*Friends, after weeks of absolutely agonizing lack of Flyers hockey articles, we were blessed by the gods yesterday. It was Flyers day on NHL.com. [NHL.com]

*And not just NHL.com. It was also Flyers day at ProHockeyTalk! They started off by taking a look at the overall status of the team. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Then they took a stab at the question that is probably plaguing all of us, to be honest. [PHT]

*With big money comes big expectations, so Kevin Hayes is going to have a lot of work to do to win over his new fan base. [PHT]

*Some pretty heavy expectations on Nolan Patrick, too. [PHT]

*It’ll be interesting to see if Hayes is the addition that this top-9 needs to come out of the funk they were in last season. [Inquirer]

*Charlie on Oskar Lindblom, whose season last year is a really nice little snapshot of the Dave Hakstol era. [The Athletic]

*Yam Cork! [BSH]

*Rumors! [BSH]

*Remember those dumb NHL Network ranking lists? And how dumb they were? Turns out if someone takes the time to rank players by a made-up metric that includes “watching these players” the Flyers look a little better. [Raw Charge]

*And finally, this is kind of interesting. It’s a pretty subjective ranking of all of the 31 teams’ prospects, but Joel Farabee makes the first appearance for the Flyers. Kid’s really made a splash this year eh? [The Sporting News]
