Monday Morning Fly By: Ryan Ellis is a Flyer

*The big pre-expansion draft splash was made by ... the Flyers!? Ryan Ellis is a Philadelphia Flyer, and boy are we all giddy about it. [BSH]

*To get Ellis, the team sent Phil Myers and Nolan Patrick the other way. The Predators then flipped Patrick to Vegas for Cody Glass. It’s honestly stunning that the Flyers were able to add Ellis without moving the 13th overall pick or one of their top prospects. Helluva job, Chuck. [BSH]

*Speaking of Chuck Fletcher, the Flyers’ General Manager had some interesting things to say about the move for Ellis.
