NHL: MAY 10 Devils at Flyers

*Playoffs haven’t started yet and the Flyers are dead... this is the doldrums, folks. If you missed the Flyers’ comments the other day, Charlie has summed them up nicely. [The Athletic]

*For his part, Carter Hart shared some personal struggles brought on by the pandemic that, understandably, bled into his performance on the ice. [Inquirer]

*People want to pretend it’s not true, or that they were smart enough to know better, but at the start of this season the Flyers appeared on quite a lot of analysts’ lists of teams to watch. And then, you know, all of this happened. [ProHockeyTalk]

*We aren’t going to see any moves happening until after the playoffs, which means we have a whole lot of time to ponder the possibility of a trade for Jack Eichel. [BSH]

*What’s wild is Jack Eichel alone can’t fix this team. Charlie runs through what the team’s top priorities need to be this offseason. [The Athletic]

*As the NHL begins to wrap up its regular season, all the other baby leagues are packing it in for the summer too. Prospect Report!!! [BSH]

*Oh yeah, the Rangers fired their coach. Things are going really well up there. [Blueshirt Banter]

*The NHL has always thought it was cute to withhold injury information from fans. They just love to say “lower body injury” with no specification. Well, if they want to be in on the sports gambling scene, they’re going to have to lose that particular idiosyncrasy. [AP]

*And finally, we sat down with a Flyers fan who, despite this terrible season, had her dreams come true thanks to the Flyers organization. [BSH]
