*Meltzer on things, mainly Scott Laughton, and where he might figure into the lineup at the start of this season. [Hockeybuzz]

*Speaking of the opening night lineup, is it too early to speculate? No. Never. [BSH]

*Ilya Bryzgalov, that loveable little scamp, famously said that Philadelphia is where goalies go to die. With Carter Hart and Alex Lyon coming up quickly, it would appear that the tide is turning. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Joel Farabee has some growing to do, but he was still impressive in his first development camp after being drafted. [BSH]

*Our friends over at The Athletic took a similar look at one of the later-round picks, Marcus Westfalt. [The Athletic]

*The secondary assist is a messy little thing that has huge impacts on how players are evaluated - and paid. [TSN]

*On next year’s free agency period, which could end up being a little messy for more than a few teams. [Puck Daddy]

*And about the league’s free agency process...it’s broken. And it needs to be fixed for the good of the game. [Blueshirt Banter]
