*The Experts™ are saying it will snow this week. Wouldn’t that be lovely? Pray to your gods, we need a little bit of lovely around here. Anyhoo, remember The Germ? He scored a goal this weekend. [BSH]

*You folks think the Flyers are Cup contenders yet? If they aren’t — which I think is arguable! — here’s some stuff they can do to get there. [Inquirer]

*Not a huge surprise, but Team USA made it official for two of they Flyers’ more exciting prospects. [BSH]

*And it turns out we aren’t the only ones excited to see these kids play in this tourney. [The Hockey News]

*Losing Matt Niskanen earlier than we thought we would sucked, for sure, but it may end up being a blessing in disguise. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of the defense, Justin Braun had himself a year that could succinctly be described as “fine”. [BSH]

*SANTA BERNIE! [Inquirer]

*It’s going to be interesting to see if Ivan Provorov ever actually makes it into these “who are the best defensemen in the league” conversations. [ProHockeyTalk]

*There hasn’t been a lot going on, transactions-wise, this offseason. But there are some things that might end up happening before we get going again. [Sportsnet]

*There was a bit of sturm-und-drang recently about reports that the NHL planned to privately purchase a cache of vaccine doses for its players and staff. The report was a tweet. Sometimes, we should consider the source. [Winging It In Motown]

*And finally, in case you missed it, the latest episode of Flyperbole, for your enjoyment. You’ll definitely enjoy it. [BSH]
