Morning Skate: Doc Emrick honors Dave Strader


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while buckling up for a great day of Boston sports. 
-- What a wonderful, poignant tribute from one great hockey guy to another as NBC play-by-play man Doc Emrick honors Dave Strader with a beautiful remembrance piece between periods of last night’s Penguins/Blues telecast. 

 -- Here are four things we learned from opening night of the NHL season, including that the Toronto Maple Leafs are really, really explosive. 

-- Good piece from FOH (Friend of Haggs) Mike Harrington about new Buffalo Sabres GM Jason Botterill, and the hockey family that he grew up in

-- Some really great stuff with the TSN pieces done with Paul Kariya going back over a storied NHL career that was marred by some pretty nasty concussions. 

 -- Jaromir Jagr makes it official that he will play his 25th NHL season after signing a one-year deal with the Calgary Flames. Mullets for everybody! 
-- For something completely different: Just in time for season 2 of Stranger Things, it looks like Netflix is raising their prices
