Morning Skate: Why no youth movement between the pipes?

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, with the NHL in full bloom.

*There is most definitely a youth movement across the NHL over the past few seasons, but that hasn’t really extended to goaltending. Interesting piece from Kevin Woodley.

*The Carolina Hurricanes make a bit of an unconventional decision and decide to split the captain duties between Jordan Staal and Justin Faulk.

*At opposite ends of the spectrum in their NHL careers, Connor McDavid and Patrick Marleau demonstrate the fine art of anticipation on opening night.

*The Columbus Blue Jackets got a taste last season under John Tortorella while getting back into the playoffs and now they want the whole damn thing.

*Solid piece from FOH (Friend of Haggs) Marc Divver about the good times that continue to roll for the Providence Friars.

*Kevin Shattenkirk is living out his dream playing the defenseman position for the New York Rangers, and his family is along for the ride.

*It sure sounds like Jiri Hudler needs to be put in timeout after reportedly causing a pretty nasty ruckus on a Delta flight.

 

*Nico Hischier is past the hype of being selected first overall in the draft, and now he’s looking forward to getting his NHL career going.

*For something completely different: Some cryptically teased spoilers for the Season 6 twists and turns on “Arrow”.


 

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.
