*Good news, folks. The Flyers are Gritty Again. Now they can finally... win games? Whatever; as expected, yesterday the Flyers took their new-found cap space and spent it on noted-good-guy-and-terrible-hockey-player Chris Stewart. Cool! [Flyers]

*We here at Broad Street Hockey had some thoughts about the signing. As we are wont to do. [BSH]

*Tonight, the boys are in Edmonton for the second half of their first back-to-back of the season, and it’s a bit of a homecoming for Carter Hart. [Courier-Post]

*The good start to which the Flyers got off has been fun, sure, but is it the real deal? [The Athletic]

*Bobby Brink isn’t the only one of our prospects having a good week. Let’s check in, shall we? [BSH]

*Speaking of, Jay O’Brien is getting a little attention for his efforts to work his way back into relevance. [The Hockey News]

*Quite a lot of really good players are still scoreless. [ProHockeyTalk]

*There seems to be a big problem in the stats world at the moment. Turns out, not much of the data released by the league can be trusted. At all. So how are we supposed to know what is actually happening on the ice? [Pension Plan Puppets]

*And finally, while it may not apply to us this year (what bliss), here are DGB’s ten types of bad starts and how to know if your team is having one. [The Athletic]
