While half of the NHL is gearing up for the playoffs and the unique playoff setup, teams that won’t be in the playoffs are making news behind the scenes, including the newly minted Seattle Kraken. Seattle is still looking for a head coach and the New Jersey Devils who could revisit a new front office hire.

There are rumblings that Seattle General Manager Ron Francis would turn to one of two former teammates, one of which helped him win a Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins, to run the Kraken bench if either coach becomes available.

There are several more situations that hockey execs and insiders are closely watching.

Will John Chayka resurface with the New Jersey Devils? And OTR has the industry scuttle on what will happen to the NHL on NBC crew now that Turner owns the second NHL broadcast package.

It’s in the latest ‘Off The Record.’
