PHT Morning Skate: Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin pranked by moms

1 Comment

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.

Jackie Seguin and Heather Benn got a measure of revenge on their sons Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn recently.

The pair played a little Mother’s Day prank on their sons as a payback for the Valentine’s Day joke the Stars’ forwards pulled off in February.

According to ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio, the Buffalo Bills sale to Sabres’ owner Terry Pegula is expected to be rubber stamped this week.

Florio’s sources indicate that the purchase of the franchise is on the agenda for this week’s NFL ownership meetings in New York.

The Buffalo News reporter Tim Graham told Florio on his podcast PFT Live that it’s expected Terry Pegula’s wife, Kim Pegula, will be in charge of the football operations.

Pegula purchased the holding company, which owns the Sabres and the First Niagara Center in February 2011.

It’s Buffalo Sabres day on PHT

Throughout the month of August, PHT will be dedicating a day to all 30 NHL clubs. Today’s team? The Buffalo Sabres.

Things haven’t exactly gone how owner Terry Pegula hoped they would when he bought the team. Instead of challenging for and winning a Stanley Cup, the team has missed the playoffs the last two seasons.

Now the team enters a season where they’re still not sure how long they’ll have Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek to kick around. Both guys are unrestricted free agents after the season and will have trade rumors floating around them all year. Who said Buffalo was a boring place?

Offseason recap

Instead of diving head-first into the free agent pile, GM Darcy Regier instead bought out forward Nathan Gerbe (who signed with Carolina afterward). One deal Regier did make was with New Jersey to bring back Henrik Tallinder to try and recapture the chemistry he had with Tyler Myers. Considering how many more years and dollars they’ve got committed to him, it’s not the worst move to make.

In the NHL Draft they went with big Finnish defender Rasmus Ristolainen who may end up challenging for a job in the NHL right away. Buffalo’s blue line is a crowded house, but they love Ristolainen’s style.

All eyes will stay on Miller and Vanek, however. Buffalo better hope they show something in the new Atlantic Division to make both guys think about staying in Western New York.
