*You’re coming to our draft party right? In case you missed them, here are the deets. [BSH]

*Meltzer breaks down the five things that make a draft successful. [Flyers]

*And as we get ever closer to Friday’s draft, the profiles of potential draftees continue, like this big center with a cool name who could be a nice second round pickup. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And until we actually get to pick number 14, we’re going to wonder if he’ll package one or both of his first round picks to move up. []

*Nick Boyton recently shared his struggles with addiction and the way in which the Flyers organization helped him recover. It’s nice to know our org is one of the (relatively) good ones. [Philly Is Flyer]

*The Habs-Coyotes trade we saw over the weekend is the kind of player-for-player trade we don’t get enough of anymore. Here are four more guys who’d probably benefit from being moved in an old-fashioned hockey trade. [ESPN]

*On the Washington Capitals, who won the Stanley Cup after a lot of people thought their window had closed, and 8 other teams with rapidly closing windows who may still be able to pull out a win. [Sportsnet]

*And about those Caps, they’re going to need a new head coach. [Washington Capitals]

*As more reporting on the NHL’s concussion lawsuit comes out, we’re learning that the players’ own union is just as complicit as the league itself. [TSN]

*The push to bring the NHL to Seattle drives on, as the group applying for the team hires Dave Tippett as an “advisor” for now, but if you had to bet on their first coach, he’s probably your guy. [Seattle Times]
