* Here are some more specific thoughts on each of Saturday's nine picks, and how they fit into the system: [BSH]

* And why the decision to trade down on Friday night was a good one: [BSH]

* Flyers second-rounder Wade Allison wrote some stuff about himself before he was drafted: [Players' Tribune]

* 10 thoughts on the Flyers' draft: [CSN Philly]

* Elsewhere in draftland: winners and losers! [Puck Daddy] [CBS] [Sportsnet]

* And draft grades. You'll like the Flyers' grade! [theScore]

* Banner weekend for USA Hockey, as a record 12 Americans were chosen in the first round and 55 were chosen overall: [USA Hockey]

* And, uh, what exactly was Columbus doing this weekend? Recapping their adventure which saw them shock everyone with their pick at No. 3: [Jackets Cannon]

* There were not many player trades made this past weekend, but the big one was essentially a two-part trade by the Canadiens that sent Lars Eller out and brought Andrew Shaw in: [Eyes on the Prize]

* Know those Kevin Shattenkirk rumors? Apparently the asking price there from St. Louis is pretty high! [Winging It In Motown]

* Moving on from the draft for now, today is the deadline for teams to extend qualifying offers to their restricted free agents. The Flyers gave Mark Alt a one-year extension on Saturday -- who else do they have to make a decision on by 5:00 p.m. today? [BSH]
