
--Interesting piece from ESPN.com wondering if Alex Ovechkin, who scored his 600th career goal Monday, can match, and eventually surpass, the 894 career goals for Wayne Gretzky. Ovie certainly has his strengths and weaknesses as a player, but his individual greatness can absolutely never be denied.

 -- Bobby Ryan knows he’s probably going to be part of any Erik Karlsson trade this summer, so he’s prepared to leave the Ottawa Senators.
 
-- Interesting piece theorizing that Evander Kane is going to find better success, and perhaps a more welcoming environment, in San Jose with the Sharks than he did in either Winnipeg or Buffalo in his last two stops.
 
-- Will Connor McDavid win the Hart Trophy this season playing for an absolutely terrible Edmonton Oilers team? The answer is no, no and more no.
 
-- Roberto Luongo continues the discussion about the Parkland shootings, what we can all do to keep the conversation going and his season in Florida.
 
-- For something completely different: Could it be that a revival of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is going to happen? It’s certainly the right nostalgic climate for it, but it’s all at the whim of Joss Whedon.

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.
