*R.J. Umberger is bad and he makes everyone else bad and he shouldn't be playing. Here's why. [Sons of Penn]

*The Flyers have had problems all year in the goal scoring department and Ron Hextall could probably make some moves to fix that. But is it worth it? [Inquirer]

*Speaking of goal scoring woes, starting better would help. [NBC Sports]

*Revisiting the Sean Couturier extension. [Pattison Ave]

*The Flyers defense is improving. Which is weird for us. [Flyerdelphia]

*The Phantoms recently got some bad news about veteran forward Tim Brent. [Highland Park Hockey]

*So with last night's game in the books the league is into the All-Star break...what are you excited about seeing this weekend? [Puck Daddy]

*TSN's annual poll of NHL coaches has been done; check out the results. [TSN]
