We're pleased to welcome one of the very best announcers in sports back to the AA Podcast – the voice of the NHL, Mike "Doc" Emrick. While most sports fans think of Thanksgiving as football time, NBC has a national broadcast on Black Friday between the Bruins and Rangers. We catch up with Doc looking ahead to that broadcast as well as some other early season storylines including…

-How realignment has affected the NHL so far this season.
-Why there's such a disparity between the Eastern and Western Conference.
-Why Thanksgiving is a bellwether in the standings and which team has surprised to this point.
-The concussion lawsuit filed by former players and Doc's surprising answer as to why fighting will ultimately be eliminated from hockey.
-Looking ahead to the Bruins-Rangers game on Friday.
-His thoughts on calling the Winter Olympics in Sochi this winter and the increased number of spectacles throughout the hockey season.
