Sarah Avampato (Locked On Kings) and Tom Gazzola (TSN 1260) look at some teams that find themselves already behind the pack and the season hasn't even started yet. The Chicago Blackhawks, after trading Brandon Saad and letting Corey Crawford walk in free agency, finally admit that they're rebuilding (even if apparently no one told their captain beforehand). The San Jose Sharks have lost an icon as Joe Thornton goes to chase a Cup in Toronto on a team that absolutely no one thinks is a serious threat to win the Stanley Cup next season. The Arizona Coyotes' new GM says he wants his team to compete, but then goes and signs a bunch of grinders. It's all very confusing. Plus, we say goodbye to Doc Emrick, who has retired after 47 years of broadcasting.
