*Yesterday was a wrap on the NHL regular season, which means now we get to pick a fun good hockey team to root for! If you’re into that kind of thing. In what could only be described as poetry, the final game of the season was one in which Dave Hakstol’s Kraken blew a 3-1 lead in the third to lose to the Jets. As a result, here’s where the draft odds have ended up. [BSH]

*We’ve also got a full schedule for the first round and it is fixing to be a REALLY good time for hockey fans. []

*If you’re wondering what to expect from this first round, the short answer is: madness. [Sportsnet]

*Anyhoo, the Flyers. Friday’s last game of the season came along with a rather unceremonious unveiling of the winners of this season’ team awards. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of awards, we now know the winners of the points-based awards for the league. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Then over the weekend we got the exit interview pressers, most notably one from Ryan Ellis. [BSH]

*Ellis seemed to want to make very clear that he likes it here and wants to play for the Flyers. [NBC Sports Philly]

*A running theme through several of the players’ comments was that they really want fans to know they’ll do better next year. Isn’t that nice?! [Inquirer]

*Ivan Provorov sure had some things to say. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie’s got the 10 most important things from those pressers, for your convenience. [The Athletic]

*It’s going to be a long summer which means we have a lot of time to reflect on just what the heck went wrong here this year. [Inquirer]

*Really thought what didn’t go wrong? Charlie’s post-mortem on the season very eloquently lays out exactly what most of us have been thinking for a while now: it’s all bad. [The Athletic]

*We got a new Flyperbole for you, it dropped this weekend, you may have missed it. [BSH]

*And finally, it’s over. We’re done. Now we can look ahead. [BSH]
