*It was a week yesterday since the trade deadline, and with proper time to reflect and analyze, we’ve graded. [BSH]

*We’re smack in the middle of our three day break from the Flyers and when they return on Thursday they’ll have 11 games remaining. They don’t need to be pointless! [Inquirer]

*The break does give on time to think, though. Like about back before this season started, how optimistic we all were. Such fools! [BSH]

*After fighting his own battle with cancer, Oskar Lindblom serves as inspiration for others waging their own wars. [Inquirer]

*Power rankings? Why not. Once again the Flyers aren’t nearly as low as you might expect them to be. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally, Bob McKenzie released his draft ranking yesterday, with Owen Power still the consensus #1 based on his chats with NHL GMs. There’s one important thing to ask about this list, though... [TSN]

*...how does this affect the Flyers? [BSH]
