*Yesterday the Flyers agreed to multi-year terms with former Maple Leafs/Marlies defenseman T.J. Brennan. Did you know he's from South Jersey?! [Flyers]

*The move seems to cement the idea that Hexy wants to surround our prospect talent with capable vets in order to boost their development. Fun side effect is that the Phantoms are going to be goooooooood next season. [BSH]

*Lehigh Valley also added a forward and a goalie yesterday. [Phantoms Hockey]

*One of the Flyers recent draftees, Wade Allison, filled out an NHL job application for funsies. [The Players' Tribune]

*Most of the big name free agents are off the board, but here are five that could end up being good bargains for the team that picks them up. [ProHockeyTalk]

*DGB on which teams are under a spotlight this offseason. [Sportsnet]

*One thing the offseason is good for is random lists and rankings. Like, for example, the thirteen best American NHLers of all time. [Puck Daddy]

*And also this list of ten active players who may end up playing their whole career with a single team. [The Hockey News]

*Six teams have made almost zero noise so far this offseason and it's weird. [Puck Daddy]

*This look at the Maple Leafs shows how small mistakes made by a front office over time will completely derail a team for a long, long time. [NHL Numbers]

*And finally, in case you're in the market for a vacation home, some pictures of Mr. Snider's incredible estate in California. The man had taste. [BSH]
