*Everyone enjoy the All-Star weekend? The Metropolitan Division didn’t make it out of the first round of the game yesterday but our boy Claude had a goal and looked good in the Skills Competition on Saturday night. Our boy is one of the best in the game. [Philly.com]

*If you missed the Skills Comp, which is always the best part, here are some of the best moments. [ProHockeyTalk]

*We had some fun with our time off here at Broad Street Hockey, using this weekend to roll out our midseason 25 Under 25 ranking. We’ve made it from 25 to 21... [BSH]

*...from 20 down to 16... [BSH]

*...and from 15 to 11. Look for the bottom half of the top ten this afternoon! [BSH]

*As we get back to regular hockey business in Philadelphia, the Flyers are going to need to be ready for a tough road to the playoffs, if they’re going to get there. [Philly.com]

*Remember how good Travis Konecny has been? Here’s hoping that hasn’t cooled off over the week of downtime. To what, would you say, we should attribute this surge from Konecny? [Yahoo Sports]

*The Flyers have been off but the kids have been playing, and oh baby did Oskar Lindblom have a game over the weekend. [Sons of Penn]

*And now that he’s finally healthy, Philippe Myers is finally starting to get going on the blueline. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The playoff race is on and it couldn’t possibly be tighter in the Metro. Let’s take stock of what the enemies look like heading into the back half. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Jaromir Jagr was waived yesterday and it looks like he’ll head back to Europe. The end of an era, truly. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, the Olympics are only a couple of weeks out; are the games still worth watching without the professionals? DGB explores what we might be in store for, hockey-wise. [The New York Times]
