Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes…

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Colorado Avalanche Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

*It’s development camp week! Already! Bit early this year, but here are the details from the team. [Flyers]

*Yesterday, the Flyers tendered offers to their pending restricted free agents. Well, most of them. [BSH]

*As we head into free agency this weekend, Charlie has put together a pretty extensive list of guys the Flyers might do well to target. 21 of them, to be exact. [The Athletic]

*We learned over the weekend that at least five teams will be in on the John Tavares sweepstakes, with the star player hearing pitches from each of them at a secret location somewhere in LA. It’s fun to think about what those pitches might look like. [Vice Sports]

*While Tavares is definitely the top prize, he isn’t the first big contract to be signed. That honor goes to John Carlson, who elected to stay with the Capitals, who elected to paaaaay him. [ProHockeyTalk]

*So, how does this affect the Flyers? [NBC Sports Philly]

*But yeah, this is the year Ron needs to do some stuff. He’s proven he’s a good drafter, but he’s still come something to prove when it comes to improving the roster with NHL talent. [Philly.com]

*DGB on the most surprising moves that happened at the draft his past weekend. [Sportsnet]

*The NHL doesn’t seem to be in any rush to do anything about their concussion problem. Which is a problem. [New York Post]

*And finally, you probably missed the news - because just about everyone did - but the Flyers have revealed what will be their third jersey for the upcoming season. [BSH]
