*We also singled out some players from throughout the team’s history that really deserved to win a Cup but never did. First up, the forwards... [BSH]

*... and then the defensemen and goalies. [BSH]

*So, given all of these things happening at the moment, there is a solid chance that the salary cap with be either flat or, horror of horrors, go down next season. How does this affect the Flyers? [The Athletic]

*On this season’s biggest Flyers disappointments and pleasant surprises this season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*You know what’s a great question? What if the Flyers had drafted Jaromir Jagr? What if!! [Courier-Post] (Eds. Note: you should click on this link a hundred times today, so Dave’s bosses know the value he brings)

*Speaking of what-ifs, the sports leagues really want to get back to playing. [AP]
