Morning Skate: Welcome to Cehptember

The calendar has turned from August to September, and that can only mean one thing: it’s Peter Cehlarik time!

Nearly all of you fine commenters look forward to Cehlarik season throughout the year, so I’m pleased to inform you that it is, in fact, here.


Okay, fine.

I’m not doing that again this year. I just realized it was September and couldn’t resist.

The days of Cehptember, that glorious month featuring a Cehlarik post for every weekday, will remain but a fond memory.

Yesterday’s buzz in the hockey world surrounded the fate of San Jose Sharks center Tomas Hertl, he who is likely to be the only challenger to David Pastrnak’s reign of Czech supremacy in the coming years.

Kevin Kurz of The Athletic wrote a piece about Hertl’s uncertain future, so Twitter went wild with Hertl trade speculation.

He’s certainly a valuable asset for a San Jose Sharks team that likely won’t be very good for a while, but he’s also someone the team could try to re-tool around.

Or they could trade him to the Bruins for, say, a third-round pick and maybe a conditional seventh. Fair for both sides.

Today’s discussion topic

I didn’t know that my man Peter Cehlarik made a move to the KHL this offseason after putting up 40 points in 45 Swedish Hockey League games last season.

Having said that, you (for whatever imaginary reason) have to move to a new country: where are you going?
