*Let’s close out the season entirely with our final set of morning observations, from Sunday’s bummer of a loss. [BSH]

*The playoffs may be over, but it’s going to be an important summer for this team. And, if anything, there’s more pressure now than ever. [NBC Sports Philly]

*As was to be expected, the Flyers have sent Travis Sanheim and Oskar Lindblom to Lehigh Valley to help the Phantoms with their playoff push. Have fun, kids. [Flyers]

*The Phantoms should serve as a nice reminder that, despite this season’s failing, the future for this team is bright as heck. []

*Do you think that the failing, the loss to the Penguins, has masked any of the progression this team has made? [Courier-Post]

*This weekend is the draft lottery which means we get to spend the next few weeks starting to get excited about who the Flyers will draft with both their, and St. Louis’, draft picks. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Need help picking a bandwagon? DGB thinks the Winnipeg Jets are a good choice. [Sportsnet]

*A lot of post-series analysis seems to point to goaltending as the glaring weakness; might the Flyers find improvement from an Metro rival? [The Score]

*And finally, on Sean Couturier, the very best thing about the playoffs this year. [] [USA Today]
