*Alright so there's only one thing any of us are talking about right now, and that's the Big News about Keith Jones being the new President of Hockey Ops. So let's run down all the coverage for yous:

  • Oh, don't forget the new orange era too. There's that. [BSH]
  • One thing all of the official press stuff said? Rebuild. They all said the word. [NBC Sports Philly]
  • The folks at the Inquirer got this news out early, love that for them. [Inquirer]
  • The official write up of this is, of course, aimed at making you think that this move is new new new and unlike anything the Flyers have done before. Which... technically? [Flyers]
  • Charlie took his signature 10 Things treatment to the Jones hire. [The Athletic]

*Let's get to the analyses now. Naturally folks had a lot to say about this. Like Charlie, he had stuff to say:

*He also wrote some stuff down, specifically about how this just looks like more of the same from the Flyers. [The Athletic]

*The Flyers are placing a rather big bet on two guys with zero experience doing the jobs they've been hired to do, which is a really wild tack to take, given the state of the organization right now. [BSH]

*Also we reviewed Noah Cates' pretty great season. [BSH]

*Also also, finally, the community draft has commenced and your choice for #1 overall was no shock. Be sure to get your votes in on these each day! [BSH]
