*Brent Flahr is The Guy when it comes to the Flyers' draft strategy, so it makes sense that folks would want to pick his brain. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of the draft, next up on your board is a Czech kid whose place in the draft rankings has gone up and down over time. Still not a bad player, though. [BSH]

*And speaking of not bad players (wow what amazing segues here), Cutter Gauthier continues to kill it at Worlds. [The Hockey News]

*On Joel Farabee's season, which was a letdown, but there was a reason for the relatively poor performance. One hopes. [BSH]

*Charlie's kicking off his review with a look at Kevin Hayes, who will almost certainly be one of the first players moved in Danny Briere's rebuild. [The Athletic]

*Just how are the Panthers doing this, huh? If you said "goaltending" you'd be absolutely right but that answer is too easy and people have articles to write. So let's take a look at the forecheck. [Sportsnet]

*And while goaltending has certainly been A Story in the Florida Panthers' run to the Final, not enough has been made of the goaltending story with the Vegas Golden Knights. [TSN]

*And finally, Jason Kelce and the Stanley Cup. This seems relevant to your interests. [Inquirer]

Enjoy your long weekend, American friends! We'll be off on Monday, as the Founding Fathers intended. See you Tuesday!
