*FOLKS the things are heating up! The rumors are flying! Swirling, even! Much to think about. Don’t forget about our constantly-updated rumor roundup for your reference ‘til Friday. [BSH]

*The fire seems hottest around James van Riemsdyk, who is apparently one of the hottest commodities now that a lot of the other big names have been moved. Remember how last year it was IMPOSSIBLE to trade him? Hahahaha the NHL is so stupid. [BSH]

*Jimbo isn’t the only one though; there are rumors surrounding quite a few Flyers and if Chuck is smart (lol) he can move a bunch of guys this week and really starting recuperating all the things he traded for the current terrible players we are stuck with. [Inquirer]

*That said, with so many moves happening well ahead of the deadline, why are the Flyers doing... nothing? [BSH]

*Well to be fair there was the blockbuster Isaac-Ratcliffe-for-nothing move. [On The Forecheck]

*Anyhoo, John Tortorella was in front of a microphone again yesterday and, once again, let us know that he’s the only one in the entire organization that is living in reality. [Inquirer]

*And he also let us know the bad news about Travis Konecny. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally, Charlie answered his mailbag questions! As always, the insight is worth absorbing. Because he’s the best. [The Athletic]
