NHL: St. Louis Blues at Philadelphia Flyers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

*Claude Giroux is an All-Star! Hell yes, baby. [BSH]

*We’re nearing the end of this infernal break, but before the boys are back we’ve got a few more of them to judge. Let’s start with the good stuff: our top defensemen. [BSH]

*And then, the rookies on the blueline. Who, when compared, are actually really interesting. [BSH]

*Claude Giroux is enjoying himself this season, in case that wasn’t evident. []

*Our pal Charlie took a look at some manually tracked Flyers’ microdata for the season and discovered a few interesting trends. [The Athletic]

*Would you like the know what Carter Hart has been up to since he won a gold medal? Me too. []

*If nothing else, Tyrell Goulbourne’s call up has left him with a pretty cool story. [The Morning Call]

*And some of the other prospects, because why not. [Philly Is Flyer]

*Chris Pronger seems to be doing well in retirement, which is just so great to see. [Courier-Post]

*So...which NHL GMs are on the hot seat? Anyone missing, in your opinion? [ESPN]

*And finally, the NHL’s offside review has been nothing but a terrible mess since it was implemented, and it’s gotta go. [ProHockeyTalk]
