Morning Skate: Talking B's D and goalies


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while the Bruins’ dads are somewhere recovering from an awesome time with their hockey-playing sons.

*In the interest of self-promotion, here is my radio hit from Toucher and Rich on Tuesday where I touch on Boston’s goaltending and defense situations. Long story short, both weren't very good against the Predators. 

*Alex Ovechkin is supporting his fellow Russian athletes after they’ve all been banned from competing in the Winter Olympics.

*Erik Karlsson and Drew Doughty both know what they’re worth in NHL free agency, and absolutely aren’t going to settle for anything less.

*Looks like the Tampa Bay Lightning are drilling down on a deal that’s going to keep them in the area for a long, long time.

*These are perfectly good Star Wars hockey jerseys. But are they the nicest Star Wars-themed jerseys that you’ll ever see from the San Antonio Rampage? I don’t know about all that.

*For something completely different: Speaking of Star Wars, this story of Mark Hamill, dressed as Luke Skywalker, visiting a terminally ill boy is pretty great. That’s somebody with the proper perspective on things.
