*Our long very-specific-to-the-Flyers-universe nightmare is over and Phil Myers has signed a contract! And folks, Chuck did good. [BSH]

*It would appear that the NHL and the players’ association have worked things out and we are looking at a January 13 start date. LET’S GO! [Hockey Wilderness]

*The players held their own and refused to change the just-negotiated CBA, the owners blinked, and we are going to have ourselves a hockey season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*On the more local rumor mill, the Flyers are reportedly close to finally signing Phil Myers, who will likely start the season as the team’s #2 defenseman. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of the top defensive unit, did you guys see Ivan Provorov sporting the new jersey? [BSH]

*Meltzer takes a look back at three of the Flyers’ best goaltenders, and the thread that ties them all together. [Flyers]

*And Charlie takes a look into the future to try and determine what the least-bad result will be for the Flyers when the Seattle Kraken come knocking. [The Athletic]

*With the likelihood that the NHL will have to kick things off with no fans in the stands pretty high at this point, how can a league relying so much on gate revenue make up those losses? [The Hockey News]

*The “personalized goal song” thing that started with the Sharks is spreading, with the Wild deciding to join the fun. Please, The Flyers. This would be so great. Please do this.

*And finally, if you haven’t checked out SB Nation’s newest feature, Secret Base, give it a go. It’s fun as hell. You can waste a lot of work time in this place. [BSH]
