*If we’ve got to wait three entire days between games then I think we’ve earned a little wild trade speculation. [BSH]

*Have you been wondering how John Boruk ranks the recent performance of your favorite Flyers players? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Would you describe the Flyers in their current state as both fragile and resilient? Seems like a less-than-ideal way to be. []

*There continues to be a perceived story around the fact that the Flyers haven’t had a single fight so far this season but if you ask me it’s much ado about nothing. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Charlie’s deep dive into his play of the week is a good one, because it kicks off with a Brian Elliott save, and you people don’t appreciate that Brian Elliott has been good this season. [The Athletic]

*Charlie also looks at which players on the Flyers’ roster are most, and least, likely to be traded. A lot of good Charles content today if you’re on the fence about paying for it! [The Athletic]

*Just like last year, the Flyers have dug themselves a points hole at the American Thanksgiving benchmark date. Last year, they made the playoffs. Somehow the road seems longer this year. []

*We’ve seen flashes of what this team could be this year, like we saw in the final ten minutes of that Tampa game, but they just seem incapable of putting that together for long stretches at a time. How do we fix this? [BSH]

*JJ sits down with Travis Sanheim for a little one-on-one question sesh. [Flyers]

*When Nate Schmidt of the Golden Knights was suspended for PED use it came as kind of a surprise because, well, it just doesn’t happen that often in the NHL. Why, though? [ESPN]

*And finally, there’s nothing going on with the big boys so let’s check in on the prospects! They’re still good! Mostly. [BSH]
