*Bet you didn’t see that one coming, huh?! We all implored Chuck to Do Something. And Chuck Did Something. He waived a player you could easily call one of their best four defenseman this season. A low bar, to be sure, but he cleared it. [BSH]

*Charlie dove in deep, as he does. He’s very good at that. [The Athletic]

*It was so surprising to everyone that even NBC Sports, which lives in the same building as the Flyers, was shocked by the news. [NBC Sports Philly]

*We’ll know this afternoon if anyone has claimed Ghost, but you have to wonder if, either way, this move is the precursor to something bigger. [Inquirer]

*It also opens up some interesting expansion draft options. It’s all nicely broken down here. [The Athletic]

*The Flyers play tonight, by the way. Anyhoo, Samuel Morin had a clear idea of what he was going to do with his first goal puck the second he got it. [Inquirer]

*If you’re interested in some enjoyable audio content, Sabres writer Joe Yerdon came back to BSH Radio to do a little between-game analysis.

*And finally, the weekly prospect report is here. And you continue to hope that maybe we’ll get a look at Tanner Laczynski some time soon. [BSH]
