*First it was speculated, but yesterday it was made official: the NHL and ESPN have made a big fat broadcasting deal. Like it? []

*Big windfall of cash should make the league a bit more fun going forward, right? LOL no, the NHL is a parody of itself at this point.

*Anyway, the Flyers. Did we learn anything from that win over the Sabres? [BSH]

*One thing we learned — or were reminded of, more accurately — is that Nolan Patrick has moves. Perhaps he will try using them during a hockey game! [Inquirer]

*We also learned that we have, for the moment, a little bit of a Carter Hart problem. Charlie tells you why this shouldn’t be a long-term worry. [The Athletic]

*Also, Charlie was on the radio! In Canada!! That’s really neat, so you should listen. [Sportsnet]

*Alain Vigneault might be poking at Chuck a little bit. To get him to do something. Stop the bleeding, etc. [Inquirer]

*The Rangers will be the Flyers’ next opponent once they finish up with Washington this weekend. And it looks like they might have to deal with a well-rested Artemi Panarin. [Blueshirt Banter]

*Take a look around the league and what is one thing that most of the top teams have in common? Strong secondary scoring. [ProHockeyTalk]

*If you’ve been thinking about what all 31 NHL teams will be doing at the deadline, you’re in luck. If you thought the Flyers might be buyers, you’re probably in luck there too. [The Athletic]

*And finally, what’s the perfect thing to do to kill some time before tonight’s game? Why, it’s listening to a brand new BSH Radio! [BSH]
