*The 25 Under 25 continues with big boy Isaac Ratcliffe, who if we are lucky may end up being a nice little second round steal from last year's draft. [BSH]

*So realistic expectations for Ivan Provorov in his second year? Oh, you know, just defenseman in the league. Keeping it realistic. [CSN Philly]

*You'll never guess who is listed as the worst contract on the Flyers' books headed into next season. Literally will never guess. [SB Nation]

*And the Flyers best contract is a fairly new one and will hopefully be the best bargain in the league in the next couple of years. [SB Nation]

*Flyers goalie prospect Carter Hart continues to impress for Team Canada. []

*The NHL seems to be building toward being a league built on solid stats, but in reality their data collection is pretty terrible at best. [All About The Jersey]

*The NHL is also a league that hates fun and also marketing its product, so they won't be letting any of the kids in juniors who have signed contracts with NHL clubs participate in the Olympics either. [Associated Press]

*Puck Daddy's next What If features a familiar face...what if the Oilers never traded for Chris Pronger? [Puck Daddy]

*And finally, yesterday was Sidney Crosby's 30th birthday, so blow through your boring August Tuesday with 30 of his greasiest highlights ever. Whatever, he's really good just enjoy it. [Puck Daddy]
