*Bask in the glory of Papa Couturier, for funsies:

*Anyhoo, hockey season is back so our post-game analyses are back too! Here’s what we learned from the first bout out of the gate. [BSH]

*Charlie is back on the horse too, so check out his observations. [The Athletic]

*As we all well know, Alain Vingeault has gotten very lose to winning a Stanley Cup. But that’s it. Close. He’s going to get one here, though. [Inquirer]

*It’s the first look at the playoffs for a number of Flyers, and a few of them are going to be real keys to this team’s success. [BSH]

*Listen I like Nate Thompson as much as the next person but he’s not the “guy without a Cup” I’m rooting for when I think about this Flyers roster. [The Athletic]

*Next up in our draft pick profiles is one of those kids from college. [BSH]

*We got a fight in the bubble!! Chill boys, ease in. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The Arizona Coyotes split with their GM was certainly the spiciest hockey story we’ve gotten in a little while, and the details do nothing to tame the spice. [ESPN]

*The NHL hasn’t had a best-of-five playoff series in over 30 years, so it’s going to be fun to see what adjustments teams and players make to get those three wins quickly. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, the polled NHL coaches. Somewhat surprisingly, hilarity ensued. [The Athletic]
