*We’ve got something coming out later this afternoon that forces one to imagine what the NHL might be like if the men in charge of it were fun. The dream, really. Anyhoo, let’s talk about this whole “Hamilton isn’t our top target” thing. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of things that are fun, the Flyers appear to be figuring in to the Jack Eichel conversation. [The Athletic]

*After Oskar Lindblom was revealed to be the winner of the Masterton, we saw a rare showing of wholesomeness from the mass of humanity known as Hockey Twitter. [Flyers]

*Oskar, for his part, is just looking forward to getting back to the player he was before the cancer. [Inquirer]

*Charlie looks back at what we saw from Phil Myers this season. It wasn’t great. The question now is, will next year be better? [The Athletic]

*Up at number seven on our draft board is another defenseman! Lots of defense early on in this one. [BSH]

*One of the big benefits of being the team that every hockey player loved as a child is that you get to sign Jason Spezza for league minimum. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*Since the Islanders refuse to die I guess we have to keep talking about the Islanders. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, what has become one of the best parts of the playoffs has arrived: a Canadian and an American watch each other’s playoff commercials. Hilarity ensues. [The Athletic]
