Matt Grzelcyk re-upped for four years with the Boston Bruins. Do the Bruins expect him to replace Torey Krug on the Bruins blue line. Joe Thornton may not believe in the San Jose Sharks anymore but their General Manager Doug Wilson does. What will the Florida Panthers look like next season? Will Denver serve as NHL bubble city if and when that season begins?

Before we get to those links though, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the end of an era. A legend in not only the hockey media world but sports media, in general, announced his retirement on Monday. Hockey Hall of famer, longtime NBC and New Jersey Devils play-by-play announcer  Doc Emerick is calling it a career after 46 years in the industry. Congrats on a great career Doc and thanks for always taking the time to talk puck!
