*Big time hockey news yesterday as we learned that our old pal Peter Laviolette is moving into the neighborhood. D.C., to be exact. [Japers’ Rink]

*The Caps, clearly on the downside of their current roster, have a lot of things that need fixing. It’ll be interesting to see if Lavi is the guy that can fix them. [ESPN]

*The Flyers aren’t the only team in need of a solution at 3C, and this look at how the Penguins have approached the dilemma is an interesting study in how hard it can be the get this right. [Pensburgh]

*The Vegas Golden Knights were picked by nearly everyone to make it to the Western Conference Final. And they did not. So what the heck happened? [ProHockeyTalk]

*Anyhoo, the Flyers. After the playoffs, James van Riemsdyk seemed to be one of the guys getting a lot of criticism from fans. Rightly so, one could argue. But losing him would likely make the Flyers worse, right? [NBC Sports Philly]

*You know who didn’t get much criticism, though? Scott Laughton. Both he and the Flyers took jumps forward this season. [Inquirer]

*And finally, AV puts the final punctuation on the freshly ended season. Good, bad, where we go from here. [Flyers]
