*It’s kind of wild that it has been an entire decade since the Flyers’ last Cup run. It honestly feels simultaneously like yesterday and also like a lifetime ago. What even is time, am I right pals? Anyhoo, tomorrow is the exact anniversary of the Flyers’ win over Boston during that run so if you’d like, you can relive it. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of Cup runs, Brian Boucher thinks this year’s Flyers would’ve been real trouble for most teams in the playoffs. Sigh. [NBC Sports Philly]

*While we’re looking back at that part of the Flyers’ history... what if they never signed Ilya Bryzgalov? [BSH]

*You can’t do a “what if?” series (which we are, all week!) without looking at the Chris Pronger injury. What could have been if he never took that stick up high. [BSH]

*Sticking with the 2010s, Charlie looks at the best performances by prospects during that decade. [The Athletic]

*Coming back to living in the now, Meltzer profiles Nate Thompson. [Flyers]

*If you were to guess this season’s best scorer (by one metric, mind you) was, who’d you take? [Inquirer]

*And now that we know the AHL is done for the season, how does it affect the Flyers? [BSH]

*We spend a lot of time talking about how all of this is affecting the majors, but minor league sports are taking a real serious hit. [ProHockeyTalk]

*If the NHL is to resume, can we trust that they’ll be able to enforce the kind of restrictions necessary to keep both players and fans safe? [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*And finally, in the latest installment of the FUQ show, the Flyperbole boys dive into the fine art of the NHL celly. [BSH]
