*The Flyers play again tonight. It’s the Rangers. Again. This season has turned into a bad parody of Groundhog Day. Anyhoo, we heard from Chuck yesterday. He admitted that changes need to be made. Now, he just needs to make them. [Inquirer]

*The Flyers signed one of their prospects, a guy you’ve definitely heard of, to a two-year deal yesterday.

*Samuel Morin is playing defense in the AHL again, which means several people are contractually obligated to continue to mention him as though he would help this team in any way. [Inquirer]

*While the aforementioned Chuck presser revealed that he does want to make changes to the team, Charlie makes a really good point: this team doesn’t deserve to have help brought in for them this season. [The Athletic]

*But enough about the Flyers. Biggest news yesterday? The NHL fired (maybe? unclear) Tim Peel for saying out loud on a hot mic that refs make it a priority to even up calls. QUELLE SUPRISE! [NBC News]

*As much as Tim Peel sucked, though — and boy did he ever, what he said isn’t his fault. It’s the NHL’s fault. [Raw Charge]

*And we should give them no credit here, at all, for doing “the right thing” in this situation. [The Athletic]

*Finally, we’ve a new episode of BSH Radio for you. Team’s a mess which means there’s a lot to talk about. [BSH]
