Morning Skate: Pacioretty on trading block in Montreal?


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while wishing everybody a safe and happy New Year!

*The rumors are beginning to swirl with the Montreal Canadiens and Max Pacioretty potentially being made available. Boy, it’s beginning to look like they traded the wrong player in initially deciding between PK Subban and Pacioretty, isn’t it?

*You’ve got to love David Pastrnak fooling around at morning skate and keeping everybody loose prior to Saturday night’s game in Ottawa.

*Jack Eichel is getting his right real spotlight NHL moment with the Sabres involvement in the Winter Classic, but he isn’t approaching it that way.

*Brady Tkachuk is making a name for himself with Team USA at the World Juniors, but clearly also has some family history to live up to as well.

*The recent play of Sergei Bobrovsky should be raising some concerns with a Blue Jackets team that needs him to be brilliant every night.

*Clayton Keller has enjoyed a brilliant first three months to his rookie season, but it’s looked lately like he needs to break through the rookie wall.

*For something completely different: Remembering all of the legends that we lost in 2017 in another rough year.
