*So the Flyers made their final cut yesterday and...it was actually two cuts. [BSH]

*This is curious, because it leaves on open spot on the roster. What’s that for? [Courier-Post]

*And why keep Lehtera? Charlie takes a guess, for subscribers. [The Athletic]

*Our old pal Scott Hartnell is calling it a career. Hard not to like that dude. [ProHockeyTalk]

*So we all know it’s a contract year for the Wayne Train. It’ll be interesting to see if he can bounce back from the injuries or if he’s cooked. [Philly.com]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks of Carter Hart not making the team? No? Well, here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Ivan Provorov is so dang good, you guys. [Philly.com]

*Mark Friedman didn’t make the team out of camp, but it would appear that he *did* make an impression on the powers that be. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of prospects, check in on the far-flung kids with this week’s prospect report. [BSH]

*Division previews all over the place, and this one thinks the Metro is still ruled by the old guard. [Sporting News]

*And our team-by-team previews continue in earnest with a look at the New York Islanders... [BSH]

*...and also those New Jersey Devils. [BSH]

*This power ranking heading into the season has the Flyers pretty much dead in the middle, which seems pretty fair. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, this is kind of fun: a poll of 50 or so players, coaches, and NHL executives to find out who really is the best in the league, now, and in the future. [ESPN]
