*And, because you gotta hear both sides, here are ten ways they could absolutely blow it. Which would be very, very Caps of them. [Vice Sports]

*Anyhoo, the Flyers! Meltzer has some quick hits for your Wednesday morning. [Hockeybuzz]

*Isaac Ratcliffe, the tallest prospect, has been named Captain of his Guelph Storm for next season. Pretty cool. [BSH]

*We’ve gotten to the Flyers’ pick in our community draft board and, spoiler alert, it’s a defenseman! [BSH]

*The Flyers should just go ahead and lock Ivan Provorov up for the next 20 years. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Our wrap-up of the Phantoms’ playoff run continues with a look at the sleepers. [BSH]

*As we head into the end of the season, maybe, probably, DGB picks his all-disappointment team from the players on the rosters of the eliminated playoff teams. These kinds of lists are fun if you ask me. [Sportsnet]
