*Apparently, the talks between the league and the NHLPA are going as well as they’ve gone during the lockouts. Sooooo not great. Seems very grim, in my opinion. [The Toronto Star]

*Anyhoo, it better news, Cam York and Bobby Brink will likely be representing the USA during the upcoming World Junior Championship. That’s neat. [BSH]

*Charlie on Kevin Hayes, his fun and rather successful first year as a Flyer, and how his contract is going to age as time rolls on. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of good first seasons, Tyler Pitlick had one too. Unfortunately, it was also his last. [BSH]

*York and Brink aren’t the only Flyers’ prospects doing noteworthy things this week. Prospect report! [BSH]

*Meltzer makes the case for everyone’s favorite original small goal boy to make the Flyers’ Hall. [Flyers]

*Along with the aforementioned stalemate, might the NHL’s return to play be stalled by what’s happening in the NFL right now? [Mile High Hockey]
