*The Flyers remain strong and true in their quest to acquire every marginal NHL goaltender and we now welcome Mike McKenna to the party! [BSH]

*Anyhoo they lost again this weekend, this time to the Flames, again in overtime. Here’s what we learned. [BSH]

*Possible future Flyer Kaapo Kakko scored late to give the Finnish kids the win over the Americans at World Juniors. It was quite a good game. [ProHockeyTalk]

*There were quite a few actual Flyers’ prospects in that game who looked fantastic. Let’s take some stock of some of the forwards coming up through the ranks right now. [Courier-Post]

*And the Phantoms, let’s see how those boys have done over the last week. [BSH]

*Looking at the kids who are currently on the roster, though, and things don’t look so rosy. Important to remember that the whole team sucks. []

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks about the fact that the Flyers are heading toward a lottery pick this year? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally, the IIHF, which has a lot of dumb rules (crease rule on full display during the gold medal game which was maddening), is considering moving to smaller, NHL-sized ice given the excitement generated by the WJC. [Yahoo Sports]
