NHL: MAY 10 Devils at Flyers

*Before we jump into exit interviews, in case you missed it, here’s what we learned from the last season of the game. A win. [BSH]

*Anyhoo, yesterday was the big end-of-season media availability with the front office and players. Nothing said would light the world on fire with interest, but one thing stuck out: that the Flyers’ young players took steps back because of training limitations in the offseason. [Inquirer]

*There are a lot of questions facing this team and, in what should be a surprise to no one, we didn’t get a lot of them in a press conference. So we will wait for the answers. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It’ll be one of three things, according to Charlie. Run it back, surgically repair, or blow it into pieces. [The Athletic]

*We had the team awards for accolades, so it stands to reason that someone would put together ‘awards’ for stinking, too. [Inquirer]

*In Not The Flyers news, we learned yesterday that the relationship between Jack Eichel and the Sabres is even worse than we probably imagined. Friedman dives in in his latest 31 Thoughts, as well as making a few points about the Flyers. [Sportsnet]

*Every fan base would probably be into the idea of Jack Eichel being on their team. But which teams can actually do it? [The Athletic]

*As teams are vaccinated and protocols relaxed here in the States, things will likely not be changing for the Canadian teams. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, with several head coaching and general managing jobs opening up this summer, could the NHL finally look outside the 200 Hockey Men and hire someone new? [ESPN]
