*Alright well now hockey’s done, sooooo... right. The draft. Coming in at 14 on the community draft board: a Swedish gentleman. [BSH]

*And at 15 y’all selected a Czech kid! The mushy middle of this draft is fun because the projections for these kids are so all over the place that some of them might be available when the Flyers get to picking. [BSH]

*And when they do get to picking, they’ll probably take a forward. [Inquirer]

*And speaking of forward prospects, just how realistic will it be for Chuck Fletcher to fill the Flyers’ holes from within? [BSH]

*One of those internal “maybes” lives in the form of Nolan Patrick, who is, apparently, feeling better. [Inquirer]

*Other than draft stuff what we’ve got right now in spades is trade rumors; so what does a Shayne Gostisbehere trade do to this roster? [BSH]

*And the cap, what’s it do to the cap? [The Athletic]

*Professional Best Friend Christ Stewart earned himself a front office job after a very short stint as a Philadelphia Flyer. What was it that made him work so well here? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Stanley Cup winning teams are always good teams. Amazing teams sometimes. But this Lightning squad is different. [Yahoo Sports Canada]

*As such, what can other teams like the Flyers learn from how that franchise built its winner? [Sportsnet]

*And finally: Flyers MVP. Who ya got? [BSH]
