*It’s 25 Under 25 kick off day here at Broad Street Hockey!! Who is pumped to rank some kids?? Hopefully you all got your votes in, because we got some very interesting results. First up, the Almost-Weres: the five who just missed the cut. [BSH]

*One of those honorable mentions is (spoiler alert) Maksim Sushko, who despite not making the cut this season may end up being a late-round steal for Ron. [Sports Talk Philly]

*Oh hey, Ron extended Robert Hagg! For two years, which is the most perfect length of time for a player like Hagg. [BSH]

*Despite the Phillies being actually good and this being a town obsessed with the Eagles at all times (the Eagles won the Super Bowl), the Flyers’ productive summer has keep them in the conversation. [NBC Sports Philly]

*DGB brings a little summer time content with his list of players who were traded, and then had to be forced to leave. Like the time they had to find Jeff Carter at the shore to ship him out of Columbus. [Sportsnet]

*With legal sports betting being the new law of the land, the NHL is of course trying to find a way to either make money off of it or ruin everyone’s fun if they can’t. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Did you miss this week’s BSH Radio? You should listen to it. It’s good. [BSH]

*And finally, have you been spending the summer doing cool stuff whilst wearing Flyers gear? Submit it to our Fanshots and you might be a part of Flyers Fan Fridays! [BSH]
