NHL: All Star Game-Skills Competition Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

*Moving on; over the weekend, Chuck’s fifth-rounder lit things up in Halifax again. Not to be too dramatic but like... Nathan McKinnon also lit things up in Halifax on the regular. Just saying. [BSH]

*We also heard over the weekend that Mike Yeo, the Flyers one good assistant coach, may be on the short list for Kraken Koach. Also on the list? Dave Hakstol. You can read this article when you stop laughing hysterically. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers World Cup of Hockey rolls on here on this website, and next up are the representatives from the Czech Republic. [BSH]

*We’re also getting on with player reviews, taking a look at Chris Stewart’s last season. [BSH]

*In the player-review vein, Charlie takes a long look at Travis Konecny to determine what we might see out of the Flyers’ top scorer next season. [The Athletic]

*Meltzer on Morgan Frost, who has gone a very, very long time without playing any meaningful hockey, but intends to impress in training camp anyway. Whenever that may come. [Flyers]

*Those training camps will be coming pretty soon if we are to believe Bill Daly, who insists that the league is still aiming for a January 1 kick off. [TSN]

*That’s not far off, folks! And — here in the states, anyway — with the virus still very much an ongoing threat, what will the NHL have to do to get fans in the seats? [Sportsnet]

*Very few players make the jump to the NHL directly after they are drafted, and then ones that do are typically way at the top of the draft class, like Nolan Patrick. What can we learn from their rookie seasons, if anything at all? [TSN]

*And finally, in case you missed them, we’ve got a new episode of Flyperbole for you, as well as a shiny new episode of BSH Radio. Last week was a long one, these should at least make you giggle a little.
