*Summer is (unofficially) over, and normally we would all be brimming with excitement about rapidly approaching training camps and preseason games and whatnot. But everything is weird, so we’re watching Conference Finals. Also, everyone took off yesterday so links, they are few. Hope you people had a good day off.

*Anyhoo, Charlie went through the Flyers’ playoff roster and gave everyone a letter grade. He’s a very fair grader. [The Athletic]

*We still maintain that this cursed year brought more positives than negatives for the Flyers. [BSH]

*Despite the fact that a whole bunch of our highly-touted prospects are no longer prospects, the Flyers’ farm system still graded out pretty highly by Corey Pronman’s metric. [The Athletic]

*As the Toronto bubble closes and the league converges on the bubble in Edmonton, the NHL announced its sixth straight week of zero positive Covid-19 tests. The league really did crush this. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And by crushing this they’ve given us, if nothing else, a very memorable playoffs. [Sportsnet]

*If you need a handy schedule for this round of televised hockey, we’ve got you. [ProHockeyTalk]

*So, thus far, Conn Smythe: who ya got? [ProHockeyTalk]

*Sure the Islanders and Lightning are in the Conference Final, but they’ve got cap issues heading into next season. Take that, losers! [Sportsnet]

*And finally, yesterday we gave your our WCF picks, today the East. Be sure to roast us for being wrong later. [BSH]
