*We got a little bit of Flyers in our lives yesterday, with Ron Hextall having a presser to reintroduce James van Riemsdyk to Philadelphia, and in the course of this we learned some things. [Courier-Post]

*Oskar Lindblom was a bit of a disappointment in the playoffs but he had himself a pretty nice little showing during his first stint in the NHL last season, wouldn’t you say? [BSH]

*Charlie, on Travis Konecny’s very good 2017-2018 season and what we should expect from the Flyers’ (hopefully) top line winger this season. [The Athletic]

*On Brian Elliott, who did exactly what the Flyers needed him to do and, frankly, what we all should’ve expected him to do: provided perfectly average NHL goaltending. [BSH]

*It looks like Jarome Iginla is calling it a career. [Yahoo Sports]

*The Flyers don’t even figure in this article on which rebuilding teams are closest to being Cup contenders, which makes you wonder if national hockey media types ever considered the Flyers to be in rebuilding mode. [ESPN]

*There has been some movement in the concussion lawsuit against the NHL, which may lead to one lawsuit becoming many lawsuits. [TSN]

*And finally, nothing is happening in the hockey world, so if you missed this week’s BSH Radio good news, you have plenty of time to listen to it. [BSH]
