* Even with Provorov, Patrick, Hagg, Sanheim, Leier and co on the team the Flyers still have a pretty darn loaded prospect pool. Let’s see how those guys are doing in the AHL, Canadian Juniors or in Europe with our prospect report. [BSH]

* Jori Lehtera will go down as a player fans were not excited for, actually he was quite the opposite — a big contract and not a lot of point production, two things that should never go together for a forward. But after six games, Jori has worked his way into the Flyers line-up. [Courier Post]

* Sean Avery, that guy was pretty bad. But he wrote a book, so maybe it’ll be an interesting read? [TSN]

* Speaking of pretty bad guys, we also have Antti Niemi... that is unless you’re Jeff Carter. Actually, lets not go there. Anywho, after giving up sixteen goals in three games the Penguins have waived their back up goalie. [Pensburgh]

* On that note should the Golden Knights snag Niemi up off of waivers? [Knights on Ice ]

* Quietly is a word that gets tossed around a lot in hockey... this player quietly did this or that. Well, our friend Steven Stamkos quietly scored his 600th career NHL point. [NHL]
