*We have 27 days until the first preseason game! Less than a month! Hang in, friends.

*Corey Pronman from The Athletic is doing deep-ish dives on all 31 teams’ prospect pools and ranking them. He’s got the Flyers at 12. Discuss. [The Athletic]

*Well, we here at Broad Street Hockey discussed. We had a lot of thoughts about this. [BSH]

*The Wayne Simmonds matzo ball remains the biggest matzo ball hanging out there for the Flyers heading into the season. Sign, not sign. Will he be back to old form, or disappointing again. Suppose there’s a chance he comes out of the gate hot though, right? [NBC Sports Philadelphia]

*The Flyers went behind the scenes with recent draftee Wyatte Wylie. Who has a cool name. [Flyers]

*We’ve just about made it to the top ten of our 25 Under 25, and just outside is Robert Hagg, the defenseman who has been kind of a polarizing among the fan base. [BSH]

*And finally, if anyone knows how dangerous hits to the head in hockey are, it’s Eric Lindros. And he has a pretty radial idea for how to make the game safer for those who play it. I’m not sure you’ll like it, but it’s hard to argue that he’s wrong. [National Post]
