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.

John Scott was bumming out pretty hard about leaving Chicago. I think he’ll do just fine in New York City with the Rangers. (

Jamie McGinn’s tale of being told he was traded is pretty sad. (Working The Corners)

James van Riemsdyk was just happy to not be sent anywhere yesterday. (

Oh hey, look. Canadian writers are piling on about Winnipeg being better than Atlanta. Again. (Edmonton Sun)

Tanner Glass does have some perks living in Winnipeg, however. (Winnipeg Sun)

Scott Howson is going to eat a ton of blame for not getting Rick Nash sent out of town and then calling him out for asking for said trade. Nick Cotsonika says Howson did right to stick up for his team. (Yahoo!)

Pete DeBoer was pretty happy with the penalties David Clarkson took last night. Hope he can live with a possible suspension too. (The Star-Ledger)

Nicklas Lidstrom and Kyle Quincey are feeling banged up. Brendan Smith is on the way to prove he can stick around. (Detroit Free Press)

The Jets are calling last night’s loss to Edmonton the “worst of the year.” (Winnipeg Sun)

Al MacInnis is now “Forever A Flame” after being honored last night. (Sportsnet)
