*So more shoes dropped, chips fell, etc. yesterday, just not the shoes we were expecting to drop. It’s getting weird around here, friends. [BSH] [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie offers a take on what made the organization decide, one day later after the initial firing, that more cuts needed to be made. [The Athletic]

*Before we forget, there was a game Tuesday, and here’s what we learned from it. [BSH]

*A big question that seems to be hanging out there now that Ron is gone is that of Carter Hart. His development, his timeline, all of this. Anyhoo, don’t expect it to change. Probably. Honestly who knows at this point. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Given that Dave Hakstol is still employed here, should he be looking at all of this as an opportunity? []

*One guy who is clearly being given an opportunity as all of this mess goes on is Anthony Stolarz. []

*Jake Voracek seemed rather despondent after Tuesday’s loss, which seems very out of character for Jake Voracek. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Part of today’s culling included Calvin Pickard’s being waived again, and the Leafs fans weigh the pros and cons of him going back to Toronto. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*The Penguins fans are viewing their next crop of games, including their game against the Flyers on Saturday, as an opportunity to pick up some easy points. It’d be nice if the boys didn’t let that happen. [Pensburgh]

*And finally, Paul Holmgren’s ideal replacement for Ron Hextall? Why, it’s Paul Holmgren! [BSH]
