*Pennsylvania pals, get your indoor dining and at-the-gym workouts in today, for tomorrow we lock it down, all over, again. If only there were some way to fix this. Anyhoo, apparently the Flyers dropped in value. I blame Gritty. [Inquirer]

*Back to good stuff: Phil Myers. Charlie takes a deep-dive into his new contract and the larger ramifications it brings. [The Athletic]

*There was a small worry that, with the realignments necessary to make a hockey season work, the Flyers would no longer be in the same division as those hated Penguins. Looks like we avoid that fate. [BSH]

*One thing to think about, though, is how playing a condensed 56-game season will impact that Flyers’ goaltending. Get ready for a little more Brian Elliott than you are used to. [NBC Sports Philly]

*This short season will be the last of Scott Laughton’s contract, which will make things... interesting, to say the least. Especially with the draft hanging out there. [The Athletic]

*While the big issue — getting a season going — appears to have been resolved, the NHL and the PA still have some stuff they need to work out. [Sportsnet]

*Advertisements on players’ helmets: good? Bad? Who cares? Gotta make money somehow, and it’s probably never going to come from TV, sooooo... [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, in case you missed it, new BSH Radio! Charlie’s back so you know it’s good. [BSH]
