*Nothing is going on in hockey right now, my pals. Go vote, if you haven’t yet.

*Anyhoo, We’re doing a fun thing where we make a national team for each relevant country using only the best Flyers to hail from said country. Little lighthearted offseason funsies and such. [BSH]

*Speaking of international tournaments, they’re starting to predict rosters for the WJC and it’s looking like you’re going to have to go Team USA if you’re rooting for the Flyers’ kids this go ‘round. [The Athletic]

*And speaking of Flyers prospects, our pal Tom got the inside scoop on one of the kids playing up in Canada who might be flying under your radar. [BSH]

*Captain Claude is going to be breaking a lot of records this season. Here’s hoping the team keeps up. [Flyers]

*With all these Big Name Hockey Men coaches out here without current employ, who do you have landing in Seattle? [ProHockeyTalk]

*As the expansion draft draws ever closer, GM Ron Francis is saying out loud what we’ve all been thinking for some time now: that Seattle is going to make out like bandits because the flat cap is making it impossible for teams to afford their own players. Yay. [TSN]

*And finally, with the All Canada Division seeming like a foregone conclusion at this point, DGB ranks every All Canada playoff series of the modern era. Because you can never rank enough things. [The Athletic]

*Go vote. Godspeed.
