Here’s a bit of what we’re reading this fine December Philadelphia morning. Weigh in on some good reads and thought-provoking questions.

It’s not a matter of whether the NHL will be realigned, but how it will. The latest idea to be floated includes dropping the two-conference system and divisions altogether, replacing it with four conferences. The big change for the Flyers’ sector would be bringing the Capitals back, along with the Hurricanes. Take a look and let us know what you think. [Puck Daddy] [CSN Philly]

The holiday season is upon us, and with it, some of the year’s great beers. The venerable Joe Sixpack weighs in with some brews worth seeking out this month. I always look particularly forward to getting Mad Elf’d a handful of times each year. Any favorites of your own to share? [Joe Sixpack]

Rollins or Reyes? The Phils could be facing that decision and all that comes with each SS option. Bob Brookover throws his hat in Rollins’ ring. Who you got? [Inquirer]

The calls for Andy Reid’s ouster in South Philly grew to new heights after the Eagles were picked apart by the Seahawks on Thursday night. Who knows whether Jeffrey Lurie and Joe Banner will oblige, or who they’ll pick to replace Reid if they do. Dennis Deitch opines that while going with an unknown up-and-comer may have been the right choice back when Reid was given the reins, a seasoned veteran is needed now. He supports reaching out to Bill Cowher and Jeff Fisher as first options. Your thoughts? [Delco Times]

Mike Florio says Reid’s future in Philly could depend on his willingness to throw his second defensive coordinator in as many seasons under the bus. [ProFootballTalk]
