*Happy Deadline Day, Flyers fans! We say this every year, it feels like, but this deadline might actually feature a few fireworks. We shall see. Think Ron will make a move? Do you even want him to? []

*Another weekend, another Flyers win. It’s getting pretty wild, folks. Here’s ten things we learned from Saturday afternoon’s win over the Ottawa Senators. [BSH]

*Remember during the losing streak/dark times nothing was bouncing the Flyers’ way? We’ve come full circle. At precisely the right time. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Our best players are playing excellent hockey; Ivan Provorov and Shayne Gostisbehere are literally two of the best defensemen in hockey and Nolan Patrick continues to improve. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Nolan Patrick, who has been fantastic on the power play since Wayne Simmonds went down. [NBC Sports Philly]

*In fact, it is not at all ridiculous to talk about a few Flyers when we talk about the NHL awards this season. [Flyers]

*Okay so this is silly anecdotal nonsense, but there are more than a few similarities between this Flyers team and the one that made a rather improbably Cup run in 2010. []

*Do we think there’s a problem with Radko Gudas? []

*The Olympic hockey tournament came to a close late Saturday night with the unofficial Russians beating the Germans in OT. It was a very, very good game that may just have redeemed what was a rather boring Olympics for men’s hockey overall. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, one of my favorite things in the world is asking far-flung Flyers fans how and why they chose to wear the orange and black. So I loved this a lot. [NBC Sports Philly]
