*Maybe tonight will be the night that Tampa Bay stops screwing around and finally sends the Islanders packing. Make them go away! Enough with the boring hockey! Anyhoo...

*There’s been quite a lot of talk post-playoffs, and rightfully so, about all the ways that the Flyers were let down by their best players. But guess what? The bottom six let them down too! [BSH]

*Charlie takes a dive into the Flyers’ cap situation and the hurdles it might present this offseason. [The Athletic]

*One cool thing about all of this is it has become clear that we are entering a brand new era of Flyers hockey. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of, Carter Hart. [Inquirer]

*Rumors are starting to fly around the league and one of the biggest is that the Minnesota Wild are shopping Matt Dumba. *eyeball emoji* [Sportsnet]

*A potential class-action lawsuit against the NHL and most of the Canadian major-junior system makes some pretty spicy allegations, and could really shake up the way players are treated at the very start of their careers. [TSN]

*And finally... maybe we should’ve kept John Stevens? Is it possible that he is a key to success? Buddy keeps ending up in the Stanley Cup Final... Stevens for PP coach! C’mon, Chuck! [NBC Sports Philly]
