*Okay real talk, we’re all friends here; the Flyers are absolutely one of the top ten teams in the league right now, right?? [BSH]

*Yesterday was Remembrance Day up in Canada and Veteran’s Day here in the States, and while it is a somber day of reflection for most of us, it means a little bit more to our pal Brian Elliott. [Sportsnet]

*There will be a call today between the league and its Board of Governors, apparently on which the plans for a January 1 start date will begin to take shape. It seems like a very ambitious target but honestly, they really crushed the playoffs from start to finish. So maybe they can pull this off too. [TSN]

*Meltzer has a little bit more on Bettman’s plans moving forward. [Hockeybuzz]

*Yesterday we reviewed the performance of two players who we will never have to see again in a Flyers uniform, probably. First, Derek Grant, who is a Ducks now. [BSH]

*And then we looked back at Matt Niskanen, who we only got one year out of, and whose absence might be the one the Flyers feel most to start next season. [BSH]

*We’re all still trying to figure out what to expect from Nolan Patrick next season. Kid could be a really important piece or, in the worst case scenario, not play at all. (note: this is audio content)[NBC Sports Philly]

*There may be no one on earth who has a better idea of what to expect from Nolan Patrick than Ryan White and folks? He’s impressed. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally... Roman Cechmanek baby what is you doin’?? [BSH]
