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.

Johnny Gaudreau is continuing his studies at Boston College. Apparently he’s studying communications, which is probably less taxing than dealing with the Anaheim Ducks and getting cross-checked in the back. Probably. (Flames)

A daring proposition: should the Montreal Canadiens try to trade for ... Phil Kessel? (The Hockey News)

One argument in favor of trading for Kessel: Montreal’s big guns let them down. (Sportsnet)

Looking for a CapGeek supplement? General Fanager is probably the best thing that’s come along so far. (General Fanager)

The Rangers feel like they have a lot in common with their upcoming opponent, the Lightning. (

Apparently it’s Alain Vigneault’s birthday. One would imagine his (waking up going after a Game 7 win) is happier than P.K. Subban’s (a day after Montreal was eliminated from the playoffs), eh?
