*Sad news out of Hamilton, ON yesterday as we learned of the passing of former Flyers goalie Ray Emery. Thoughts are with his family and friends. [BSH]

*The Flyers took care of three more contracts over the weekend, locking in Taylor Leier, Danick Martel, and Tyrell Goulbourne. [BSH]

*Speaking of Leier, he was a bit of a mixed bag last season. [BSH]

*Isaac Ratcliffe turned out to be a big surprise at development camp. In a good way. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And Alex Lyon was a bit of a surprise in net last season. [BSH]

*On Wyatt Kalynuk, and why he might be one of those late-round gems that we always hope to find. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Oskar Lindblom shares how he’s using this summer to prepare for a - hopefully - full season in the NHL this year. [Flyers]

*Ranking the Flyers’ crop of prospects, post-draft. [Philly Is Flyer]

*Do we think that Ron Hextall’s decision to bring in James van Riemsdyk means that he’s ready to part ways with Wayne Simmonds? Or is the team going to stick with both? [BSH]

*And finally, you guys remember neutral site regular season games? It might be fun if the league brought them back. [ESPN]
