*In a bit of a surprising move, the Flyers parted ways with Phantoms head coach Scott Gordon, as well as assistant coach Kerry Huffman. [BSH]

*Surprising because it seemed like Gordon was good at his job. Prospects seemed to be developed well, Phantoms were good. Guess we’ll find out eventually why this move was made. [Inquirer]

*Charlie breaks down the Flyers’ depth chart, see where we are with things. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of breaking things down, we’re kicking off our player grades with a look at the goaltenders. [BSH]

*We’re probably going to be hearing rumors about Nolan Patrick for the entire summer until he’s either a)traded or b)on the opening night roster. So we might as well settle in. [Inquirer]

*Can we find any clues about what we might see over the summer in Alain Vigneault’s past? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Sure this season sucked, but you can always find a positive. At least one. And you kind find one for all the other teams that sucked too! [The Hockey News]

*With the North Division playoffs finally getting going, the Winnipeg Jets are going to have to figure out how to contain Connor McDavid. Good luck pals! [Arctic Ice Hockey]

*And finally, one of the funnest parts of the post season thus far has been watching games with full-ish buildings. The energy has been amazing. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like our Canadian pals are going to get that, and that’s a real bummer. [Sportsnet]
