*Meltzer profiles birthday boy (yesterday) Derek Grant. [Flyers]

*What fine time to remind you of some Flyers of the past that you might’ve forgotten about. [BSH]

*This is a link to audio, but it’s Eric Lindros audio, so... you know. [Sportsnet]

*I’m going to make some focaccia for my housemates today. Anyone else want to make some focaccia? [Bon Appetit]

*Wayne Gretzky seems to think we’ll definitely have hockey this summer. Cool Wayne. [ProHockeyTalk]
