*The Flyers are back tomorrow! Against the stupid Devils!! Seems like a good time to finish up our midterm report cards. We’ve got the depth defensemen... [BSH]

*... and the goalies. [BSH]

*Let’s bring in another version of the report card for this team. []

*The Flyers’ prospect pool remains on the deeper side, and Charlie has taken the time to do a mid-season ranking of the 20 who are currently the best of the bunch. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of, Meltzer takes a look at That Frost Character. [Flyers]

*Amanda Elliott, wife of Brian, seems like an incredibly great person. And lucky for us, she’s in Philly now. [NBC Sports Philly]

*We’re going to say “snub” a lot today. I’m sorry. Do you feel any Flyers were snubbed when it came to All-Star Game selection? [NBC Sports Philly]

*So besides Sean Couturier and Jakub Voracek, which players are the biggest casualties of the All-Star game format that only really allows for one player per team to go? [Puck Daddy]

*And what if we replace one All-Star with a snub. Bet it might improve things. [Vice Sports]

*More snubs!!! [SB Nation]

*Hockey Canada released their Olympic roster yesterday. It’s kind of fun to see these guys who would’ve never had this opportunity fill out these teams, eh? [Hockey Canada]

*Our old pal Peter Forsberg thinks the Olympic hockey tournament will still be a high-quality event, even without NHLers. I’m actually starting to get pretty excited about it myself. [Yahoo Sports]

*Unbelievably, the Vegas Golden Knights trademark thing is still an issue. [ProHockeyTalk]

*We learned yesterday that Pierre McGuire is fighting cancer. Thoughts are with him. [USA Today]

*And finally, no better way to ease your way into the weekend and get pumped for the return of Flyers hockey than with a new episode of BSH Radio! [BSH]
