*American pals, be sure to vote if you haven’t already. Civic duties, and such. Anyhoo, everybody have a fun Halloween? This Sharks fan definitely did. [Sportsnet]

*And if you spend some time thinking about the scariest teams in the Eastern Conference, well guess what, pals? Your Flyers are pretty scary. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charles took a moment to look both back and ahead to take account of the current state of this Flyers team. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of the future, let’s have a talk about Egor Zamula. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Over the weekend, we learned that the OHL has decided to ban bodychecking in the upcoming season, because of the virus. Which is transmitted through the air. In your vaporized spit. So that’s a choice. [AP]

*Bob McKenzie, generally the most trusted voice in hockey media, is dubious. His questions are worth thinking about as the leagues move forward.

*This is a fun hypothetical solution should junior/minor leagues not play at all next season. And honestly who knows what is going to happen. [Raw Charge]

*What comes next for the NHL is also hypothetical at this point. [Sportsnet]

*Mike Hoffman is without question the best remaining free agent. He’s got all that messy baggage and had a down season, sure. But he’s good. So it’ll be interesting to see where he ends up in a league of rapidly diminishing cap space. [The Hockey News]

*And finally, in case you missed it Friday, new Flyperbole! The boys are talking prospects, jerseys, and unwarranted disrespect. [BSH]
