*The expansion draft is less than nine days away now, and Meltzer has some ideas about who should be protected and who should not. And some other stuff too. [Hockeybuzz]

*Seems like a fun time to look back on the Vegas draft, and how all of that shook out for the Golden Knights. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*Back to the Krak(en), what if they take Jake Voracek off of our hands? Would be really nice. Would be very cool of them to do that. [BSH]

*Speaking of cool things, the Flyers were able to make a ton of money off of tee shirts, which they donated to cancer research in Oskar Lindblom’s name. [Inquirer]

*It would appear that if there is a high-profile player on the market right now, the Flyers are in the mix, rumors-wise. So, Vladimir Tarasenko. What would it take? [The Athletic]

*The Edmonton Oilers, always doing dumb things, have traded Seth Jones’ brother to Chicago for Duncan Keith and his big contract. For some reason. Predictably, people are now just treating Seth-Jones-to-Chicago as a foregone conclusion now. [Copper And Blue]

*And finally, the league’s most well-run organization has hired the preeminent hockey mind of our generation. Absolutely killing it up there. [Silver Seven Sens]
