*So the first Penguins game of the season is tomorrow and good news is they’re still losing, even with Crosby scoring out of his mind. Here’s what their last game looked like, to prepare you. [Pensburgh]

*Calvin we hardly knew ye. Enjoy the desert. [TSN]

*Meltzer offered some updates and insights on the GM search yesterday, and in doing so revealed a potential candidate that should... uh... terrify you. [Hockeybuzz]

*Speaking of, let’s take a closer look at one of the candidates, Bill Zito. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It would appear that, based on reports, Chuck Fletcher is the frontrunner. And Steve and Craig have some thoughts about that on the latest episode of Flyperbole. [BSH]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks of Fletcher as a candidate? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*We now live in a wild world in which, at the end of all of this, it could be Dave Hakstol left standing. [Philly.com]

*Anyhoo let’s check in on some prospects, while we still have them. [Flyers]

*Tomorrow at 5PM the alarm will sound to end the William Nylander drama, so the Leafs are running out of time to get something done. As the clock ticks, trade rumors persist. And since the Flyers are looking to get spicy, their name keeps flying about. [TSN]

*Analyzing what makes the teams that are the best at 5-on-5 so good. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, start your weekend off the right way with a new episode of Ice Sport Radio! It’s a bit Flyers-heavy, but, you know... stuff keeps happening. Hope you like it! [BSH]
