Morning Skate: Beleskey a winner and loser in free agency


Here are all the links fit to be shared from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading with Matt Beleskey and Jimmy Hayes set to meet the Boston media at 4 p.m. this afternoon.

*The Washington Post has everything you’d want to know about new Capitals winger T.J. Oshie after the trade with St. Louis.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) Greg Wyshynski takes a big rip into Steve Simmons for his hit piece on Phil Kessel, and the Toronto bloggers think they’ve disproven his anecdote about Phil the Thrill hitting the hot dog stand every day.

*PHT writer Jason Brough has Don Maloney preaching honesty as the best policy with the Arizona Coyotes, and their current situation in limbo. 

*New Bruins winger Matt Beleskey is both a winner and a loser in Grantland’s winners and losers from the July 1 opening of free agency. 

*Tyler Seguin leads off the ESPN Magazine “Body” issue with some racy photos, and says one of the first things he wants to do when he retires from the NHL is run the Boston Marathon. 

*Mass product and BC standout Noah Hanifin was, as expected, the center of attention at orientation camp for the Carolina Hurricanes. 

*Russian scorer Alex Radulov has plenty of skill and plenty of erratic behavior off the ice, and wants to make a return to the NHL.   

*For something completely different: in taking desperation to a new level, a man is willing to pay anybody $10,000 to set him up with a girlfriend.
