*We are just under two weeks out from Draft Day (and our party!!), which means that you need to prepare for a lot of rankings and speculation and profiles and trade ideas. But first, now that all is said and done, what can Ron Hextall learn from the success of the Washington Capitals? [Philly.com]

*Ron should get really wild and bring us John Tavares, though. He won’t, or can’t, but he should try. [BSH]

*Let the draft previewing begin! Or, continue! Whatever. [Philly Is Flyer]

*Here’s JJ speaking with Chris Pryor about the Flyers’ draft plans. [Flyers]

*The big SB Nation mock NHL entry draft is underway and we’ve made it to the Flyers first pick, with which we’ve chosen a speedy center to add to the ranks. Tell us what you think about our choice. [BSH]

*Or how about a scoring winger? Would you like one of those? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Another scoring winger is next up in our community draft board profiles. Must be something in the air. [BSH]

*In the early rounds of this year’s playoffs, it seemed as if the Caps were on the brink of Capsing themselves right out at any moment. But they didn’t, and they won the whole thing. DGB looks back on some other eventual Stanley Cup winners who made it a bit hard on themselves. [Sportsnet]

*I’ve always said I want Jon Taffer, of Bar Rescue fame, to fix my life. I guess having him fix the NHL is the next best thing. [ESPN]

*Ilya Kovalchuk has been taking a tour of West Coast teams. Would be interesting if he ended up out there. [ProHockeyTalk]
