*The Flyers are up in Western New York this evening to take on the Buffalo Sabres. Puck drops at 730PM; in the meantime enjoy this fun article about how the Sabres are completely wasting Jack Eichel. [Puck Daddy]

*Oh great, Brayden Schenn tried to kill Steve Mason. Thanks a lot, dude. [CSN Philly]

*Speaking of Steve Mason, he's getting back to his old form. You know, the good one. Still loving that Neuvirth signing, folks! [Inquirer]

*Reports out of practice yesterday indicated that Travis Konecny was going to be staying on the fourth line, so I guess Dave Hakstol is going to "ease him back in." [Sons of Penn]

*Some people choose to believe that this team might possibly make the playoffs. Which is technically possible, but like...not at all probable. [Daily News]

*So uh...signing Filppula is a slap in the face to Sean Couturier? Hmm? [Inquirer]

*And now, to the future: what German Rubtsov's new contract means for the team. [CSN Philly]

*The Vegas Golden Knights have their first player! [Puck Daddy]

*Yesterday was the first day of the GM meetings, at which it doesn't seem like anything particularly interesting is being discussed. [USA Today]

*This is a really interesting article on how tough economic times are affecting local hockey teams in Alaska. [The Hockey News]

*And finally, if you do nothing else today, please read this highly enjoyable oral history of the epic Flyers-Senators brawl that happened almost exactly 13 years ago. [Vice Sports]
