*Okay folks in just under two weeks the Flyers are going to get to draft a pretty awesome player and that's fun. So who'd we take in the SB Nation mock draft? Well, the one New Jersey didn't take, of course. [BSH]

*I still want Nico Hischier though. [SB Nation]

*The Flyers teased their new Adidas jersey on the twitter yesterday. It's orange! [CSN Philly]

*Ron Hextall has done some good things for the Flyers in his short time with the team, but the real work begins now. [BSH]

*And if the way he handled extending Shayne Gostisbehere is any indication, he's going to do a pretty good job. [BSH]

*Random thoughts from a sports writer. Always goes well. [Daily News]

*And a Flyers mailbag from one of the beats focuses on the draft, because what else? [Courier-Post]

*Because there is truly nothing good in this world, the Penguins are already the odds-on favorites to win the Cup next year. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And because the universe rewards evil, Marc-Andre Fleury did his team the courtesy of waiving his NMC so he can be exposed in the expansion draft. [Pensburgh]

*If the NHL does anything it really needs to rethink its methodology with regard to waiving off goals. It's pretty universally bad. [SB Nation]

*And finally, not everything in this world sucks. We have Claude Giroux and his puppies to bring us something resembling happiness. [BSH]
