*FOLKS! The Flyers are coming. They’re getting here. It’s nearly time.

It’s the holidays. And the offseason. We’re all doing our best.

*Speaking of Oskar... he’s cancer free a year later. That is outstanding. []

*Anyhoo, the Flyers: they’re good! Accept this truth into your hearts. [Inquirer]

*And with rosters expanded a bit we might get a good look at some more kids than we might normally, which is fun. [Inquirer]

*There’s some worry about the World Junior Championship happening while all this is going on, but good news is it is in Canada, and Canada is confident these kids will be safe. [ProHockeyTalk]

*It was mentioned yesterday but bears repeating: there are more that a couple of pretty good hockey players still unsigned. Flat cap is a real bitch. [The Hockey News]

*Apparently Mark Messier was trying to get into the weed business?! That’s wild. [Yahoo Sports Canada]

*And finally, DGB is constructing theoretical rosters again, this time going with one made up of guys who stayed with one team a long time, the other made of players that bounced around a lot. Why not, huh? Have fun. [The Athletic]
