*Guess who else got a new job?? Craig Berube! [ProHockeyTalk]

*So the league's buyout window is open. Think the Flyers have any plans to take advantage? [CSN Philly]

*The Flyers are absolute idiots for choosing Neuvirth over Mason and everyone knows it. [The Hockey News]

*Check in on the Flyers' draft strategy with this pretty great Q&A. [Metro Philly]

*Keith Primeau's kid is trying to make it to the NHL in a very different way than his dad did. [CSN Philly]

*This weekend we'll get to see everyone's expansion draft protection lists which is going to be suuuuuuper fun. Ahead of that, a mock draft! [The Washington Post]

*High draft picks don't get traded very often, and DGB brings us ten reasons why. [Sportsnet]

*So do any of you actually blame players who refuse to waive NMCs? Seems to make more sense to blame the idiot GMs who offered them in the first place, no? [The Hockey News]
