*Every year, after Christmas, the Flyers take a trip to California. And every year, it sucks. The sucking kicked off in San Jose, this time. [BSH]

*We could see some lineup changes during this trip. In a positive way, probably. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Some various and sundry Flyers things, upcoming defensemen, the penalty kill, things of that nature. [Inquirer]

*Have you been enjoying the World Junior Championship so far? It’s been pretty wild, as far as these things go. If you need to catch up, we’ve been recapping each day’s action. Day one saw the US lose to Canada... [BSH]

*... and then day two saw our own Bobby Orr Brink score his first of the tourney... [BSH]

*...and day three was the wildest one so far, with Canada getting absolutely obliterated by the Russians. It’s a good tournament this year, folks! [BSH]

*It’s the last few days of the year and as such, it’s time to look back at things. What could be more fun than torturing yourself with a what-if from the 2010 Cup run? [NBC Sports Philly]

*And since we’re wrapping up a decade as well, the Flyers five defining moments of the 2010s. 2020 doesn’t even seem like a real year. What a time to be alive. [Courier-Post]
