*Judging by The Discourse that seemed to be happening yesterday on the socials media, it would appear that Flyers fans are already in full offseason mode. Johnny Hockey! Nik Ehlers! Patrick Laine! Bring us all the good players that may or not be on the block!

*Anyhoo, the other Discourse that’s been pretty prevalent was on whether or not Alain Vigneault blew it, from a coaching standpoint, these playoffs. Most seem to think he did, at least somewhat. Charlie dives into the arguments to see what sticks. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of Coach, how’s he stack up against other first-year bench bosses? [Inquirer]

*Meltzer offers his various musings on Oskar Lindblom, the Masterton, and the upcoming draft. [Hockeybuzz]

*Speaking off, we got a couple of new dates for the draft yesterday. The Flyers will have some options to choose from when they hit the stage for sure. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Who’s ready to talk free agent targets?! [Inquirer]

*Our old pal Luke Schenn is finding success down in Tampa. Finally. [Sportsnet]

*On what to expect from the Flyers — and all the other teams — this offseason. [The Athletic]

*Gone are the days of the slow, hulking, defensive defenseman. These playoffs have shown that the role of the #1 defenseman has definitely changed. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Here’s a wild idea: put all the Canadian teams in one division and let them fight to the death all season. [Matchsticks & Gasoline]

*And finally, DGB takes the time to select one player from each eliminated team to form the All-Disappointment squad. It must’ve been tough for him to select just one Flyer, to be honest. [The Athletic]
