*Holy mother of shit the Flyers were looked upon favorably by both the hockey AND ping pong gods and moved up to the SECOND OVERALL PICK. This...this is really exciting. [BSH]

*Ron's pretty excited!! (As excited as he gets, I guess) [CSN Philly]

*Let's look again at TSN's draft ranking as it is suddenly very very relevant to our interests. [TSN]

*The Devils were the ones to, unbelievably, win the the first overall. And now that they have something to live for, they're thinking of trying to get back together with their ex, Ilya Kovalchuk. [Puck Daddy]

*Speaking of drafts, we wrapped up last week's Expansion Draft Extravaganza with our own picks for who we think the Flyers will protect and who they will lose. [BSH]

*It was a pretty dang good weekend for the Flyers organization all together, as the Phantoms came back from an 0-2 series deficit to force a game five against the Bears. RECAP! The kids ended up losing on Sunday but they gave a hell of a fight.

*Overall, it was a great season for the kids up in Allentown. [The Morning Call]

*Now that the SHL season is over we might see another promising prospect headed over to sign with the Flyers. [BSH]

*In case you didn't realize how weird these playoffs have been, the Edmonton Oilers are now the odds-on favorites to win the Stanley Cup. [Puck Daddy]

*If you've been watching the Penguins during these first two rounds, you've probably noticed that they keep lucking into late-round gems in guys like Jake Guentzel and Conor Sheary. It'd be nice to luck into one of those eh? [The Hockey News]

*And finally, for some reason, the entrenched hockey establishment seems dead set on removing ANY kind of fun from this game. This needs to stop. It's ridiculous. [SB Nation]
