NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Toronto Maple Leafs Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

*It’s the Leafs again tonight, and they’re better than they were last time on account of being rid of their asshole of a coach. So, this will be a tough one for the Flyers. Hart in net. Get it boys. [Inquirer]

*Matt Niskanen and Justin Braun are making Chuck Fletcher, about whom there was some consternation this offseason, look pretty dang smart. [BSH]

*Charlie has some thoughts on the state of the team heading into tonight’s game. [The Athletic]

*Despite a ton of legitimate NHL stars coming out of the 2011 entry draft, Sean Couturier may just be the best pick made that year. [TSN]

*Corey Pronman never seems to be too high on Flyers’ prospects, but on one, he’s admitting he made a mistake. He’s been that good. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of, let’s check in on those kids. Prospect report!!!! [BSH]

*The Flyers have a new victory song. They seem to like it, so there’s that. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It used to be that a team’s #1 goaltender took the lion’s share of the starts in any given season; 50, 60 games was the norm. But as the league focuses more on load management, even the best goalies are seeing the number of starts go down. [AP]

*DGB’s power rankings this week throw a little praise at the Flyers, which is always nice. People are starting to notice, folks! [The Athletic]

*And finally... there were some big names that played for the Flyers over the last decade. Who’d you put on your all-2010s Flyers roster? [BSH]
