*Full disclosure: stole that headline from a Charles O’Connor tweet. Because it would appear that, at least for now, Chuck Fletcher is all done.

*Anyhoo, it was a wild, wild day around the league yesterday, and while the Flyers didn’t do anything extra spicy, the did make some moves. They:

  • Brought in Martin Jones to backup Carter Hart. [BSH]
  • Gave out another contract to... Nate Thompson. For some reason. [BSH]
  • Made the Keith Yandle deal we’d all heard about officially official. [Flyers]
  • And then added some AHL/press box depth in the form of Adam Clendening... [BSH]
  • ... and defenseman Nick Seeler. [BSH]

*Speaking of Yandle, Charlie broke down what his impact to the team might be ahead of today’s frenzy. [The Athletic]

*Brian Elliott landed himself in Tampa Bay. Really glad he ended up in a good spot. Best of luck, BAMF. [Raw Charge]

*Around the Metro, the Hurricanes signed Tony DeAngelo. Big yikes. [Canes Country]

*The Devils signed Dougie Hamilton. Even bigger yikes, but a different kind of yikes! [All About The Jersey]

*And finally, as we said, it was a busy kick-off to free agency season. Here’s a handy rundown of every single thing that happened, in case you missed anything. [Sportsnet]
