*We’ve got 34 days until the Flyers first preseason game against the Islanders on September 16. That’s not that long! We can totally do this! Anyhoo, one way to pass the time is to read about the Flyers and their prospects. Up at #18 on the 25 Under 25: Taylor Laczynski. [BSH]

*One of the newest additions to the team, Jay O’Brien, makes a strong debut in his first 25U25 at #17. [BSH]

*Former Flyer Justin Williams was in town over the weekend for the charity hockey game, and now that the Carolina Hurricanes are being coached by Former Flyer Rod Brind’Amour, seems like a good time to reflect on what they did in Philly. [NBC Sports Philly]

*On Wayne Simmonds’ 2017-18 season, and why his warrior-like mentality may have hurt the team a bit last year. [BSH]

*Can’t go too long without asking, again, should the NHL change the playoff format? [Pensburgh]

*And finally, it’s been a pretty eventful offseason, eh? Lots of stuff happened. And some of it was uh...questionable. Let’s look at the five contracts that, on their face, make no sense at all. [ESPN]
