*After the signing, Alain Vigneault has a conference call with the press. [Flyers]

*Have you been wondering what Flyers jersey number is the most cursed? Well you are in luck, pal. [BSH]

*Speaking of what-ifs, AV thinks the return of sports will be a big push toward getting life back to something resembling normal. [Inquirer]

*Remember Ron Hextall’s first draft? We do. He did good. [BSH]
