*We're coming to the end of our journey through the Flyers' top 25 players under 25; Brayden Schenn holds tight at the number two spot. Get ready for the winner. [BSH]

*Tim Saunders and Steve Coates continue with their look ahead at next season by examining the Flyers' probable top line. [Flyers]

*What should we reasonably expect from Steve Mason this year? [Pattison Ave]

*The NHL has decided to move the trade deadline to February 29th this year, but that's not even a real day, so this is weird. [The Score]

*Dan Carcillo continues his rather admirable mission to improve the lives of professional players after they've retired. [Sportsnet]

*Speaking of admirable missions, Jakub Voracek will be on one this season. [BSH]

*On hockey analytics and how they can be used to forecast future success. [TSN]

*DGB has lessons we can learn from the NHL's relatively sane summer. [Grantland]

*Only in Canada is "hockey knowledge" something that comes into play in a court of law. [National Post]

*Is there any chance that someone who is not Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel has a shot at the Calder this season? [Puck Daddy]

*And finally, speaking of McDavid vs. Eichel, here they are playing NHL16. Bonus, you get a pretty nice preview of the game here. [TSN]
