*The Flyers came out in Washington last night just completely lifeless. It was a real slog. Here’s the ol’ recap.

*Just because the trade deadline has passed doesn’t mean Chuck is done making moves! The Flyers signed Jackson Cates to a two-year deal. Not Noah Cates. The other one. [BSH]

*The biggest move Fletcher made on deadline is, arguably, the Scott Laughton extension. Charlie dives in to what lead the team to sign him rather than trade him. [The Athletic]

*So did the deadline moves overall really do anything to change which teams are expected to finish at the top? Eh. [Yahoo Sports Canada]

*Some of the top teams in the league are still missing pieces and will have to make due with what they’ve got as they head into the playoffs. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Friedman puts a bow on the deadline with 31 Thoughts, including a few tidbits about what the Flyers maye have been brewing on Monday. [Sportsnet]

*And finally... prospect report! Not a lot to report with the Phantoms shut down for Covid-related reasons, but catch up on the other kids. [BSH]
