*Pals, it’s Friday. Hooray. Let’s look at how the Flyers might fare in this round robin. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It should come as no real surprise that they’re the underdog. [Inquirer]

*This makes for a fun Friday thought exercise: what’s the ideal lineup for the Flyers to use once they’re playing again? [NBC Sports Philly]

*We got some news about prospect Wyatt Kalynuk deciding to go pro, but this doesn’t necessarily mean he’s heading to Philly. [BSH]

*Charlie gave you people are really interesting and thoughtful fan survey to fill out. And these are the results. [The Athletic]

*The rest of the Phantoms forwards are getting their turn at the evaluation station. I just made that up. [BSH]

*Another fun thing to do on a Friday is assess the real value of an NHL coach calling a timeout. [Hockey Graphs]

*NHL players are, reasonably, worried about what it’ll be like to play after being literally stagnant for so long. [Yahoo Sports]

*The prospect of hockey returning is obviously very exciting and promising. But... is it good? [The Guardian]

*And finally, since this year’s draft is weird and confusing anyway, how’s about this one: what if the playoff teams were able to draft one player from one of the teams that is on the outside? Flyers pick rules. [The Athletic]
