*We talk a lot about the idea of the “eye test” versus the numbers. But they should work together, right? Brad did a little experiment to see just how often the eyes and the numbers agreed. [BSH]

*Let’s kick off the mock expansion draft protection lists with the best: Charlie’s first pass at who the Flyers will protect and who they’re willing to lose. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of offseason happenings, last night we learned when the draft lottery would take place. [BSH]

*All of the minor leagues are wrapped up, which means that this is your final prospect report of the season. [BSH]

*Let’s check in on future Flyer Jack Eichel and all that messiness up there in Western New York. [Die By The Blade]
