*They Flyers made a couple of more cuts yesterday. Nothing big, but it does get us closer to the final opening night roster. Which is fun and good. [BSH]

*Good news if you're a Charlie fan: he's taking his Ten Things over to his new home at The Athletic! Check out his ten things to learn from the preseason opener. No one likes to pay for stuff but there's a lot of really good sports stuff to read there if you can spare the $50 a year. [The Athletic]

*We've also got some observations! The Flyers may have lost that first game to the Islanders but there was some good stuff there, folks. [BSH]

*One of the best things from that game? Oskar Lindblom, who is impressing a lot of people, including Jake Voracek. [Inquirer]

*Scott Laughton is hoping he's finally found a way to stick with the Flyers. [CSN Philly]

*You might think the Travis Konecny is a lock to make the team this year, but he's not taking it for granted. (eds. note: Travis Konecny is totally a lock to make this team.) [CSN Philly]

*And finally, it what might be the most NHL thing ever, the league-mandated smaller goalie equipment somehow won't be ready for the start of this season. So nothing is actually changing. This league is very, very Mickey Mouse sometimes. [Yahoo Sports]
