*Chuck Fletcher and the Flyers called a press conference yesterday to talk about... well, nothing, really. Talked a bit about the expansion draft, vaguely. [Inquirer]

*Specifically mentioned he’s willing to trade this year’s first round pick. Which is good. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of moves to be made, Charlie looks at the idea of moving on from Jake Voracek. Seems to be the hot topic of conversation these last few days. [The Athletic]

*We’re up to No. 24 on the Community Draft Board and you all have selected another player from the Q. [BSH]

*There were a couple of surprises yesterday, most notably that the Minnesota Wild decided to buy out both Ryan Suter AND Zach Parise. Very interesting approach. [Hockey Wilderness]

*So... Ryan Suter? Maybe? Chuck? It’s not the worst idea. [BSH]

*The other surprise yesterday was Pekka Rinne’s announcement that he’s calling it a career. Shame that dude never got a Cup. [On The Forecheck]

*And finally, in the latest mock up of the very-quickly-approaching expansion draft, the Kraken are once again predicted to do the Flyers a bit of a favor. Here’s hoping. [The Athletic]
