And now that the AHL has officially called it on the remainder of their season, it felt like time for a post-mortem. [BSH]

*James van Riemsdyk spoke with the local media today about all matter of hockey-related things, chief among them his role in figuring out how the league will format things when it returns. [NBC Sports Philly]

*This 24-team playoff bracket situation seems like the safe bet to take at this point, but if they do restructure this way let’s hope they don’t get the bright idea to make the change permanent. [Inquirer]

*Remember the All-Star Game that never was? [ProHockeyTalk]

*Yahoo Sports is running through the Top 25 Under 25 all-sports wide, and a hockey player has made the list! [Yahoo Sports]

*DGB looks at the single worst downgrade made in each team’s history. [The Athletic]
