*And just like that, All-Star weekend is behind us. Travis Konecny finished a respectable seventh in the fastest skater comp (take that, Quinn Hughes). Should’ve had a “fastest chirp comeback” competition he’d crush that. [Inquirer]

*In fact, Travis Konecny is good at many things. Let’s revel in them, shall we? [NBC Sports Philly]

*So, do we think that Alain Vigneault has gotten all he can get out of this Flyers roster? Do they need to make a move in order for the team to make the playoffs? It’s an interesting question. [Inquirer]

*There are quite a few reasons why we should be hopeful about a playoff push for this team heading down the stretch. [NBC Sports Philly]

*There are also a few reasons why we should be worried, too. Ahh, life. Always such a mixed bag. [NBC Sports Philly]

*AHL All-Star Morgan Frost is finding his game in Allentown with the hopes of getting another call from Philly. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of the playoff race, these are the coaches and GMs who might have the most impact on it ahead of the deadline. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The NHL is apparently looking to change up the All-Star game again, but for what it’s worth the players are into it. [AP]

*Obviously the current format puts the 3-on-3 overtime format front a center. It has gone through some changes since its debut. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally... Phantoms update! [BSH]
