Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

*Yesterday was fun. The league revealed the protect/expose list for all of the teams and Ron? Ron did good! [BSH]

*And here's a run down of the lists Vegas will be working off of from all 30 teams in the league. [ESPN]

*There were more than a few surprises once the lists came out. Here are the 12 biggest ones. [Puck Daddy]

*It would appear that the "handshake deal" we speculated about between the Flyers and Jordan Weal is real, as the sides are reportedly very close to a deal. [CSN Philly]

*In other very excellent hockey news, the salary cap is going up! That'll make life easier for everyone. [BSH]

*We are a mere FIVE (5) days from the Flyers picking #2 (up from #13) overall in the draft. Right now, today, the experts are thinking we get Patrick. [Inquirer]

*We also had a trade this weekend! Prior to the expansion draft lists being revealed was Saturday's trade freeze, and ahead of that Ron sent Nick Cousins and Merrick Madsen off to Arizona. [BSH]

*So Hexy had a good weekend but there's something we need to talk about going forward: enough already with the "patient approach". Time is now. Bring us all the kids. [Inquirer]

*you know what might me a good idea? A shorter NHL season. [The Peterborough Examiner]

*And finally, there's a draft party this week! Hosted by us at BSH and our friends at WIP! KEITH JONES IS COMING! And you should be too. [BSH]
