*Chuck’s presser the other day, remember that? Meltzer pulled out the important bits in case you needed Spark Notes. [Flyers]

*And to really break it down, brilliantly of course, is Charlie over at The Athletic. He puts the whole thing into words we can all understand. [The Athletic]

*We are now less than a week away from the expansion draft, so here’s a little primer, or a little refresher, depending on where you are in your journey. [Inquirer]

*The SB Nation mock draft has been going on these last couple of weeks and when it came time for Broad Street Hockey to put on their Chuck Fletcher hats and make a pick? We did the damn thing. [BSH]

*Speaking of mock drafts, the Community Draft Board is reaching the end of the first round, and for the 25th overall you folks took things to Sweden. [BSH]

*As we’ve seen over the last few days, the approach to improvement some NHL GMs are taking to kick off the summer is to move on from the past. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Speaking of moving on, maybe Seattle will take Robert Hagg? [BSH]

*Vladimir Tarasenko has a ten-team trade list and your Flyers are on it. [BSH]

*With the draft getting so close, it’s possible player trades are going to have to get going just so teams are well-situated when Ron Francis comes knocking. [Sports Illustrated]

*If you’re new to the game or just want to try and learn a little more about what the nerds are talking about, these stats primers are always a big help. It’s always fun to learn something, gain some new perspectives, these kinds of things. [Winging It In Motown]

*The Minnesota Wild got a dog. GET A DOG, THE FLYERS!! [Hockey Wilderness]

*And finally, it’s been a long year and we’ve been dying to do this... the Broad Street Hockey Draft Party is BACK. Details here and on today’s BSH Radio later this afternoon. It’ll be so much fun to be in a room full of Flyers fans having fun together. Come if you can! [BSH]
