*The Minnesota Wild have parted ways with former general manager Paul Fenton. A surprising but wise move after the damage that’s been done. Why, and what’s next? [The Athletic]

*The NHL is coming to Seattle, and we’re looking ahead at the expansion draft from the Flyers’ perspective. An early look at who may be getting protected. [BSH]

*But before we look into the future, might we want to take a look at the past? How the Flyers have handled goaltenders over the last decade has been interesting to say the least, but now there’s another new bench boss in town. What’s his history tell us about that? [BSH]

*Listen as Craig answers more of your questions in part two of the aptly titled, A’ing some Qs. Who makes it first, Joel Farabee or Morgan Frost? [BSH]

*And speaking of Farabee, he’s been lighting it up at the World Junior Summer Showcase, but what must he show the Flyers to make the team? [NBC Sports Philly]

*As the NHL continues to adapt, and as teams value having skill on all four forward lines, the amount of fighting majors has hit a new low. The drop is obvious to anyone watching, but the actual numbers are pretty staggering. [ESPN]

*Lastly, we have Gritty making his video game debut in NHL 20! [BSH]
