*The Flyers still have an opening at third line wing...could that perhaps be a job won by No. 14 in our Top 25 Under 25? Maddie highlights Nicolas Aube-Kubel and what could lie ahead for the former second-round pick in 2019-20. [BSH]

*Very important Mitchell Marner update: still not signed to an NHL contract...and possibly lost somewhere in the Swiss Alps? This has been your very important Mitchell Marner update. [TSN]

*On RFA’s...there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight, at least for the bigger names that is. [TSN]

*Wysh compiled All-Decade teams for all 31 clubs, and holy crap is that a trip down memory lane. How things would have been different with a few more years of Chris Pronger and (gulp) a better goaltender. [ESPN]

*The Worldwide Leader doing actual hockey things is still strange, but Emily Kaplan grading out some of the best and worst of the decade that was: from the MVP (Sidney Crosby, boo) to the worst trade (Hint, it’s a one-for-one, lol), and everything in between. [ESPN]

*Shea Weber could very well have made his way on the Flyers’ All-Decade team should the Predators not have matched that offer sheet, and even through an injured plagued 2018-19 he was still valuable for the Canadiens. [Eyes on the Prize]

*PHT is looking at the Rangers, who appear to have expedited their rebuild with the signing of Artemi Panarin but still have many question marks headed into the 2019-20 season. Among them? The college coach behind the bench. [NBCS]

*Speaking of the Rangers, the Hurricanes are pulling one from the Blueshirts’ book for their new road sweater. As Sam Prevot points out via Twitter, it gives the Canes four distinct sweater crests for the 2019-20 season —assuming they trot out the gorgeous Whalers ensemble again. [NBCS]

*I mean, it could be worst than Chuck Fletcher or Ron Hextall, Flyers fans. [Lmao]
