Monday Morning Fly By: The Avs did it!

*The Colorado Avalanche are your 2022 Stanley Cup Champions! And boy did he ever win it. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Well, just in case you’re getting a little too optimistic about the Flyers‘ season, the team revealed that Joel Farabee has had some pretty major surgery and won’t be ready to leave for another 3-4 months. MONTH. [BSH]

*But people seem to think that John Tortorella will make a big difference. So there is this. There may not be any players, but the ones we have will all be tortured! [Daily Faceoff]

* Speaking of Torts, is it possible he’s already considering getting a new boss because Chuck Fletcher is on the world’s shortest leash? [BSH]

* Anyway, the draft. It’s next week! How about a Finnish winger for your Flyers? [NBC Sports Philly]

*We are 25th on the big board and are looking for a WHL offensive defenseman. [BSH]

*In Former Flyers News™, Luke Richardson will be Chicago’s next head coach. [Second City Hockey]

*And Alex Lyon kicked a shutout to secure the Calder Cup for Chicago Wolves. Glad to see him doing well. [Canes Country]

* It’s almost time for the Hockey Hall of Fame classes and this year’s list has plenty of names you could argue for. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, a brand new Flyperbole released this weekend! The Farabee news broke in real time as the boys were recording, so it’s a must-watch. [BSH]
