*The more things change, the more the Flyers are still infuriatingly boring and mediocre and disappointing. Not a great first showing in front of the new guy in charge. Recap.

*We’ve talked a lot about our new pal Chaz, so let’s get to know his first hire, new assistant coach Rick Wilson. [BSH]

*Speaking of Chuck...Charles. GO GET ME MARK STONE. [TSN]

*Some seem to think that the hiring of Fletcher was not the best choice for the Flyers. We shall see, I suppose. [Yahoo Sports]

*Some seem to think that Chaz’s Suter and Parise moves should make Flyers fans feel good about things. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie takes a look at Travis Sanheim and what he can do to improve his lot with the team. [The Athletic]

*It’s possible that the player with the most to gain from the new regime is Anthony Stolarz. [Courier-Post]

*Speaking of goalies, Carter Hart is getting better but he’s still not ready for the big jump yet. [The Trentonian]

*Not only are their rumors of the Penguins’ head coach, Mike Sullivan, being on a rapidly warming seat but now there are rumors of a Phil Kessel trade. This is all very satisfying if you ask me. [Pensburgh]

*Pierre LeBrun has some interesting ideas about how to improve the NHL product. [The Athletic]

*It’s Friday and you know what that means: new podcasts for your listening pleasure. First we’ve got this week’s episode of Ice Sport Radio, in which we talk a little Flyers (of course), a little Seattle, and a lot of Pacific Division. [BSH]

*And we’ve also got a great 90s-themed Flyperbole to go along with last night’s 90s-themed hockey game. Have a great weekend everybody! [BSH]
