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.

Baiting Leafs fans can be easy to do. Doing it over All-Star Game voting though? For one Ottawa Sun columnist, this was his moment to strike while the iron was hot. Sigh. (Ottawa Sun)

The Flyers are really hoping Kimmo Timonen’s wrist isn’t hurt badly. They can’t afford (in many ways) to have him be hurt long term. (CSNPhilly.com)

The IIHF is launching a concussion task force to get to the bottom of things and figure out how why the game is going through such an epidemic with these injuries. (The Globe And Mail)

It’s hard to impress Jonathan Toews, but he liked a lot of what he saw out of rookie Andrew Shaw last night. (CSNChicago.com)
