*Ahh yes, finally back to Flyers game day. It’s fun because now we look forward to them because they’re fun and good! Anyhoo, poor Johnny Oduya is having a tough time getting to his new team. We’ll see where he fits once he gets here. []

*Ron made an appearnce on NHL Network Radio yesterday that’s worth a listen (no subscription required). [SiriusXM NHL Network]

*Now that we’ve crossed over into March, Jim Jackson has some thoughts about what turned out to be a very, very good February for the Flyers. [Flyers]

*You know who else had a good February? The Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Also, turns out Travis Sanheim is really, really good in the AHL. Some would said, even too good. [BSH]

*Speaking of the Phantoms, Anthony Stolarz is back practicing! Which is amazing, and very good news. [The Morning Call]

*You’ll probably be shocked to learn that people in positions of leadership in the NHL world are very backwards-thinking when it comes to data and what can be done with it. [ESPN]

*Friedman’s latest 31 Thoughts take a look back on the trade deadline and all the moves that did (or didn’t. Mostly didn’t.) happen. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, this is a nice bit of light pre-game reading on all of the things that go into constructing an outdoor NHL rink. [The Chicago Tribune]
