*In addition to Ron Hextall's magic, our old pal Mike Richards found himself a home. Best of luck to him. [Japers' Rink]

*Big news yesterday (lol wrote this at like 3PM, leaving it for comedy's sake) was the release of the full roster for the 2016 All-Star game. Your only Flyer making the trip is Claude Giroux. You know who isn't going? Crosby. Ha. [BSH]

*Giroux spoke yesterday about being selected for the All-Star game. [Flyers]

*Obviously, now that we know who is an All-Star, it's important we talk about who got shafted. [Puck Daddy]

*Big big rumor coming from a big big source that Vincent Lecavalier wants to play and, as such, would be open to cutting ties with the Flyers. [BSH]

*Sam Gagner is hoping that playing with the Phantoms will revive his career. [Highland Park Hockey]

*Charlie brings us ten things to learn from that fun Montreal game the other night. [BSH]

*Ray Emery is thankful he's able to extend his career with the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate. [National Post]

*This is a few days old but worth a read: a look at high draft picks on Stanley Cup winning teams. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*Is Jonathan Drouin's trade demand drama going to become the new norm for young players? [Sportsnet]

*Dude, Don Cherry jersey night. [SB Nation]

*What the (BLANK)? with Mike Richards' new goalie Braden Holtby. [The Players' Tribune]

*And finally, this 90 year old man plays hockey three nights a week. I bet he has stories. [TSN]
